Similar to an IDPA match but only firearm used is a shotgun. Stages include steel and clay targets. One stage is usually a “Walk and Stalk" stage where targets are engaged from shooting boxes along the archery trail. Most stages will have about 12 targets and the "Walk and Stalk" up to 25. Reloads are on the clock and minimum 6 round capacity shotgun is strongly suggested but no maximum limit on capacity. Starting with the March 2016 match initial loading will be limited to 8. See below in the More Info section for additional match information.

Thanks to the set up volunteers - it's a lot of steel to move around to set up a TacShotgun match and lots of help is needed.
A typical tactical shotgun stage. Poppers hiding behind barrels requiring different shooting locations to engage all the targets.
