My story so far
My introduction to shooting came via work when I was invited on a few corporate clay and game days. I quickly became addicted. I realised that to take it seriously I needed professional instruction so I had a series of lessons at the West London Shooting School in 2006. I got my licence in March 2007.
Since then I have regularly shot English Sporting. I have competed in the World English Sporting Championships in the UK. I shoot game regularly in this country and I have shot game three times in Argentina.
In March 2014 I passed the CPSA’s Safety Officers Course and in September 2014 I passed the Level 1 Instructor’s course. In September 2018 I passed the Level 2 Sporting Coach course. I am a member of the CPSA team and instructed at The Midlands Game Fair , last year’s Game Fair at Hatfield House and this year at Ragley Hall* see Pull magazine article below.I have been an Associate member of APSI since 2017.
I retired from my full-time job at the end of 2016 and since then have been working as a freelance Coach at EJ Churchill, The West London Shooting School, Atkin, Grant and Lang, Royal Berkshire Shooting School and latterly at Bisley Shooting Ground.
I am also a qualified English Sporting Referee and I refereed The Super Final of The World English Sporting 2018 at EJ Churchill.To aid coaching FITASC I have also recently qualified as a Regional FITASC Referee.
