As a lifelong pistol & rifle shooter taking up clay target shooting presented quite a challenge to me . In the beginning it felt quite alien but immensely satisfying, for a few months I bumbled along not making much progress at all and got quite frustrated , a good friend suggested I take some lessons and recommended David Beardsmore. After an initial Gun fit with David i immediately recognised His attention to detail and vast  knowledge, there was no doubt in my mind and  I proceeded immediately with a Lesson plan Tailored for me.

With David’s constant coaching & support  over time I have perfected  David’s method giving me a solid framework and process  that has improved my shooting skills immensely and with it my confidence to now compete in championships such as the Premier league, English open, British open and world English sporting championships to mention a few. I have progressed from B class upward and I am now on the threshold of AA class.  

I compete regularly in  Registered competitions and have achieved many Class wins, also Achieving British open finalist 2016, Honesberie Top Gun finalist 2018, white Gold challenge finalist 2017,  The shooting Gazette Top Gun Winner 2018, handicap challenge finalist 2017, 2018.  As I progress with David’s constant world class coaching skills supporting me I’m am in no doubt there will be many greater achievements to come.
