“Great course to take your basic shooting to the next level.

Had a superb time out with Kerry. He took me through the basics and helped spot bad practice before it became bad habits.

Came away feeling far more confident than I’d been before being there. Kerry was very patient.

Overall, a superb course. I thoroughly recommend it.”
