IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT
For the next few years I will be coaching overseas.
I will be returning to the Dallas area in Mid 2016.
I would like to wish my clients all the best for the future.

PETE BLAKELY is a shotgun shooting lessons instructor extraordinaire -- you'll have to visit one of his shooting schools for all the facts, but let us tell you briefly what makes Pete so extraordinary.

Pete spent his early years in the U.K. (where "Sporting Clays" began) and then moved to the U.S. It is this unique background combination that makes Pete one of the finest Gun Fitters, Shooting Instructors and Sporting Clay Course Designers around.

Shotgun lessons or instructions must include proper gun fit. And this is where Pete shines. 

Unlike a rifle, there is no back sight on a shotgun and to use one to full potential, the users eye must become the back sight. Because we are all different shapes and sizes, alterations must be made to the dimensions of the stock to achieve a perfect shotgun fit. 

As you mount a badly fitted gun, if your eye is out of alignment with the rib by as little as a quarter of an inch at the gun end, this will translate into several feet or more at 30 yards. 

A perfectly fitted shotgun depends on two essential ingredients: 

1. A flawless gun mount.
2. The skill of the gun fitter.

It is this custom fitting, with an initial shooting lesson included, that will make you a better shooter quickly.

Custom Gun Fitting

What exactly is a custom a gun fit? We often hear it said; "we aim a rifle but we point a shotgun." Unlike a rifle, there is no back sight on a shotgun and to use one to full potential, the users eye must become the back sight. Because we are all different shapes and sizes, alterations must be made to the dimensions of the stock to achieve this. So can you use a shotgun without having it fitted? Of course. The shotgun, with its wide pattern, is a forgiving weapon. I have no doubt that you will hit some of the birds some of the time with a gun that doesn't fit properly. But you will hit more with a gun that does. As you mount a badly fitted gun, if your eye is out of alignment with the rib by as little as a quarter of an inch at the gun end, this will translate into several feet or more at 30 yards. 

A perfectly fitted gun depends on two essential ingredients: -

1. A flawless gun mount.
2. The skill of the gun fitter.
