A Unique Approach to the Instructional
Video with Chris Batha and Bruce Scott
Learn to follow your instincts with Chris
Batha, Chief Instructor and Gunfitter for Churchill Gunmakers
and Bruce Scott of the Shotgun Journal. Their combination
of classic wingshooting techniques and proven clay - busting
tips is packed with technical and practical information. Churchill
and Stansbury styles plus the three major techniques are demonstrated
with the "EYE CAM" on the layouts, high towers and
grouse butts of the Churchill Shooting Grounds, London, England.
If you are serious about improving your individual style and
skill level, don't miss "Mastering the Double Gun".
For the Wing Shooter who shoots clays, for the Clay Shooter
Every missed shot, no matter your experience, is caused by
a breakdown in the fundamentals. Mastering these fundamentals
is the secret to straight shooting. Once learned, they can
be built upon by the individual to develop his or her own
personal style. This new video is not about how Chris and
Bruce shoot, or anyone else, but a distillation of the lessons
learned from over thirty years of instruction in wing and
clay shooting worldwide and a lifelong passion for fine guns.
Learn to follow your "instincts" with this unique
approach to shooting excellence.
