Howdy folks I was wondering if anyone in the NOVA area knew a good instructor that offered private 1 on 1 coaching for skeet to the beginner (level 1). I took a look at both the VASkeet and NSSA lists of instructors but personal recommendations always outweigh printed lists to me.

I'm pretty green when it comes to skeet but I've been out a couple of times and enjoy it even though I can't seem to hit much of anything. I figured lessons up front would stop me from developing a frankenstein shooting style. I'm going to reach out to Bull Run (since this is where I've been shooting) to see if they have a list as well but one can never have enough names of good qualified experts when it comes to coaching/instruction.

Thanks in advance for any names or help y'all can share.

Jack... I am in the process of moving from King George to Afton. Never-the-less, if you want a lesson or two and are willing to drive down to King George (due east of Fredericksburg), I can accomodate you. ...Bob_K...
