After spending 35 years in the motor trade Steve decided to follow his passion and become a shooting instructor. He started shooting with his father at the age of 10 using a bolt action .410, and was immediately hooked on the sport. In his teens he worked at a local clay club as a trapper, at weekends and in the school holidays.
Later he taught his eldest daughter to shoot and found he had a great aptitude for coaching, so in 2016 completed various CPSA courses and also qualified with the Association of Professional Shooting Instructors (APSI), and was accepted as an associate member. Not long after he started working with us here at Bisley Shooting Ground.
Previously Steve owned his own garage selling sports and prestige cars and before this worked for Mercedes Benz for many years. He still has a great interest in cars and motorcycles and very much enjoys off road riding on the green lanes in Surrey and Hampshire.

Martin is a multi-disciplined clay shooter, shooting Sporting, FITASC, Compaq and Skeet, who also enjoys coaching in the field.
Martin decided to turn his passion for shooting into his profession and became a shooting instructor for several years before joining Bisley Shooting Ground in 2016.
His previous career spanned from HM Armed Services where he qualified as a small-arms instructor and a member of the Army Shooting Team, winning national prizes at Bisley, to corporate sales for Mercedes Benz.
Coming from rural Cambridge Martin spent his leave periods working with a Game Keeper where he developed a keen interest in Game Shooting. He has also coached in the field at a number of estates.

Ian has been involved in shooting for over 30 years and is a passionate game shot. With a wealth of experience both in the field and on the school, Ian can certainly iron out those bad habits and perfect your shooting.
Ian joined the NHS as a groundsman after school, became head gardener in 1987 and has remained in this position ever since. Ian qualified as a shooting instructor in 2007 with the Scottish Clay Target Association so he could bring his years of experience to the clay shooting discipline to help all levels of shooters improve their shooting. He is Braidwood’s Head Instructor.
Ian has huge enthusiasm in introducing new shots, and particularly Young Shots to this great sport. Ian very much enjoys coaching out in the field as well. He has a very good eye for gun fits and can tell what gun would suit someone just by looking at them.
Ian also plays a key role within the Grounds team for the designing and setting up of the courses for all our competitions and events.
When not shooting Ian can be found picking up with his 3 Springer Spaniels, fishing or playing golf.
With over 50 years of shooting experience, David took up coaching to put something back into the sport that has given him so much pleasure. David is a fully qualified BASC Safe Shot, Safety officer and Shotgun Coach.
David spent most of his career in agriculture forming strong links with the countryside and conservation. ‘At the end of the season I used to put my gun away, get it out in September, and wondered why my shooting lacked a certain consistency!’ Ring any bells? Since then David has been perfecting coaching techniques and takes tremendous satisfaction when instructing shooters, particularly seeing novice shooters break their first clay target. Who knows, a future Olympian may come from Bisley at Braidwood.
