At the SCSC we pride ourselves in having some of the best instructors in the business. We always want to make sure that everyone feels welcome and that you are never ‘just another customer’. Some clay grounds want to get you in one door and out the other before you can ask “can I go clay shooting?” We will never do this. Our instructors believe that every person is different when it comes to clay shooting so everyone needs a different approach. The only thing that doesn’t change is the quality of coaching.
"I get great pleasure from teaching and seeing clients progress, come back for more and turn into competitive shots,” he says. “I’ve worked closely with Todd Bender from America over the last few years and, having been voted the best instructor in the world on the skeet range, he’s a great influence."
Ron has been with us since 2000 and is the head honcho. His love of shooting started back in the early 1980s when he got hooked on the sport after attending a corporate day with the instructors from Browning Guns. He applied for a shotgun certificate, bought his own gun and went to get some proper coaching.
From there he soon started shooting competitively and studying the art of teaching in more detail. A certified course set up by the Clay Pigeon Shooting Association saw him taught by perhaps three of the best instructors in the business: Mike Williams, John Topliss and world-renowned Chris Batha.
He hasn’t looked back since and continues to be one of the best and most popular instructors in Scotland.
