ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
Peter Blakeley is the resident shooting coach at the Dallas Gun Club. He writes a monthly article for Sporting Clays magazine.
A fulsome text on shooting technique and related subjects that can be used either as a full course for a new shooter or as a refresher on problem areas. Every chapter contains valuable information, and Blakeley pays equal attention to the shooter, the gun, chokes, loads and ballastics. Looking for nuggets of wisdom on my problems, I ran quickly into some thoughtful advise on eye dominance, lead techniques and range evaluation. Blakeley covers it all in this solid contribution to shooting lit. Chris Camuto, August 2004, Gray's Sporting Journal.
