The following are testimonials and comments from our police, military and private clients who have enjoyed and benefited from the WMS firearms training facility and our shooting courses.
A fantastic day of expert tuition, guidance and fun. I have been shooting fror over 25 years and this is the most fun I have ever had!
Peter Gourri, Solicitior and BASC member
I just ahd to write and say a very big "Thank You" fro your patient instruction and helpful advice throughout our range day on 21st August.
As a purely sporting rifle it is uncommon, even on the hill, for me to take shots of any great distance, but under your instruction having consistently managed to hit the kill zone to 600yds and beyond, I came away with considerably more confidence in my firearm and ability to adjust scope settings in the field.
Dr. Aubrey Kerr MB BCh BAO MFSSoc. Norfolk
This is just a quick message to say thanks for putting on a superb day for me on the 19th. The world of firearms can be daunting for a beginner such as myself, but Jon and yourself made me feel very welcocme and smoothed my transition to centrefire rifles excellently. I feel that I now have a good base of knowledge and technique to take with me into the shooting world, and I intend to come back to learn to shoot larger calibres at longer distances.
Thanks again for a fantastic day.
On behalf of the chaps, I’d just like to say a massive thank you for your patience and wisdom this weekend. We all had an absolutely superb time and are already looking forward to coming back. Hopefully to achieve consistent accuracy at greater range!
Mark Shaw, Mint Partners, London
We would like to thank you for the hospitality you showed on the corporate day arranged at your fabulous facilities on 9th March 2011. The feedback from all who attended was definitely positive and we are looking forward to arranging our next day or days training. The facilities were fantastic and the personal manner in which Andrew Venables handled the briefings and training were admirably professional. Definitely beats Golf!!
"We will be back "please get me a sling". Really useful. It has improved my confidence enormously."
Andy Pearce, North Somerset Deer Management Group
"Another good day, will be back!!! Had a great time with the lads - great venue to be with likeminded shooters."
Chris Blackburn, UK Gunworks
"Learnt loads as usual. Good mix of theory and practical combined with experienced input from Andrew."
"Two Roes in the most breathtaking surroundings. As the sun came up behind the snowcovered Pyrenees, the mist lay over the fields at dawn and deer were everywhere, it had to be one of the most stunning mornings I had ever experienced. Andrew....your training proved incredible and I was confident and accurate with both shots...down to you honey. THANK YOU"
Claire Zambuni while stalking in France
"Excellent experience. Should have done this years ago. Also wish something like this would be available in my country."
Danish Ali Pir, Pakistan
Testimonial from Cumbria Constabulary regarding a Humane Destruction of Large Animals Firearms Course....
"Dear Andrew, I am writing to thank you for the two day presentation you gave to our rifle officers on 21st & 22nd October 2010. I believe you bridged the gap in knowledge between normal range shooting skills and the practical skills needed for the safe and effective destruction of large mammals."
"We all found your classroom input very informative pitched at the right level for practitioners. One of the most important things for us was your experience in large animals " reaction to shot" and the difference between stopping an animal and trying to kill it first time."
"The range day was excellent too, building on our existing skills. You practically covered humane destruction with the weaponry we have already available, as well as highlighting lightweight aids that are practical for the environments we may find ourselves in."
"I am convinced that any officer called to understand the humane destruction of animals, will greatly benefit from your input. Especially if they have no great practical experience in this area through hunting/ stalking."
Graham Nelson, PC 786, Firearms Operations Unit, Cumbria Constabulary
I would like to say a huge thank you for all your hard work in making possible what was an extremely enjoyable days long range shooting last Sunday. I was very impressed with the vast layout of targets and the obvious incredible scenery...The targets presented some very challenging shots to say the least...I managed to get through 130 rounds of .308 ammo in my ( Green Sako TRG )..I did have more with me but by the end of the day due to the failing light .. I had to pack up and call it a day...Extreme fun to say the least .....I`m sure you will remember me and my shooting partner Ray ..he was using the Parker Hale , to good effect too..!
I am hoping to return in the lighter evenings of next year to nail that 1017 yard rabbit ..again ....So see you again soon.
Best regards.. Martin
