 August M Crocker

 August M Crocker

My name is August and I own August M Crocker Fine Guns. I've been a competitive shooter for over 35 years, 15 of which I spent shooting in Master Class. In addition to shooting instruction, I also offer fittings with every gun that I sell; a shooter must have a gun that fits well and is comfortable in recoil to improve and enjoy the game of Clays. My lessons start there and move into the fundamentals and etiquette of Sporting Clays, Skeet & Trap. Whether you are beginning in this great sport or trying to advance from AA to Master Class, I'll be glad to discuss your goals and how we can get you there. Most importantly, I guarantee you will have fun!

Jeff Foster

My name is Jeff Foster and I am the owner and head instructor at Apex Shooting School. I have been a Master Class competitor for 18 years, and I still shoot competitively both in the US and abroad. I have been coaching for the past 10 years and have several well decorated students (feel free to contact me for references).

I am a shooter, a target setter and a coach. This mix of skills allows me to teach and coach students to get the best out of their Clays game in all aspects. My program covers the following: 1) physical techniques and tools, 2) the mental game 3) diet and nutrition, and 4) complete practice programs. I do not do 1-hour lessons, but there are plenty of good instructors out there if that is what you're looking for! If you are looking for long term coaching to get you to your goals and if you are willing to put in the time and the practice, I am the coach that can get you there. Please feel free to contact me with any additional questions!
