WORLD CLASS INSTRUCTION

We are proud to offer world class instruction by European guest instructors: Willie Cole and Lars Magnusson. All hailing from the West London Shooting School heritage and teaching the Percy Standbury method, students from novice to expert can draw from their highly regarded tutelage.

Lars and his wife Jennifer established Blixt & Co in 2008 and began the pursuit to bring authentic driven shooting to America.
