Shooting, whether it be sporting clays, skeet, trap, or birds, comes naturally to Gil who has been shooting for over 44 years. An avid hunter and fisherman since early childhood, Gil demonstrates an unparalleled passion for shooting, and the psychology behind it.   He has won numerous titles in both skeet and sporting clay competitions and has taught professionally since 1984. He was also an instructor for the Holland & Holland Shooting School of England and has studied with many great shooters and instructors. He has been featured on ESPN, TNN and hosted a regular spot on the television show “Pull–America’s Great Gun Clubs” on the Outdoor Life cable channel. Known worldwide, Gil has six shooting videos currently sold in the United States and two sold in England and Australia.   His quick eye has served him well both on the range and behind the camera. He holds a Bachelor of Science degree in business and photography and had a professional photography studio for 23 years, serving clients such as Exxon, Dow Chemical, Dupont, Honeywell and Compaq Computers to name a few.   Gil displays a contagious passion for shooting and uses a “no-bull” approach to get to the essence of his students’ shooting problems and solutions. His ability to communicate with visual simplicity, as well as his sense of humor and general love of people are what make him “quite a character” and a terrific model for his students. In 1989, Gil encountered a shoulder injury that restricted his shooting for two years. His passion for the game drove him to discover his real passion which was teaching others not only how to become better shots but better people as well. Although his shoulder is not 100%, if he is not teaching or fishing you will likely find him shooting clays or birds somewhere around the world.

Rich is a true artisan with a lifetime devotion to the craft of gunsmithing. Growing up in Washington D.C. in the late 60s and early 70s, with no video games to waste the days away, his spent free time building models and other hands-on projects of his generation. Rich was introduced to basic mechanics and machine tool theory and operation as a youth by his dad, who was a scientist at Johns Hopkins Applied Physics lab and a gunsmithing hobbyist. In 1979, being in the right place at the right time, Rich was hired by BerettaUSA who recognized his aptitude and eagerness to learn. From there, he bounced back and forth between working Beretta’s Accokeek Maryland location and apprenticing in Gardone Val Trompia, Italy. His stints in Gardone offered extensive training on the 680 series shotgun, which to this day remains a tried and true favorite. Since that time, he has built a career spanning more than 30 years. While Rich enjoys the creativity and challenge of custom stock building, he also finds a personal zen in the rhythm and flow of fitting barrels. Being one of the specific tasks trained for at Beretta Italy, a properly fitted barrel is essential to the feel of a quality gun. Rich has had the opportunity to work on a number of fine guns made by elite gun makers. Discriminating gun owners trust their fine firearms to Cole’s expertise. If a certain repair or stocking job is outside of his bailiwick, Rich will try to refer clients to a trusted colleague. Rich is passionate about working with customers to select the right gun for their needs, achieve proper fit, and provide ongoing service to ensure proper function for years to come. With his extensive knowledge of a wide variety of the world’s best shotguns, at the end of the day, Rich still believes that the basic Perazzi MX and Beretta 680 series are among the best lines of guns on the market. Incredible balance, near mechanical perfection, and optimal for affordable and high-end customization.

Mark actually got into shooting by accident when he was 12 years old. He didn't come from a shooting background at all, so when his dad was invited to go clay shooting by a friend, he asked if Mark could go in his place instead. It was literally the first time Mark had ever seen a gun; He hadn't even held an air rifle before. But by all accounts Mark was a complete natural – no one believed that he had never shot before – so Mark was encouraged to take it up. His dad started taking him to the local clay ground twice a month as that was all they could afford.  It wasn't long after that. His local clay ground in Essex ran 70-bird competitions on Sundays and almost right away Mark started winning the junior section. After that, His dad and Mark started touring the country, making sure that he entered the England selection shoots. By the time Mark was 15, only three years after he first fired a gun, Mark made the England Sporting junior team. Ever since then, shooting has been his life. Mark's proudest achievement has to be winning the Stratstone Ultimate One at the Royal Berkshire Shooting School. Mark went home with a brand new Range Rover Autobiography! That competition may never happen again, so it was a bit of a miracle that Mark won it, especially with a score of 25 straight (the next best score was 19)! Mark still has to pinch himself when he thinks about it – it really was an incredible day.
