This web site is dedicated to all aspects of shotgun shooting, but especially to the field of shooting instruction. For many people good shotgun shooting performance seems out of reach, being very much the preserve of the naturally gifted. In fact any reasonably co-ordinated person can shoot well, but to achieve your full potential you must first learn then practice the basics of shooting technique. Within these pages there are suggestions as to how this might be achieved.
There are sections for both Game and Clay shooters, although most techniques apply to both. Please click the links above to explore.
Total Shooting is closely linked with the Association of Professional Shooting Instructors, and runs a variety of coaching courses in its name. The APSI is the leading instructor association in the UK, numbering many of the top coaches and shooting grounds among its membership.
This website is for shooters and shooting instructors!
