Gold Medal Wingshooting School

Chris Batha

At Rock Springs Ranch & Lodge, April 20, 2002
Proudly Presented by E.J. Churchill Gunmakers

On Sunday, April 21, 2002, the Gold Medal Concours d’Elegance will host a wing-shooting school at Rock Springs Ranch & Lodge. The instructor will be Chris Batha, head gunfitter at E.J. Churchill Gunmakers. Chris is widely known as a shooting coach both in Britain and in America, and his tips appear often in Shooting Sportsman Magazine. His sensible teaching benefits shooters at all skill levels, and his personal style makes the experience not only worthwhile but also enjoyable.

April 21 is the day after the Concours and the Western Double Gun & Rifle Championships.

There will be two schools: From 9 AM till 12 noon; and from 1 PM till 4.

      o Each session is open to only four students.

      o Students must be 12 or older and familiar with guns and gun safety.
      o 12- or 20-gauge guns only, preferably break-action type.
      o The fee is $275 per person, inclusive of targets and ammunition.

Batha will teach walkup shooting for flushing gamebirds both passing and going away, on the ranch’s 5-stand and wobble trap stations. Each student will fire 100 – 125 shells. The school is for novice (but not beginning) through experienced wingshooters, and will teach students to combine basics-stance, head and body position, gun mount, focus and vision-into a simple, unified technique that produces natural wingshooting ability.
