Fitting you to the right Shotgun


Fit, Form and Function. This phrase starts with the single-most important variable. Fit. And, it is for a reason. The proper fit of a shotgun is the building block off which everything else is built. Fit incorporates hold, sight, pointing/aiming, swing and shooting. It should be as instinctive as pointing a finger at a target and yelling bang!

Where do we start? 

     · We introduce you to the idea and process of clay shooting. 

     · We can begin with the NRA’s basic shotgun course certification, if you need it. 

     · We get you on the range as quickly as we can. Introducing you to Skeet, Trap, 5-Stand and Sporting Clays.

     · We coach you through the fundamentals of beginner shooting.

     · We introduce you to foot placement, gun placement, sight alignment and impact alignment. 

     · Then, and only then, we help get you into the right FIT gun in your price range.

Let's Learn to Shoot

Form and Function


Now that we’ve covered the “fit”, let’s talk about Form and Function. 

Form relates to position, how your body is aligned, stance, eyes, sight picture and sight alignment. ICEFDT helps you to understand your proper alignment to the targets point of impact, picking up the clay at the earliest possible point, and everything a beginner needs to know about swing and follow-through.

Function brings fit and form together into a nice package when you pull the trigger. It is the entire package wrapped into a single shot. With the proper fit gun and disciplined  form leading up to the shot, we’ll help you put it all together, so you start to count your “misses” and not your “hits” sooner than expected. 

Learn More - Etiquette

Despite what the Rule Books say and specify, skeet is a very social sport and you will enjoy your shooting the most if you follow generally accepted good manners and also a few that are peculiar to our sport.

We will take the time to make sure you know the simple rules of Etiquette.
