Bob Shuley: Level 1 NSSA Certified Instructor

Bob has been shooting clay targets and upland game for more than 65 years. He has achieved the highest classification in all clay target disciplines - AAA in skeet, AA in trap, and Master Class in Sporting Clays. For the last 20 years, Bob has been working with the future generation of clay target shooters - specifically youth. Before the SCTP arrived, Bob taught the finer points of skeet shooting with a great degree of success. Today he works with SCTP shooters, especially the very young. His goal is to enable young shooters to out perform more experienced shooters through encouragement and mentoring - a process Bob calls “boot camp”. Bob enjoys watching junior shooters improve their shooting skills and achieving shooting success. Bob also works with experienced shooters who are looking for help with their skeet game. His accomplishments are listed below.
