Brian has been shooting clay targets since he was sixteen.  As the Captain of the George Mason University Trap & Skeet Team, in 1983 his team won their first national championship and he became an accomplished international skeet shooter.  In the early 1990's he began shooting sporting clays and driven/flushed game birds in Europe and Africa.  In 1993 he returned to the U.S. and began shooting pheasants in South Dakota and doves/pigeons in Argentina.  In 2014 he obtained his National Sporting Clays Association (NSCA) Level I Instructor Certification followed by his NSCA Level II certification in 2016.  He has worked/taught at four gun clubs in the eastern U.S., including as the General Manager of a trap, skeet, and sporting clays club in Florida.  He considers the Sarasota Gun Club his home club now and teaches sporting clays weekly here for nine months a year.  He works with shooters at all levels from beginners to tournament competitors.  His close association with Cole Gunsmithing in Naples, FL enables his clients to obtain the best guns and equipment; access to shoot numerous demo guns; individual gun fitting and gun repairs/modifications; and he coordinates yearly Cole-sponsored trips to Argentina for ducks, doves, pigeons, and perdiz, where his field shooting instruction is invaluable.  Brian is currently working on his NSCA Level III Instructor certification.
