OK, upfront, I'm a newbie. But, I've been blessed by having lots of guys at our Bullseye Range help me (Nashville Match Masters - TN). They have been extraordinarily generous and supportive with their time and expertise. My mentor, our Range Officer, Jim Riley has been particularly helpful along with HM Terry Labbe. I've read the books, looked at lots of sites, forums, and posts. I shoot a RO with a Marvel upper, a RO prepared by Jim Salyer (Wow, he did great job), use UltraDot II's, and have started reloading with a Dillion 650 (No one told me how much "fun" that would be). At 70, and not having shot for 43 years, I've been told I'm improving fairly quickly and am shooting just the "black" more consistently. I've taken to this sport, love it, and practice nearly every day. To shoot as well as I am able, I know I'm at the stage where I need formal coaching before I ingrain too many bad habits. Therefore, I'm seeking out options for in-depth training. Yes, next fall I'll be going to Camp Perry clinic, know of the program at Ft. Benning, and am aware of Brian Zens' clinics.

So, with the above, do any of you know of any other Bullseye Training or clinics within 500-600 miles of Tennessee that might help me? I need a detailed Bullseye Training/Clinic or one-on-one coaching. Although a newbie, I'm a quick study and will be able to digest training/coaching at the mid- or advanced level. Thanks for any suggestions in advance...W.

You have already met most of who i would suggest Terry and the gang at match masters are some of the best. I would research Ft Benning before ever trying to go there as they have stopped all civilian involvement at the present time. I would just study the articles on the bullseye encyclopedia sight and try and shoot as many matches as possible, Chattanooga rifle and pistol club is one that has Saturday monthly matches, or travel down a little farther and shoot with us at RBGC gun club in dawsonville ga, or at SRGC in conyers.
