    Where are you located?

    Get a trainer with a good local reputation. If a Trainer has to travel out of state to do training, there is a fair chance he has a bad reputation where he lives.

    Richard I sent you a private message.

    Shooting Coach --I travel out of state and do not have a bad reputation where I live- in fact I have an excellent reputation coast to coast and border to border--

    Phil- I agree, you have a reputation all over the USA.

    fikey- Most of us started out wrong. We hung around a trap club, listened to a lot of advice, much of which was wrong, and shot many years developing bad habits. Frank Little said many times that he would rather coach a new shooter than one who has been shooting for many years. He said this to me during one of our informal lessons. I showed Frank hoe to do many things wrong and he taught me how to do a couple of things right.

    Shooting Coach, I know that Phil is loved in Cheyenne, Harlan is in Tribune, Leo is loved in New London area these fellas are also highly respected where they love. Thus Iam having trouble believing your statement quote "If a Trainer has to travel out of state to do training, there is a fair chance he has a bad reputation where he lives."
