The Country Gentleman Gun Fitting Shop is a
"full-service" shop, dedicated to the needs of shotgunners.

35 years experience and 1000 fitting sessions per year have taught us how to deliver one of the finest experiences available regarding gun fit and shooting form instruction. Most of our work is done on location from two mobile workshops at clay target shoots across the country. The remainder of our work is done at home or at gunfitting clinics and seminars that are delivered at gun clubs from private bookings. Mail in work is always welcome.

We understand that an ill-fitting gun generates poor shooting form and how poor form and fit affects your ability to learn and perform well. That is why we pay so much attention to balance, vision, and gun mount before the fitting session begins. Without a consistent approach to the gun, a consistent approach to the target is impossible to learn.

When I first visited The country Gentleman Gun Fitting Shop, my scores were inconsistent. Two months after my fitting session, I won six events at the Missouri State Trap Shoot and became State Handicap Champion. Since then, I've won many events to become a two-time All American. Each year, Country Gentleman is there to help me whenever I need it. I trust their judgment and highly recommend their services.

Jerry and Todd are true professionals and are two of the nicest gentlemen I know. They take the time necessary to fit and customize your gun to your specific needs. I personally thank them for all their work with me throughout my shooting career.

The Country Gentleman Shop doesn't miss a trick when it comes to gunfitting and shooting form instruction. They will dissect your form and gun mount, troubleshoot problem areas, and give you the best gunfit achievable. Their experience is this field saves shooters lots of time and frustration. They clearly offer the best bang for the buck in clay target sports.

After my first fitting session with Todd, I climbed from B Class to AAA Class in just a few months. He took one look at me, told me what I was doing wrong and showed me how to fine tune my gun mount and shooting form and topped that with a great gunfit. I trusted his word and his work quality.

There are few "gun fitters" who care as much about improving shooter's scores. Todd's genuine appreciation for the sport and for the people who shoot it are the reasons why I so highly recommend him to all my students. He is a one of a kind!
