                                                      Welcome to the West London Shooting School, the
                                                      home of shooting tuition and gun-fitting since 1901.
                                                      I was lucky enough to have been brought up in the
                                                      fine traditions of the countryside and with game and
                                                      clay shooting. At WLSS, we seek to continue these
                                                      traditions and values that my grandfather began so
                                                      long ago. Why are we still here today? The team seek
                                                      to offer you the best in terms of personal service and
                                                      attention to detail. This is what has brought
                                                      generations of clients back and I am sure will
                                                      continue to do so in the future.
                                                      In addition to our teaching facilities, we also offer an
