An Introduction to Dr Watson

World renowned shooting instructor Edward Watson started his shooting apprenticeship in 1989 at Pennsport Shooting School with Nick Penn as his mentor. Having honed his skills as an instructor Edward moved on to manage the Royal Berkshire Shooting School for 3 years before moving onto the West London Shooting School where he enjoyed a decade as the Managing Director, establishing the country’s oldest Shooting School as the most famous.

Edward is recognised as an authority within the shooting world as an instructor. He is an ambassador for Hull Cartridge Company and Alan Paine Clothing, a renowned game shot and a regular in The Field’s prestigious Top 50 Shots.

A true reflection of Dr Watson’s unique gift as a coach is seen in his loyal and ever-expanding client base. It is true passion and enthusiasm that has seen Edward become a truly exceptional instructor. With over 20 years experience he has become the go-to instructor for beginners through to seasoned game and clay shots. His clientele over the years has seen him teach rock stars to Royalty, including the Duke of Cambridge, Prince Harry, Guy Richie, Jamie Oliver, and Madonna.

Edward is best known for his simple, clear teaching method and prides himself on not only improving his client’s skill set, but going that extra mile in transforming them into a truly great shot. Correct gun-fit is fundamental to realising this aim as it is crucial to have the right instrument to work with. Many years of teaching experience has shown Edward that his clients gain a far greater pleasure from their sport if they excel at it, and is focused on enabling them to achieve this.

“Gun fit is one of the most important parts of becoming a great shot. You may be lucky to have been given a gun or brought a new one, regardless please get it fitted to you, only then will it become truly yours” Dr Watson

Edward runs a diary column out of two of the UK’s finest shooting schools, as well as offering instruction in the field which provides the unique opportunity to put into practice what is taught at the shooting school. There is nothing quite like the real thing and under the pressure of the day it is important to have an instructor who is able to guide you in making the most of your day and fully appreciating the birds. Edward believes this is an essential practice for beginners, who really benefit from the confidence they gain under the guidance of an expert eye, and the key to progress for experienced shots. Dr Watson Shooting Services is an essential shooting concierge service boasting a comprehensive portfolio of expert tuition and gun fitting, both in the UK and overseas.
