OPS Shooting School

"Gil and Vicki Ash have helped me become a better shot. More important, they have helped me enjoy shooting more"
.Phil Bourjaily, Editor of Field & Stream Magazine

"I was lucky. My travels took me near Mitchell’s Clay Target Sports near Brooks, Oregon last spring - - just in time to talk my way into an OSP shotgun class. Gil and Vicki Ash hardly ever miss, and I wanted to shoot like that! Those two days put me on the track to better shotgunning - - and they were great fun! Clay targets hide when OSP comes to town!"
Wayne Van Zwoll
