ABOUT THE SEATED GUN
Over my shooting life I have met, mentored and introduced a great number of individuals to clay and game shooting. I have to say with Jean-Paul, his natural ability to shoot is outstanding, place him in the field on a driven day and you will soon see birds falling. Notwithstanding his mobility issues I have no doubt in his ability to easily equal and exceed the skills shown by many a seasoned and polished game shot. Simply put, He’s not the gun to be next too on a drive……. believe me I have experienced his ability firsthand.
Mr Geoff Bryant – Chief Shooting Instructor – Sywell Shooting Club
I first met Jean-Paul at my local shoot in Suffolk, from the moment he was introduced to our group it was evident that he was a straight forward talking guy who says it how it is and the wheelchair was seen as no more than a mere inconvenience. That was most definitely the case in the field too, where he “wiped most of our eyes more than once”. The information and detail he possesses regarding shoots and which ones to book is like having a talking guide book at your side! Bloody brilliant!

There were of course reservations as to how we could handle a gun in a wheelchair. Following Jean-Paul’s visits, three seasons later and we now look after lots of guns in wheelchairs. Jean-Paul is a very accomplished shot and it is a pleasure to be in his company. He has also been part of some our most memorable shoot days.
Mr Graham Tweed - Shoot Captain at Hargham Managing Director - Richmond Sporting
Having known Jean-Paul for a number of years and had the pleasure of joining him on a regular basis at Ripley Castle, I would like to say although confined to a chair, I was surprised and impressed as to his shooting ability and to hold his own. Any gun, moreover a disabled gun could do far worse than contact him for any advice or recommendations as he has overcome and solved most problems that arise.
