Bill McGuire is a two-time sporting clay world champ.

He’s also the nicest sporting clay world champ.

Bill just returned from Worlds in England, where he came in second out of about 800 shooters.

Mike Lang, the H-T’s photo director, and I joined Bill at the Ancient Oak Gun Club Thursday, while he taught individual lessons and offered us some tips.

Dan Donaldson, drove down from Tampa for an hour’s lesson with Bill.

“He’s a world-class shooter but he’s also a great teacher,” Donaldson said. “He’s the best.”

Individual lessons with Bill run around $150, but every shooter who’s taken a lesson with him say it was the best money they’ve ever spent.

Enjoy!
