Andrew Venables, owner of WMS Firearms Training, is one of the UK’s best-respected rifle shooting instructors and the first non-German member of the Blaser Academy, set up to empower rifle shooters to become the best shots they can be. He started shooting when he was eight years old and as an adult began working in pest control. He then moved into wildlife management for NGOs, zoos and wildlife parks, started training their staff and moved on train police rifle instructors and officers for large mammal despatch duties.
