Jim Tooker briefly introduces us to the HomeSafety Academy ShotGun
We have all, at times, wondered why the clay didn’t break. You are now learning about a product that can and will show you exactly where your shot-string (shot pattern) was in relationship to the clay. Look closely at the picture below and see how our simulator takes the guess work out of every shot. When you miss, you will know exactly where you missed.
You will See and Receive Details
After Every Shot
In the lower left corner of the screen you are given five facts about your last shot.

Ø Due to the sensitively of the electronics and the computers used, from time to time it is necessary to shutdown the simulator for recalerbration. Although most of this service is planned after hours, there can be situations where recalerbration has to be done during business hours. HomeSafety Academy will make every effort to accommodate annual members but will not be financially responsible for any non-uses hourly lost. Unused hours per month cannot rollover.

PAYS for your ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP!
can’t thank you enough for your time and efforts to help me get certified as an NRA instructor. I really enjoyed myself and I will be looking for a shotgun, with your help. I think the shotgun I used today is one that I think would be a great selection.
Let’s go out again,
Just wanted to drop you a quick note to thank you for today’s class. It was a great experience for me, and I appreciate your time and patience, you made me feel very comfortable. Hopefully we’ll get together again soon to do some shooting.

World’s Most Expensive Shotguns
The shotgun is a flexible weapon, with uses ranging from sporting to military applications. To shotgun aficionados, however, only the best matter—and “best” takes on a particular meaning in the world of shotguns.
A “best gun” is a double-barreled shotgun made with all the care and precision of a work of art. The cream of the crop is the London best—a shotgun made by premier gun makers of London such as Boss & Co., Holland & Holland or J. Purdey & Sons.
In 2008, Christie’s held their Exceptional and Fine Sporting Guns and Rifles sale in London. The highlight of the event was a pair of gold-inlaid 12-bore shotguns by J. Purdey & Sons. Gunsmith Ken Hunt was inspired by the Royal Armouries in the Tower of London. These shotguns are particularly notable for the profusion of gold used in their making and are displayed in an exquisite oak and leather case.
Valued at $320,000 to $400,000, it’s safe to say these fantastic firearms are the most expensive shotguns in the world.
