I had a great day yesterday with Nobby who is real professional with firearms and with tons of skills. We had a great experience with different weapon systems and know how to operate safely and shoot accurately. It was great pleasure been instructed by Nobby and definitely will book further courses.

Fantastic training course, Mark is the real deal and his years and wealth of experience make it a privilege and honour to train with him. Content, material and instruction are superlative. I would highly recommend if you are looking to train with the best train with Mark. To share Mark's knowledge and expertise in a structured environment is certainly a key factor in developing critical shooting skills.

Bespoke Firearms Experience What can I say.... Mark 'Nobby' Knowles is one of the most genuine guys I have had the pleasure to meet. Upon first meeting he was friendly and down to earth, he made me feel very welcome and relaxed. His knowledge and experience is outstanding and the way he presents the training is fantastic, he makes you feel comfortable and is thorough in getting the information across at your own speed. I had to go through various stages of the training a couple of times, Nobby talked me through these stages at all times until I was able to carry them out by myself. Never once did I feel like I was under pressure whilst he was training me. To sum up... I would highly recommend Mark ' Nobby ' Knowles to anyone (Experienced or Novice) who would like to be trained in firearms he really is a very knowledgeable, experienced and true professional at the top of his game. I am already looking at my next course with ' Shooting Training Solutions '! Thanks Nobby, be seeing you soon..

Course was extremely well designed and delivered - building knowledge and skills in a challenging way but achievable. Mark's expertise combined with his ability to tailor a course to his audience is invaluable. Excellent value for money.

Having trained in Poland I thought I knew how to handle a firearm. The disappointment in Mark's face as to how I was taught was priceless. This course teaches you the art and the science, without this course a stoppage on the battlefield could be life threatening. I highly recommend to anyone wishing to further their weapons knowledge be it for pleasure or CP purposes. 5 stars all the way!!

I have been attending this course for a number of years, and with good reason. Mark 'Nobbie' Knowles does what it says on the tin ! A professional instructor with knowledge throughout the Security/Maritime industry with a wealth of Military and operational experience. Mark has created a great course environment with only a small group, this really feels like one to one tuition. The weapon drills and the sequence taught soon makes sense and you will notice even in a short period of time that everything carried out becomes slick and second nature. This course and any other Shooting Training Solutions course you maybe thinking of attending is a must ! Been a pleasure once again, and see you on the next course. A + J.K

An excellent course for all MSO's and others involoved in the security industry in hostile environments. The instruction, facilities, content of course met the high professional standards one would expect from Mark. I will be making an annual pilgrimage to Shooting Training Solution in Sherborn. Mike

Having never experienced anything like this before I was given the opportunity to take part in this course and I can honestly say I'm very glad I did, my initial nerves and reservations were soon expelled knowing I was in the hands of a highly experienced and knowledgeable tutor. Wanting to come away from the day with a slight insight into what forces personnel deal with on a daily basis, I had a glimpse of exactly that, it really was a brilliant day even down the the refreshments on offer. I can't thank Mark enough for the experience and will 100% be back again.

Mark is proving to be our preferred choice for all things firearms. Many are already aware of his quality & his background, but coupled with his professionalism is a very decent nature indeed. Mark will put you at ease, take an interest in your needs, & deliver a programme that caters for it soundly. It is pleasantly intense at times as there is much to learn, but there is no room for error where firearms are concerned. STS are excellent, the standards really are second to none. I would also like to add that the company & its processes are well oiled! Mark will make sure the relevant information is with you in timely fashion, & the follow-up documentation is with you no less efficiently..............something that our organisation has found lacking with some other service providers in this sector! STS are top quality & this course deeply insightful.

I really needed a few days away for myself. I had been to the day experience and thoroughly enjoyed it and thought, hell with it, lets try the European Experience so I gave Mark a call and he arranged all the rest. Every element of the course was carefully planned and organised by Mark which included Flights, Airport pick up, drop off, Accommodation, Excellent Food and One-2-One Training. Mark was the perfect host and made every effort to make you feel like a real V.I.P. The training was held in the south of France in a well equipped range run by a very friendly couple .They made every effort to make you feel welcome and accommodate to ones needs. The training was second to none ; Marks experience in teaching is quickly and clearly evident .The structured and methodical principles created a safe environment while developing my confidence and knowledge of the weapon systems. The accommodation was fantastic , clean, spacious and quite. Everything was catered for even my eating requirements. This trip was paradoxical, relaxing, calming, exhilarating, edge of your seat stuff but most of all enjoyable. Mark is a very friendly, down to earth guy and I thoroughly enjoyed his company .He is patient with his teaching and modest about his experience. I can not recommend this trip enough ,if you are looking for something special then this is it . Counting down the days till my next trip.

The two days of training with Nobby Knowles although it was quite intense, was very enjoyable. Nobbys experience and method of training was second to none. The emphasis was on safety and competency. Nobby was precise, clear in his instruction and helped me to improve my performance on the range. The course culminated in an intense session on the range. I felt safe at all times under Nobbys supervision and using the weapon systems under hostile conditions definitely took me out of my comfort zone. I am very pleased with the two days and would highly recommend STS Ltd to anyone wishing to have either an introduction to firearms or a more in depth experience. Competency and safety are paramount to Nobby who ensures you understand fully before moving on to the next stages. Highly recommended. I will be returning for further training with Nobby at STS Ltd.

I am 16 and took this course to expand my knowledge on firearms and to avoid the start of any bad habits which it definitely helped with. The course taught me safe handling of firearms and I also had a great time. My instructor, Mark Knowles made this very enjoyable and the way we were taught showed me how to look forward and ahead in my movements and how to catch any mistakes before I actually make them with a firearm

This course delivered exactly what we wanted, a detailed introduction from a military standpoint on how to safely handle firearms from someone with a strong military back round. The class room based work was definitely what we needed and was taught in such a way that it will not be easily forgotten. The real icing on the cake was being taught by Mark Knowles himself. We left feeling safe, confident and more than a little bit privileged.

Shooting Training Solutions Limited came highly recommended to me via a credible source plus 2 military guys had just done the course and were raving about it. So I was 100% satisfied with my choice before I started the course. Mark is without any doubt one of the best disciplined instructors I have ever had the privilege and honour to meet. His knowledge skill experience.. i'm just lost for words really. When you experience the course or meet Mark you will understand. Safe Safe Safe ... Cock Lock Safe.. NSPs Function tests TOETS critical elements of safe weapon handling. There are no second chances, get it right first time. I was very pleased with my results with AK47 / M16 /M4, I didn't just give it 100%, I gave it everything. I was proud to have completed the course successfully. I will return without any doubt.

I found the course to be thorough and perfectly pitched to my level of competency. Mark is able to instinctively know how much to test you in a constructive way so as to bring out the best in you whilst at the same time enabling you to recognise any deficiencies in your practice and correct them. Perseverence is always rewarded. You really wont get any better or well informed teaching than this. Mark draws upon personal experience in a variety of adverse situations to reinforce the value of his practice. As well as being an amazing instructor his organisational and culinary skills are superb. Accomodation in a quiet local village was absolutely perfect. I'm definitely coming back for more.
