This is my 3rd time with mark and it doesn't get much better ! A high level of instruction that you would be hard to find anywhere else in my opinion . You send emails , texts and you'll get a rapid response from him and when you complete the course you'll get the same aftercare , very efficient . Highly recommend !! Thanks again .

Very good course. Good facilities with a wide range of weapons used and plenty of time and tuition on each weapon. Mark runs the course in a relaxed but professional manner, his knowledge and experience is evident throughout. Overall a very good refresher course, the day is well structured and enjoyable.

I had no real firearms experience prior to booking on this course. I've only ever fired a pistol at a range in Thailand and done some clay pigeon shooting. With this in mind Mark structured the course to suit me and my lack of experience. Mark’s professionalism and knowledge was top notch. His friendly but firm attitude helped me to relax (a little bit) during all the strenuous drills. I’ve learnt so many new skills which I’m looking forward to putting into practise at my local shooting club, which I’ve recently joined. This course will help with your safety principles, knowledge of different weapons, Marksmanship principles and confidence. This is a demanding course that is both mentally and physically tough but it’s very rewarding. I will definitely be looking at booking on another course with Mark again in the future.

I was delighted with the progress made on this superb course. Five weapon systems in 2 days. Mark's universal approach to drills on a wide variety of different weapons makes for easy learning and developing confidence. Many thanks for your faultless professionalism Mark. Aiming to be considered for the ultimate SF firearms experience with Mark in due course.

Following a lot of research prior to signing up for a firearms 2 day competency course, I am very pleased that we made the right choice with the shooting training solutions team. Mark had extensive knowledge and experience with the handling and use of a firearms; as well as the ability to teach this to others. I would highly recommend this company for any firearm competency course.

Just another brilliant day in the class and on the range with Mark. This was my third session and I just can't rate him enough - undoubtedly the best firearms training you will get outside the military (probably inside too) .

Mark is professional but friendly, approachable and patient with a wealth of combat experience which is quite frankly humbling. His knowledge of firearms is extensive, as you would expect from someone with his service record. If you want the best, contact mark at shooting training solutions, he will ensure you come away from the course with the knowledge you require

Mark (Nobby) knowls runs an excellent course. He takes you through all the relevant weapon systems quickly and easily in a way that is simple to remember. you will gain confidence and improve your skills and; above all safe handling skills a great deal through the day. The live firing session is very good. it is not full bore but it does not matter, you are learning skills and safe handling it matters not how big the rounds you are firing are. Having training from Nobby (Ex SF) is a great deal better than having instruction from a CivI Game/Competition shooter. A good course and gets the job done to the highest standard. It is not an attendance course Pass/Fail applies.

The ultimate special forces firearms experience is a must for anyone looking to gain indepth and detailed knowledge of both full bore 5.56, 7.62 and 9mm weapons handling. The course is overseen by Mark who is both patient and comprehensive, and draws on decades of special forces experience to ensure that every detail is covered. The range is equipped with modern, well maintained weapons systems and excellent facilities to ensure that the experience is of the highest order. I can't recommend this course enough and I'm looking forward to booking another course with Mark in the near future to ensure my skill set continues to evolve.

Thoroughly enjoyed the days training. I am very much a beginner and Mark was easily able to tailor the day accordingly whilst still imparting staggering amounts of relevant technique and information. A true professional with an astonishing depth of knowledge, all delivered in a calm, engaging and patient manner.

A great course delivered with professionalism and excellent knowledge. The pace of the course was very good and I felt that I could ask questions as the course progressed. For anybody looking at a firearms competency course, this is the one I will be returning to!

Mark is a first class tutor. He is the consummate professional - focussed, relaxed, patient and clear in his delivery, he knows how to get the very best out of his students and inspire them along the way. The course balance between theory, practical demonstration and hands on range time was spot on. After two intensive days I came away with a thorough grounding in several new weapon systems. I could not recommend Mark more highly.
