Stuart started shooting at the age of 14, being the youngest of four shooters in his family. He can be found most weekends shooting at Altcar ranges on the Formby coast. Stuart proudly shoots for the county of Lancaster of which one day hopes to be captain. Stuart’s greatest shooting achievements to date include: shooting for England in the National match twice; finishing in the top ten of the Bisley Grand Agg.; being part of the Commonwealth Games Development Squad and being appointed Vice Captain of the U25 team to Australia for the World Championships in 2011. This will be Stuart’s 3rd tour to Bloemfontein, having previously toured twice with the GB U19 team. He loved these visits so much he cannot keep away. He has also toured on the 2007 NRA Channel Islands team, and hopes to continue touring on a regular basis. Away from the range, Stuart works as a joiner covering the Cheshire area whilst living in Manchester. He hopes to put his cabinet making qualifications to better use one day creating and restoring hand-made furniture and maybe even a few rifle stocks!
