While our staff can help you with safety, equipment, basic instruction, learning the sport and how to start breaking clays and having fun, we are not certified instructors. 


At Iron Mountain, we firmly believe that expert instruction is invaluable and recommend using a certified instructor. If you would like top-level certified assistance please contact the instructor directly. He will make all the arrangements for your visit to Iron Mountain Clays.

Shady Cove Shooting School was founded by Jon Parrish, a National Sporting Clays Association Certified Level II instructor, and a Master Class competitor. In a safe and stress-free manner, Jon provides a particularly gratifying and entertaining experience for shooters of all skill levels.


Jon’s instruction greatly accelerates the learning process by providing step-by-step instructions that are easy to understand and implement. There is simply no substitute for learning these fundamentals.


Jon can help simplify your strategies and technique. This usually involves learning to streamline your current pre-shot routine not adding to it. This is where having an experienced eye will help.


In the world of competitive shooting where the difference between winning or losing the tournament is usually one or two targets, mental management is a critical component to success.
