I just wanted to let everyone know what a great help Ted Bonnet and AASA has been to my shooting fun. My wife and I met Ted for a CHL renewal and after the certification he asked if we would like to stay a while for some tips on better shooting. Some people left and I said to my wife that I wasn't going anywhere if a World Champion shooter was willing to spend some time with me. Well, that's how it all got started. My wife and I started shooting some IDPA matches with Ted and we both enjoyed shooting together and advancing our skills at the same time.
Ted decided to start the AASA organization and promote steel shooting and man on man competitions. It was all a bit intimidating and different at first but Ted loves teach, make everyone feel welcome while helping others build their skills. The steel matches have really helped with developing accurate shooting skills.
Since Ted got me into competitive shooting, I have advanced to Master class shooter in the IDPA organization and to Master class in the USPSA shooting sports. I have traveled to many competitions and met a lot of good people along the way. I can tell you that Ted is one of the best all. I recommend that anyone wishing to have fun in the shooting sports and develop their skills, go to Ted's matches and arrange for training with him as well. Ted is a world class shooter that will instruct you with professionalism and you will have fun as well.
