Dear Mike:

Thank you for your help in getting Ian back on track!

I shot in a sporting clay outing in October of 2019. I shot 38/100. I was a little embarrassed regarding my performance, so looked into lessons.

Found Mike online and did three lessons with him in November of 2019.

I didn’t shoot again until the same event in October of 2020. I shot 77/100!!! I doubled my score from just THREE lessons with Mike.

He is great to work with, very communicative, and willing to help with gear/gun/ammo guidance. I highly recommend working with Mike!

Mike is the most patient, understanding and helpful instructors I have ever met. He is great working with youth and adults. His calm demeanor and attitude has greatly helped me increase my skills.

I would recommend Upward Spiral to all – it is worth travelling to have Mike instruct you.

Great coaching session today. Still have a big grin on my face from all the clays that broke and shooting my old pal! That was a real treat for me and sentimental too.

Morning Mike,

Thanks again for all your time and valuable instruction (and going beyond 4 hours of actual instruction)! Also for your patience, not only in instructing, but dealing with my crazy schedule! Excellent service.



Very nice web site. I can certainly attest to the effectiveness of the program!!!!


The first question I remember Mike asking went something along the lines of whether I wanted suggestions or for him to assume I needed to start from scratch. What a great approach. We settled into a combination of both.

We had good discussions about shooting theory, best practices, approaching competition, reloading shells and just the love of the game. My score improved, I won my first trophy and best of all, I made a friend.

Thanks Mike!
