Target Shooting

We take shooting seriously and give professional coaching and advice to 12 years old up. (Our coaches combined have over 100 years experience and shoot at the world renowned National Rifle Association’s HQ, Bisley in Surrey). You will be able to use some of a variety of compressed gas weapons, which include famous makes, BSA, Hatsan, LoGun,Webley and Weihrauch, fitted with open (iron) and telescopic sights. We have recently acquired some lighter air rifles and aids for the use of younger people. When inquiring please tell us if you have previous experience as that will help determine the weapons we bring. Initially we shoot at several standard paper targets, 5 rounds at a time, and with the option of different rifles. Your coach will be advising and making suggestions the meanwhile. Some mechanical targets can be introduced for more fun. You’re encouraged to take your targets home as souvenirs (the good ones anyway).
