Private Shooting Lessons

What you need to know & bring with you.
For your best enjoyment please wear suitable clothing for the time of year, you will be outdoors, away from any shelter for the duration of your lesson, so shower proof clothing & waterproof foot wear, etc are all essential. We recommend a hat or cap, to both shield your head from bits of the broken targets & to keep the sun from your eyes. Loose upper body clothing is not advised due to getting caught on the gun, when putting in to your shoulder. Please note that we don’t cancel for a little rain!

What Age can juniors learn to shoot with us?
There is no legal minimum age, to shoot under one to one supervision, however we consider that to be safe in holding the gun securely, & to get the most from the lesson without getting tired holding a heavy gun, a “Big” twelve year old or an “Average” size fourteen year old should be fine with the gun & lesson sizes we offer. Please get in touch if you are unsure, or want more advise.
