One Hour Shooting Session

Air Pistol and Paper Target

This 60 minute event is suitable for groups of 2+ people of all ages from 10 years and over and is especially well suited for corporate groups, birthday parties, stag / hen events and family groups.

The activity initially involves learning to shoot gas powered pistols on traditional paper targets over a 6 metre distance. This is a great way to learn the principles of shooting.

The session then moves on to using gas powered rifles equipped with telescopic sights. Metal 'knockdown' targets are used with the rifles over a longer range (typically 10 - 30 metres).

A speed competition at the end of the event utilises our purpose made 'duck shoot' -you need to knock down six ducks in the shortest time possible.
