Junior Shooting Experiences

 

These sessions are designed for the younger shooters (8-14) who might feel a little intimidated when in a larger group. The ratio of shooters to instructors is smaller and the pace is a little slower allowing the younger shots more time to feel relaxed and build confidence with the task at hand. The whole session is more individual and moves at a pace comfortable to the shooter.

 

 

 

A variety of fun targets and rifles are available to make the experience exciting, instructive and memorable.

What to Expect

 

Arrival/Duration:

 

Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of the experience as there are a few paperwork formalities that need to addressed before the start. An experience can last approximately an hour and a half and the time allotted for sessions is 2 hours, however if the experience finishes with time to spare there will be an opportunity to purchase further ammunition and to have further practice on the target range. If you are running late or are struggling to find the venue please call the mobile number listed on the contact page and let us know as soon as possible.

 

What to wear:

 

This is an outside event and will take place whatever the weather, safety permitting. Expect to be on the range for the whole time so bring clothing and footwear suitable for the English weather. There will be cover from the rain for those not shooting.

 

What is provided?

 

We provide the firearms and ammunition suitable for junior shooters aged 8-14. All safety equipment such as hearing and eye protection for participants is also provided. If heavy rain is expected the firing points will be covered but if the wind or weather get too bad other arrangements may need to be made. Please be aware of the weather forecast on the day and dress appropriately for being outside.

 

Will it hurt?

 

No. The rifles fire a small bullet with minimal recoil, using the correct method you will be shown will ensure that even the most delicate person is not hurt by this. The hearing protection is provided and is mandatory when the shooting of un-moderated (silenced) firearms is taking place, eye protection is also provided and is mandatory for shooters and spectators when any shooting is taking place at reactive targets.

 

What targets will I be shooting?

 

We offer a range of targetry to give a fun and balanced experience.
A variety of fun targets are available to make the experience exciting, instructive and memorable.

 

Age limits?

 

This experience has been specially designed for a younger audience aged 8-14.

 

Can I bring friends and family?

 

Parking is limited as is space on the ranges at the venues we use but a few spectators are allowed to stand behind the range in the safety areas. Hearing protection is not mandatory for spectators but safety glasses are, and spectators will have to provide their own.

 

Are there any other limitations or restrictions?

 

Shooting is a fun and inclusive sport. Young, old, male, female and those less able can compete on an equal footing in many shooting disciplines. Most disabilities are not a hindrance to shooting in some form or other. If you feel you may have a problem with access or in some other way please let us know when you book and we are confident we can include you in all but the most extreme cases. The ranges are outdoors and on grass, however they are wheelchair accessible. Please note:- if it has been wet for several days before your event the ground may be soggy so bear this in mind when thinking about access for able and the less able alike.

 

FINALLY;

 

Scores can be viewed and targets taken home to display to the envious friends and family.

 

We hope you enjoy your time with us and leave us with a smile on your face and a greater appreciation for the shooting sports.
