Shooting lessons using clay targets and automatic traps are available to individuals and groups, with an emphasis on beginners, intermediate shooters and those wishing to improve their game shooting technique. Lessons can be held either at established shooting grounds in Northumberland, the Borders or at our own venue.
The first lesson with a novice places the emphasis on safety, correct gun handling and basic shooting etiquette. Shooting takes place on one or two straightforward targets to establish eye dominance and the basics of stance and gun hold. Subsequent lessons expand on safety, technique and differing targets. All equipment is provided with an expectation of shooting 20-25 targets in about one hour. Lessons can be shared if required. Minimum age 10-12 years.
For those with their own gun and a basic shooting ability, we offer lessons covering in depth technique, gun mount, gun fit and more challenging targets. Bad habits are also addressed as is safety and correct gun handling procedures. Specific problems can be worked on and we would expect to shoot 50 – 100 targets in about 90 minutes. Lessons can be shared if required.
Lessons are available for game shooters wishing to improve their technique in the field and targets can be presented to mimic driven pheasant, partridge or grouse. Eye dominance and gunfit are thoroughly checked and special emphasis is given to footwork, gun mount, shot selection and gun movement. Experienced clay shooters who are new to game shooting are given a comprehensive introduction to etiquette, procedure and safety. Lessons are generally 100-150 shots over 1-2 hours.
