The Sporting Guns’ range offers two types of clay pigeon shooting – English Sporting and Skeet Shooting. Sporting Guns Ltd can provide guns for clients to hire, and professional instruction on site (by appointment).
Automatic traps with 300 loads of clay are used to throw the clay pigeons consistently in the same position. Experienced members of staff are on hand to give guidance. The company is happy to cater for the needs of group events including corporate shoots.
Six different clay disciplines are available. Groups are split up according to experience. Groups are small so that each client receives personal instruction. Mini competitions can also be organised on request.
Each shooting level has its own challenges and the instructor will advise on the correct one depending on your experience:-
- The novice: Each session begins with an introduction to safe gun handling, eye dominance, gun fit and stance, followed by an initial practice exercise. Students are moved up to more challenging exercises as they learn the skills.
- Intermediary: You will shoot on one of the five main layouts, each one designed to international standards. Choose between English Skeet, Olympic Skeet, Down the Line (DTL), Automatic Ball Trap (ABT), and Compak Sporting/Sportrap.
- Experienced: Activities are as for intermediate but the targets have more difficult projectiles.
Quality Beretta shot guns, sporting guns, handguns and rifles are available for hire. Equipments provided includes jackets, caps, safety glasses and ear defenders.
Sporting Guns’ own gunsmith provides advice, repairs and maintenance. Sporting Guns Ltd has a fully equipped workshop with lathe and milling machines and can undertake all types of repairs and full gun overhauls. Repair services have a 2 year warranty.
A hot bluing service is available on site, and the company manufactures and sells blanks.
