I have very little or no experience shooting, is tuition available?

Tuition is available for an additional fee of £5 per person/visitor, (supervising adults who are not shooting are not included, and do not have any charges/fees).

Tuition includes an introduction to shooting and gun safety. We always tailor tuition to your individual level of experience and ability. A range officer will stay with you as long as you need, to make sure you are shooting safely, and are getting the most out of your experience by hitting those targets!

Tuition is available for complete beginners, and also those wanting to get back into the sport or enhance their shooting skills and knowledge. You can hire rifles from us or bring your own.

After your tuition is finished and you are confident to shoot on your own, we are still always on hand to aid if you need us.

*Tuition MUST be booked in advance over the phone during open hours.

*Tuition is mandatory when there is a minor and the supervising adult is not an experienced shooter. 

Is ID required?

*Minors are not expected to have ID. 

*Passports, Driving Licences & FAC's are accepted.

Please be aware that work passes, bus passes etc. are not accepted as valid forms of identification as they do not provide the information required and they are not official documents. If you do not have a photo Driving Licence or Passport, please contact us to arrange alternative ID.

How old does someone have to be to come to the range?

*Anyone under 18 must be accompanied by a suitable adult over 21 who will be responsible for supervising them at all times.

*Please be aware that if someone is too young to shoot it also means unfortunately they cannot remain on the range as a spectator.

Children must be at least 8 years old to shoot on the range. Please be aware that even if children are aged 8 or older, if they do not meet the criteria below, if we feel that they may not be able to shoot safely, we will not be able to allow them to shoot.

We require anyone shooting at the range to be able to physically handle their gun without assistance, to be able to reach the bench, to be aware of the need for attention to safety, and to be able to understand and follow the rules of the range at all times. They must not behave in a manner that could be distracting to other shooters.

We welcome and encourage younger shooters but ask anyone considering bringing a child to be sensible and practical when considering age and ability. If they do not meet the criteria above, we will not be able to allow them to shoot.

*We reserve the right to refuse entry or ask someone to leave, as the safety of our shooters is of paramount importance to us.
