      • "My partner and I had the best first experience at clay pigeon shooting at Normanton shooting ground. Mick was our instructor and was so patient with us as we built up our confidence with using the guns. He explained all the steps involved and how we could improve our aim. The thrill of firing the gun and hitting the clay pigeons on target is something else. Everyone we met at the ground was so lovely and friendly, there was a real community feel, I will for sure visit again! Thanks for a lovely experience Mick! "
