My instructor, Justin, was helpful, funny, informative and allowed me to show that I could shoot. He let my wife have her first go and accomodated a 20bore so it didn't hurt and she did really well. I would recommend anyone, being a beginner or an experienced shooter, to take up this experience. I can guarentee you will have a fantastic time.

        P.S. Cheers Justin for a fantastic time. Cheers mate."

Relaxed and fun atmosphere keeps everyone calm and time flies between individual sessions. Even those of us with zero experience hit the first few clays and scores for the day averaged 50 - 80% hit rate. Our parties ages ranged from 15 - 58 and all had a great time. Recommended. "
