FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

IS CLAY SHOOTING SAFE?
All participants will be shooting in a cage, which limits the movement of the firearm, with an instructor by their side. Furthermore, our instructors are the only authorized people to handle the ammunition, during your session they will load and unload the firearms. We also provide safety glasses an ear protection.

In addition to focus on the importance of safety at the range, we aim for participants to leave our sessions with a significant understanding of safety and responsible firearm handling. We are proud to say that we have been accident free since we started operating in 2007.

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM/MAXIMUM NUMBER OF PARTICIPANTS FOR AN EVENT?
There is no minimum participant numbers, however a minimum fee applies to each shooting package.  We offer a variety of packages for individuals and all group sizes.  We can help you select the best package for you based on your requirements and group size.
