Introduction to Clay Shooting for Two
Riseley, Bedfordshire:: With a fully loaded shotgun pulled tight to your shoulder, the wafting smell of gunpowder in the air and the clay in your sights, you and a friend will learn the basics of shooting with a fully qualified instructor. At one of the largest shooting clubs in the country you will receive private instruction and a large number of shots in your combined time slot. Within minutes even the most modest beginner will be picking off clays left, right and centre with the precision of a sharp shooter. Tea and coffee is provided on the day, and there are full restaurant facilities in the clubhouse where you can enjoy a full meal or a refreshing pint (after the action of course!) payable on the day. Happy hunting! Availability: Operates every day of the week including bank holidays. Closed Christmas, Boxing and New Year's Days. Weather: This experience will run in almost any weather conditions.
