    • " Our group was extremely lucky with the weather and our session was bathed in glorious sunshine and a light breeze to keep things cool.
      Staff on site were first class and safety was ever present but did not impact on the fun.

      Our instructor was a terrific bloke and offered encouragement at every step.

      We even got three shots each on a pump action which was a real bonus.

      Individually or as a group..... we'll be back"

    • " This was booked for a triple birthday celebration and it did not disappoint! Great easy to follow website showing locations, facilities & previous reviews throughout the country & email or telephone correspondence prior to the event to confirm the booking + payment. We went to the Otley Yorkgate gun club which overlooks Leeds/Bradford airport. The weather on the day was lovely, clear blue skies & sunshine & the hosts were great at meeting you & putting you at ease, showing you & talking you through any pointers to help you with the activity whether you are complete novice or experienced. The 3 instructors took time to help you improve/aid your shooting skills & by listening to their expert advice/knowledge, they guaranteed you hitting each clay. And for a person that has never shot a gun, got 9 out of 9! Would so go again!"

I was made to feel welcome from the outset and the tuition was friendly and effective- it had me breaking clays pretty much from the outset. A great hilltop location and there seemed to be a good mixture of experience and those new to the sport. Really enjoyed it and can't wait to give it another go soon. "

The facilities on first inspection were quite basic, but it soon became apparent that our two instructors were extremely knowledgable. Our particular instructor guided us through every step of what we had to do, and put us all at ease with the gun, despite some of us never partaking clay pigeon shooting before. We all had great fun, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue to anyone else. Make sure you arrive early and get yourself to The Royalty (the pub next door) and get yourself a steak sandwich in before your shoot."
