Wow! What an experience. First off, the actual shooting was fine. However, not everything else was. After being let into what appeared to be a (very nice) second-hand car dealers parking lot, but finding no one to greet us and nowhere to park that did not block in another vehicle, I followed a sign pointing to the “shooting range”. After hearing a voice shouting for me to stop, as I was in the middle of a gateway blocking an approaching buggy, I drove on for another few yards and stopped, awaiting instructions from whoever was shouting at me. This appeared to be from the owner of the site who proceeded to rant and rave at me for a few minutes, issuing threats of expulsion from the site with no refund, for non-compliance with site rules, vehicle access etc. and who then continued his tirade of threats of expulsion to my generous passenger (and host) who apologised and tried to explain our side of the situation, as did I. After giving several apologies for my minor misdemeanour I asked if we could move on, but the guy again threatened us with expulsion if any single instruction given by the buggy driver – our tutor for the morning – was failed to be complied with by either one of us. As we drove up to the shooting range, my friend, an Ambulance Technician (Paramedic) of 30+ years’ experience said “Heart attack, it’s just a matter of time for him. We regularly pick up people just like him”. I think this guy needs to get on an anger management program ASAP, because if he doesn’t, then I feel it will only be a matter of time if he was to abuse a fee-paying customer who is either younger, fitter or less compliant than me who will punch his lights out. The way we felt beginning our shooting experience after this episode took a lot of the shine off what was quite a nice day. What a way to treat people who are actually paying some of your wages. Bloody disgraceful, you ought to be ashamed of yourself. John Marks

Really great morning shooting, the instructors were lovely and helped a lot and gradually our shooting improved towards the end of the morning. Would come back again.

Was treated to a taster session for my birthday, this is a minimum of 2 people. Booking could have been a bit easier and the entrance is slightly concealed - had driven past plenty of times without even knowing the place was there! We arrived a bit early and was taken up by buggy to the range. We was then asked some basic questions about had we ever shot before and then filled out some forms. Then it was time for fun! The instructor (owner) was very knowledgeable and patient when talking through safety instructions and the gun itself. We were then able to shoot 2 x 25 bullets on the 10m target and a further 2 x 25 on the 50m target. As there was 2 of us there was a small competitive edge and a few challenges thrown in. We were able to take the targets home to see how we had done. A really enjoyable way to spend an hour and would definitely like to do it again.
