This is a course of three lessons, run on our club shoot days. The lessons are constructed so that by the end of the third lesson you will be competent and safe enough to shoot at any clay pigeon shooting ground without supervision.
Lesson 1 - You will have a basic introduction to the gun, key safety points and clay shoot etiquette. We cover such things as how to carry a shotgun, how to place a shotgun on a gun rack and general safety matter. You will receive a 25 cartridge lesson lasting 1 hour.
Lesson 2 - As well as 25 clays of instruction, this will be your opportunity to consolidate what you learned in Lesson 1 whilst working you way through some more challenging clays such as a crossing bird.
Lesson 3 - This lesson is about applying what you have learned. Under close supervision you will complete a 25 bird round at our shooting ground over all stands. We'll still coach you on the targets but we will be ensuring that you are a competent gun who can go on to enjoy many years of safe shooting having had the right start!
