On arrival at any shooting range you will be given a welcome drink and if you are lucky a few biscuits. Then a full safety briefing is carried out and gun familiarisation. Once you are all kitted out with your gear and your gun it is off out to the shooting stands. All venues have a variety of stands, which means that the clays are going to be coming out and up into the air at different angles and speeds. This variety imitates real game shooting angles and there are even hopping clays (rabbits) so the challenges are real. Shooting instructors take pride in a boast that no one leaves their fist session before they shoot a clay out of the sky and they invariably succeed. It is so exciting when the first clay bursts into a thousand pieces above your head and can be a very addictive pastime.
