Ever wanted to Have-a-Go at clay pigeon shooting but don’t know where to start, why not try a taster session at Southdown Gun Club & Shooting School and get an insight into an exciting and addictive sport? Read our blog about why you should try clay pigeon shooting!
Located in the heart of beautiful Sussex countryside and within easy driving distance from Brighton, Horsham and Chichester, Southdown is the perfect location for a fun day out for you, friends and family. Located in the middle of several hundred acres of the Muntham Farm Estate, you’ll have access to our award-winning clay shooting range, where you will soon be busting clays!
The Have-a-Go shooting area is specifically designed to cater for people who may not have shot before, with a range of targets that will see everybody breaking clays! We can cater for groups of 1 to 100, for larger parties the typical group ratio of 6 participants to one instructor. All our shooting experiences include a qualified shooting instructor, safety briefing, all the necessary personal protective equipment, a shotgun suitable to your size and stature, light load ammunition and the targets.
In each session the group will rotate through the different shooting stands, each having a different target set to replicate wild quarry and will include high crows, fast away teal, running rabbits, to mention a few. You can keep a tally of the hits and at the end announce the “High Gun” winner.
There are several packages to choose from, the Have-a-Go sessions start at 15/25/30/50/60 clays per person, the most popular being the 30 target shoot. Typically for a group of 6 people the 25/30 clay packages takes 2 hours and the 50/60 packages 3 hours. If you want to make more of a day of it, the 50 & 60 clay packages can be split into two sessions with a break in between for refreshments in our Café.
If you want to try your hand with an automatic or pump action shotgun, we’ve a Top Gun add-on, which includes 18 or 24 shots with either a three shot semi-auto or 3 shot pump action shotgun. During the Southdown Top Gun session, you’ll be able to shoot at up to three targets in the air at the same time and really test your skills on the auto shooting range. This can be combined with a Have-A-Go session.
Spectators are more than welcome to come along, it’s a great sport to watch or why not get the camera out to take some really memorable pictures!
