IS CLAY SHOOTING SAFE?
All participants will be shooting in a cage, which limits the movement of the firearm, with an instructor by their side. Furthermore, only our instructors will be handling the ammunition during your session. During your session they will load and unload the firearms. We also provide safety glasses an ear protection.

In addition to focus on the importance of safety at the range, we aim for participants to leave our sessions with a significant understanding of safety and responsible firearm handling. We are proud to say that we have been accident free since we started operating in 2007.
