What is clay pigeon shooting?
Clay pigeon shooting involves clay circular targets, known as clay pigeons being catapulted into the air to imitate pigeons, or shot along the ground, to imitate rabbits, by ‘traps’, small machines that propel the clays at speed. Competitors then attempt to shoot the clays pigeons using shotguns. This is a great group activity.
What will I be doing during the clay pigeon shooting session in Wales?
During your clay pigeon shooting session in Wales you’ll be given expert tuition and lessons on how to handle and fire shotguns and also how to improve your clay shooting technique in order to maximise the number of clay pigeons you shoot.
