      • "We decided to have our annual Christmas outing with a little difference this year - rather than sit in a bar and talk business. This was a huge success. Every one of our guests and the directors enjoyed every minute of the shoot. The setting was lovely and the competition was fierce. Fantastic instructors who let us get on with things with the right amount of guidance. We are already thinking about dates to return in the New Year."

    "As part of a girly weekend, we went clay pigeon shooting at The Big Shoot in Eccles on Sat 24th March. The booking process was simple and straightforward, the staff on arrival were very friendly and helpful and our tutor (Huey?) was an absolute star. A great tutor, very patient and gave us lots of encouragement. The set up at at Eccles was excellent and we all had a really fabulous time. We would highly recommend a visit. Thank you!"
