      • "I'm from Canada and was in England for my wedding, I wanted to celebrate with my wife's family but was unsure of our numbers. I got in contact with Mike from Big Shoot in April he gave me the quote in very short order, but I was unable to nail down the particulars until I'd reached England...a week before we were supposed to go. I ended up working with the guys over the phone and through the website to book in a time that worked perfectly for our group, we had an awesome time, learned a lot and even enjoyed some friendly competition.

      • "A holidaying in the area, our session was something different and to show my son (15) that there is more to shooting than his experience on the Xbox can offer. Our instructor, Norman, was brilliant and gave us a comprehensive safety briefing and a few pointers and tips before letting us loose on our 25 shots each. We both had a brilliant time with Normal providing us with further tips as we went along."
