Ready, aim, fire
I recently joined friends at Belmont Rifle Range for a morning of learning to shoot.

The gentlemen who ran the classes were delightful and able to cater to our slightly creaky bodies by giving us a table rather than us having to lie on the ground like snipers!

The rest of the group lay on mats.

There are 3 activities - all slightly different targets to shoot at - were much easier than I'd anticipated. Although there is quite a lot of waiting - taking turns and waiting for each other for safety reasons, it was so much fun.

Easier than you'd think

The rifles used are small and quiet, so you don't need ear protection and there is no recoil into your shoulder.

My target.

If you enjoy it, you can continue on to other classes or you can do Shoot 4 Fun again. I want to go back at my birthday instead of having a party. It is also popular for Corporate Events.
