Do you have your own land suitable for some clay pigeon shooting? Fancy having a family and friends BBQ, birthday party, (age 9 to 90), anniversary party, shotgun wedding, stag/hen party or whatever occasion with a difference? Want some private lessons for your family and/or friends?

We can come to you, supply everything needed for the shooting side, and quote you a sensible and very reasonable price for a great day/weekend.

We do need some notice for these events as they take a bit of planning, usually around 8 weeks as we may need to secure the relevant paperwork from the firearms department which is not difficult, but we need to comply with the law to keep it right. We sort all that out so nothing for you to do there or any charge. Once we have the relevant paperwork, it lasts for 12 months so any further events/lessons need less notice.

We have done many of these events/private lessons on people’s own land and they always work extremely well, especially where the majority or all taking part are novices, people love it as it is very different from the usual activities. People surprise themselves and have a good laugh, it is very sociable! It is also a good bonding exercise. Be warned though, shooting is very sociable and highly addictive! We can, and do, take people from complete novices to safe and competent shots on their own land, including men, ladies and youngsters. We can also come to you if experienced game Guns require some coaching on grouse, partridge and pheasant driven targets, always a very popular option.

If not sure as to whether your land is suitable, just ask us and we’ll have a look on Google Earth firstly, then take it from there, with you making the decisions all the way. We take great pride in what we do and will go out of our way to make sure you enjoy your event, we are pretty laid back and easy to work with, being country folk ourselves, through and through.

Please note this service is really only for private events, we don’t put on clay shooting competitions* as such, but can incorporate a small competition at the end of our days to finish on a fun note which is always extremely popular. If interested, please have a chat and give us a ring on 01670 774380, we are based at Scots Gap in Northumberland, or drop us an email at northumberlandsportingclays@yahoo.com

*We can advise re clay shooting competitions and have contacts who can accommodate these.
