I was bought a “have a go voucher”

My family have always shot and my Great Uncle has been a gamekeeper all his working life, he was even the head Gamekeeper at Harewood House. I always remember growing up being fascinated with what he did and always looked forward to the Game season as I knew when...

As soon as I picked up a gun I was in love with shooting!

I got into shooting two and half years ago through my dad and a couple friends. I have been brought up in the countryside and enjoyed so much time out with my Dad and Grandad helping on the farm, shooting and just spending time in the great outdoors. As soon as I...

Finally found a left handed gun!

As some of you may know I have been in search of a left handed gun for a while and it is proving to be quite the challenge! However, when the hubs found a left handed gun online at Kelbrook Lodge we wasted no time in hopping up the motorway for 2 hours once I'd spoken...

How Claudia got into ladies shooting

My name is Claudia I'm very much a beginner at shooting with little experience, so I hope I can help some of you who are worried about getting involved, or not sure where to start- if you can get through to the end! Firstly a little bit of background on myself, my...

It’s now quite a family affair

Shooting was always something that my Dad would pop off to do himself, but when I was older he used to take me out to shoot rotten goose eggs off the fence posts. This was great fun; if you got the egg right in the centre, the yolk would go sky high. This was as far...

Grandad got me into shooting at 8

Hermione I first got into shooting by asking my grandad to take me he said, ‘when your 8’, I finally turned 8 and wouldn’t stop nagging him until the day we went. As soon as I picked up the gun, I fell in love with it. As I was only little, I was shooting a 4/10 and...

Shooting is a great sport to get in to!

I first got in to shooting through my Dad as shooting has always been a big part of our family. I tried a few different disciplines within shooting over the years but always came back to sporting. For me, I enjoy the difficulty of it, the variety of targets and that...

I took the plunge and entered a ladies day!

I’m very new to the shooting world - this has been my first full season and I’ve loved every second!! I first got exposed properly when I stood on peg with my partner at the end of 2018/2019 season, I came with a camera and loved taking photos of the shoot and the...

I started shooting after I found a tumour

I’m Karen and I’m relatively new to shooting, I started around 18 months ago. In Nov 2017 I discovered I had an 8cm tumour and ovarian cysts and became quite poorly and having to undergo medicines for six months to shrink the growth to make it safer for it to be...

Boyfriend introduced me to shooting

My at the time boyfriend (now husband) introduced me to shooting around 2002. We used to go out at weekends to local grounds and shoot. Nothing competitive - more for fun and a hobby we could do together. Then one Christmas he bought me a 20 bore Browning shotgun as a...

I never really had an interest in shooting

Leah I never really had an interest in shooting (let alone heard of the sport) until my Dad asked me if I wanted to go along with him to my local ground, Park Farm Shooting Ground. I had never been so scared! I was surrounded by lots of strangers using guns (bear in...

How I began shooting

I first heard about shooting when my brother was at an agricultural college and was shooting for the county. I really wanted to go back to college to follow my family farming genes, but with a lack of support, I stayed in my fitness jobs. I then worked at an outdoor...

How I began shooting

I first wanted to try shooting after watching the pentathlon in the 2012 London Olympic Games when I was only 6 years old! Over the years I sort of forgot about it until I was having a conversation with my dad about inspirational female athletes and he brought up...

How I began shooting

I grew up surrounded by trophies on the living room unit that my Dad was forever bringing home from shooting skeet at our local shooting ground so it’s always been a sport that’s quite close to me. It wasn’t until last year that I purchased a gun with my sister and we...

Some of the boys were making fun of me

Having grown up beating on a local farm shoot, 2017 was going to be my first beaters shoot, because some of the boys were making fun of me being a girl and going to shoot, I asked for a few lessons to prepare me. This was where my clay shooting journey started. I had...

I used to fancy myself as a bit of an Annie Oakley

I used to fancy myself as a bit of an Annie Oakley growing up on the farm, taking pot shots at tin cans & targets, but never graduated to a shotgun. An ex-partner used to shoot & I was always a ‘hanger-on’ so decided to do some lessons & thoroughly enjoyed...
