Paintballing

RAPTOR (Responsive Aiming and Tactical Operation Range) is as far as we can find, the first of its kind anywhere in the UK, and uses magazine fed paintball markers and a variety of tactical equipment to deliver a more realistic and unique paintball experience. Many people are put of from taking part in paintball because of the physical nature of the game and the pain from being hit!  Well, our range takes the ‘pain’ out of paintball by shooting at interactive targets which don’t shoot back, all within a relaxed yet competitive environment!

Clay Shooting

Clay Pigeon Shooting is a thrilling experience, demanding calm concentration, a keen eye and quick reactions. Perfect your aim and shots and soon you will be notching up your ‘kills’.

Of course, these are not real birds and no one gets hurt, making it a great sport for all – young and old, men and women alike. Why not find out if you have what it takes on the ‘Have a Go’ stand and see if you can become a                                                                                              crack marksman in one of Britain’s fastest growing sports.

 

Star Shot

Starshot is a huge “half-circle target” that was designed as a new way to enjoy clay target skeet shooting. Invented in Scotland in the 1980s, the structure stands almost 30 feet high and is divided into 12 scoring segments. Clay targets are released on command and the shooter’s score is valued according to the zone in which the target is broken. ESPN ran a program with the same name – Starshot, in the late 80s and early 90s, with two teams of two playing against each other, with one person on each team being a professional marksman, and the other person being a popular athlete of the time (usually one who did have some experience with guns though).

The BBC also started a series of TV programmes on the same format. Celebrities such as the cricketer Ian Botham and Jackie Stewart appeared on the show. Commentary was by David Vine and after eight month’s hard graft and some serious investment have finally allowed Lancashire shooter, John Bridges, to realise a long held ambition to revitalise and re-launch the one and only mobile shooting rig known as Starshot. After being laid up in an open ended barn for eleven years John totally stripped the mobile unit and rebuilt it from scratch, pumping a vast amount of his own money into it along the way. The idea of Starshot is to shoot each number from 1 to 12 in sequence in its own section plus a pair to finish which would give the shooter a maximum total of 88 if they had successfully hit them all.
