Lauryn guided me through gun fitment, gun mount, shot pattern, skeet shooting technique and tips for me to use when I return to the range on my practice days. I would highly recommend Lauryn and Russell’s coaching clinics to anyone who wants to improve their clay shooting skills, it was money well spent.

Can we consume alcohol/drugs before or during the activity?
We enforce a strict ZERO BLOOD ALCOHOL & DRUG policy. No alcohol or drugs are to be consumed before or during the activity. Any suspicion of any consumption of alcohol will result in the participant not being able to handle a firearm. At most venues, bar facilities are available after the activity.
What happens if the weather is bad?
We will do our best to ensure that the day is enjoyable regardless of the weather. If it is pouring rain or there is lightning we will take a break until the harsh weather passes. Otherwise, we encourage you to wear weather-appropriate clothing to ensure you feel as comfortable as possible during your experience.
What attire should I wear?
Comfortable clothing that is weather appropriate. It is advisable to wear flat, closed-toe shoes. No singlets, thongs, or camouflage clothing can be worn. If you wear corrective lenses for distance, it is beneficial to use them during the activity. We recommend you bring a hat and sunglasses. Jackets with big collars are discouraged as they make mounting the shotgun into the shoulder difficult.
Is this activity safe?
All shooting is undertaken within the confines of an un-inhibiting safety cage. All firearms are loaded and unloaded by a qualified instructor. There has never been an accident at any of our events. All safety equipment such as safety glasses and ear protection is provided.
We've read all of your 5-star reviews and are curious about what differentiates your company from other places running similar events?
Being the original clay target shooting events company in Australia, we have a vast amount of expertise. We pride ourselves on providing a Gold Medal experience. One of the many ways that we do that is through the target presentation. For example, at our Werribee range, we shoot over 11 different traps at 6 different stands, which provides a presentation suitable to all ability levels.
Is there an age limit and is it for males only?
There is a minimum age limit of twelve years. Gender is no limitation. Females have on many occasions out-performed their male counterparts during the competition section of the activity.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have coaching from Russell and Lauryn at different times. I can’t recommend them highly enough. The coaching sessions are completely focussed on improving your shooting in your chosen discipline. The difference between Russell & Lauryn and other coaches is that they coach you, your style (within limits), and your approach to the sport. They will have you consistently hitting more targets in practice and competition, improving your ability, your confidence, and your resilience as a competitor.
Awesome experience. Lauryn is fantastic, she gave some great coaching, she really knows her stuff! Thank you
