What Can I Expect
Standard, exploding and combo air rifle experiences in north Nottingham! We've got a trio of target shooting vouchers for you to choose from at this centre near Calverton. You’ll be shooting ‘em up on the range in Lime Woods, just a few miles north of Nottingham city centre and everything you need to be right on target is included.
This shoot is well-established and has an excellent reputation, with a good range of equipment and tuition from experienced tutors who are also superb hosts for these outdoor target shooting events in the heart of the north Notts countryside.
Standard air gunning experiences aim to teach you all the basics about firing an air rifle. You’ll be shown how to handle the gun, how to hold it, how to prepare to release the trigger and how to make your shooting as accurate as possible. If you’ve never fired an air rifle before, it’s something that is always best done in a safe, controlled environment like this one near Calverton.
Unique to this north Nottingham shoot set up is the exploding target option. This is where you’ll be aiming at specially designed reactive targets that explode. Hit them with your air gun pellet and they detonate with a bang, a plume of smoke and a little blast of fire too. These ingenious little disc-shaped targets certainly add and extra thrill to any ‘plinking’ session and you’re guaranteed plenty of bang for your buck - literally!
For the ultimate target shooting session, go for the Rifle Shooting Combo voucher. It gives you a duo of activities, with a standard air rifle session, followed by your choice between axe throwing and archery. Prepare yourself for a couple of hours of shooting fun if you pick this one.
So whether you go for the standard air rifles in north Nottingham, you want a more explosive shooting session, or you fancy combining air rifling with another target sport, we think these sessions offered at the lovely setting of Lime Woods are spot on target!
