What Can I Expect
Choose between Medieval and modern on these target combat combo experiences for two! Let your inner Viking out with a roar on the Medieval sessions covering archery, crossbow and axes, or go modern with rifles. Whichever weapons you favour, it’s all about getting your shots on target.
Basecamp for this trio of combat shooting combo experiences is a farm estate in Cheshire. Conveniently located right next to the M56, its just a 30-minute drive from major cities like Manchester, Chester and Liverpool to the wilds of this target combat ground.
If you get a sense of military precision about the whole affair, that’s because all the shoot instructors are either active or ex-military. Shooting activities are a bit of a speciality here, with several of the crew having been shooting instructors in the Army. They’re super keen to get you on target with your shots, so there are no gimmicks. It’s all about learning good, basic techniques that’ll ensure you progress to be a calm, collected and accurate shooter.
So if you fancy a bit of Medieval-style combat, choose between the axes and crossbow session, or the archery and crossbow version. Archery is really enjoyable and pretty easy to pick up, whilst crossbows are a little more tricky to get to grips with. As for axes…who wouldn’t enjoy lobbing an axe to land with a satisfying thud into a huge chunk of wood?
On the Modern side of things we are talking guns. You’ll be shown how to fire air rifles either on the outdoor or the covered range in the case of inclement weather. You start at a relatively modest 15m from the targets and then progress to being 30m away from the knock downs you’ll be aiming at. Then there’s the specific 15m covered ‘hideout’ shooting range, which is really good fun for honing your hand pistol skills. And of course, you’ve got the axes to try as well.
We think you’ll love these target combat combos. The teaching from the ex-Military team here is second to none and there’s a warm and friendly welcome too. Time to book your combat shoot session and see if you’re a bit of a hotshot!
