For Shooters By Shooters

Wyre Gun Club was established back in 1983 as a straw bale club for local shooters to meet up, relax and enjoy their shooting. Even though we’ve grown significantly to over 500 members, those original tenets remain true. It’s never been driven by profit and we’ll always strive to give our club shooters the best value clays and cartridges we can.

Support the Club

Promoting the courses, lessons and group experiences that triggr.co.uk offer helps keep the cost of club shooting as good value as it is, it also helps keep vital new blood flowing into your sport.

If we catch you using plaswads you’ll be banned for life and politely asked to pick every one up before you leave, as the grass they land on goes into animal feed.

  • If you are using a semi-automatic please use a breech plug between stands
  • Please put spent cases in bins provided (semi-auto users, this includes you)
  • Please wear ear defenders, safety glasses and a peaked cap
  • Please understand that you are using the shooting ground at your own risk and there is the possibility that you may be struck by clay debris
  • Never shoot at anything other than the clay targets presented. If you fail to adhere to this you will be banned

FAQ

Please read these frequently asked questions that relate to triggr.co.uk, claycoach.com and Wyre Gun Club.

When are you open?

We can provide clay shooting coaching to individuals and groups seven days per week. This is subject to availability; shooters requiring tuition should check the active diary when booking or call us on either 07966 058211 or 07931 893242 to discuss.

Wyre Gun Club is open every Friday and Sunday (less Remembrance Sunday). We are also open on Boxing day. Registration 10.15 on Friday and 9.15 on Sunday.

Do I need my own gun?

You do not need your own gun if you are having a lesson from Tom or one of the other coaching team. Those who wish to shoot unaccompanied must have their own gun and hold a valid shotgun certificate.

What are the age limits?

There are no lower or upper age limits for clay target shooting. However, all shooters must be physically and mentally capable of safely holding and operating a shotgun. Typically, 12 years-old is a reasonable starting age but this varies from person to person.

Can people with disabilities shoot at Wyre Gun Club?

Yes. Providing individuals are physically and mentally capable of holding and operating a shotgun safely they are more than welcome to shoot at Wyre Gun Club. We are wheelchair friendly.

Are Stag and Hen parties welcome?

Yes. Clay target shooting is a great activity for a group of friends to undertake on a day out.

What is your alcohol policy?

Alcohol is not to be consumed on site. Additionally, any one deemed to be unfit due to drink will not be allowed to shoot and no refund will be offered.

Do you sell cartridges?

Yes.

Does the recoil of the gun hurt?

The recoil from a shotgun is noticeable but providing the correct technique is applied it should not be painful.

What should I wear?

There is no dress code per se. Casual clothing is fine. Try to avoid wearing tops or jackets with smooth and/or padded material as the gun is more likely to move out of position . All walkways are gravel tracks. Clay shooting is an outdoor sport so remember to bring a jacket if it is cold, wet or both. Some people do wear skeet/shooting vests but these are not mandatory.

What refreshments are available?

Tea and coffee on Sunday and Friday mornings only. You are welcome to bring soft drinks or flasks of tea/coffee if you are coming for a lesson or booked in for a group event on other days.
