Sniper Challenge

This is an exciting introduction into the black art of the sniper. This day is run with an ex-UKSF Instructor using state of the art rifles, spotting scopes and equipment.

Jon will show you an insight into the world of the sniper and how it has evolved into the phenomenon of extreme long range shooting we have today.

No experience necessary, this is a fun day for anyone over 17 and makes a great gift.

This is a group day for up to 8 people. Ammunition is included in the price up to the .308.

General feedback on the day

"Wow, what a fantastic day! I have never shot before and wasn't sure what to expect. Jon is a great instructor, who explains things clearly and the group quickly progressed from the .22 to the larger rifles. The day was fun and challenging and I couldn't believe I was hitting targets at 800m by the end of the day, having been a complete novice just hours earlier. Simply a great day out!"

 

Sniper Challenge days will be run on the FOURTH Thursday of each month.
