It is important to book as we didn't and had to come back but so glad we did. Bruce is fantastic our son is a bit nervous and he was patient with him. You get to try lots of different types of guns and you can compete with the 22's. He gives great value for money never seeming in a... More

If you want to experience an hour of shooting this is the place to go. You will have the opportunity to shoot a semi-auto .22 at 25m, then a .223 at 400m, followed by a semi- auto-shotgun firing at clays. When this is complete you then shoot a .308 at a steel plate at 700m. The range is 14km north... More

With time to kill and 3+1/2 kids to entertain, things were looking desperate in old Nelson town. The Go Karts looked lame, and the busking wasn't pulling in too much interest { maybe the Australian National anthem just doesn't cut the mustard for the kiwi crowd.....}. Anyhow, we stumbled { via one of those hotel lobby ad boards} across Cable... More

I went with a group of friends and had never shot anything before in my life. Within minutes, Bruce had us all shooting and having a great time! The best parts: Bruce is such a cool guy! Even though he's a very experienced shooter and we were a group of amateurs, he was patient and safe and knew exactly how... More

Seventeen of us did this and it proved to be a great group activity enjoyed by all. There was a variety of guns, including a long range sniper rifle which was the highlight for me. Activities also included a bit of competition between our group which was fun. Instructions were clear and this was certainly value for money. Highly recommend.

Worth it! We had so much fun! We practiced with a short range rifle, a shot gun, a long range rifle and a a sniper rifle. It was a great experience for me who is unexperienced and for my husband who had some experience!

So much fun! Our package for two people had us trying out different rifles/activities (close-range, time trial, clay pigeon, long-range/sniper). Bruce's instructions were clear, and he gave advice readily which was very helpful. Never felt rushed, pressured, or hopeless. The start was a little quick, but he spends time during the sets for set up and constant readjustment, etc. Very... More

This was our highlight on our visit to Nelson. My grandchildren 9 & 14 years were given full safety instructions on how to shoot four different types of rifles . They were thrilled at how easy it was due to Bruce's expert guidence.. The clay pigeon disk shooting with the shot gun was amazing . The sniper rifle with its... More

This was a birthday treat for my husband but we all ended up shooting and so glad we did. The variety was really good moving from the smaller thru to the larger and the different types of disciplines. It doesnt matter if you have zero experience you get shown everything and what to do , what to expect etc, hearing... More
