Common Questions

See below for answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.

Can non-members shoot at Bisley?

Yes non-members are more than welcome although membership gives you discounted shooting and special offers.

Do I need to bring my own shotgun?

No, providing you are booked in with an instructor we will always be able to provide you with a firearm. We have different calibre guns based on your height, build and preference.

What is the minimum age requirement?

We normally recommend a minimum age of 12 years old; however we do have a lot of 10 and 11 year old children that come shooting with us if they are of a good build. Something you can try at home is to see if they can hold 1lb of sugar in their hand with their arm fully outstretched for one minute… if they can, they should be fine!

Will shooting hurt my shoulder?

Our professional instructors will always make sure that we provide you with a gun suitable to your height and build. Most men shoot with a 12 bore, ladies a 20 bore and children a 28 bore or 410. The correct gun, along with low recoil cartridges, a shoulder pad if necessary and the correct gun mounting position will all ensure you enjoy your shoot.

How many clays and cartridges do I need for a 1 hour session?

On average you will shoot approximately 100 clays and cartridges.

How far in advance do I need to book?

We recommend you book one week in advance.

What should I wear?

We normally say dress as if you are going out on a country walk. We are very relaxed at Bisley and are more than happy for our clients to wear jeans, chinos etc. You will be out in the woods walking around to the different stands so sturdy footwear is advisable. We recommend that all clients wear hearing, head and eye protection

What happens if it rains?

Being an outdoor sport we do shoot in all weathers. Therefore we will continue to shoot in rain and snow. The only time we will need to stop is for lightening.

Can I still shoot if I am pregnant?

This is something you will need to discuss with your doctor.

Can I bring my dog with me?

Yes, providing your dog remains on a lead at all times.

If I store my gun with you, when can I access it?

The gun will be stored in the armoury in the Cottesloe Heath Clubhouse. Please call Reception 24 hurs in advance to arrange collection. Please do remember to bring your shotgun licence with you as we cannot release the gun without seeing the original document.

How do I apply for a shotgun license?

If you visit the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC) website you will find information on how to apply for a license with the police.
