A typical Purdey Young Shots full day runs as follows;

9.15am      Arrival for Bacon Rolls in the Purdey Gallery

9.30am     Basic Introduction to the Day
The instructor who is running the day will introduce himself and any other instructors and run through the format for the day. He will then issue everybody with a cap, some earplugs and safety glasses.

Depending on number of Young Shots we will split the groups according to age.  Then it is out on the grounds for three different sessions:

  1. Safety & Etiquette

This session teaches the essential safety aspects of shooting and ensures all our Young Shots understand the importance of safety. It covers off basic gun handling, use of safety equipment and the key rules of shooting.

  1. Shotgun Tuition

This session focus on developing the shotgun shooting skills of the Young Shots.  Using one of our many shotguns suitable for younger shots (.410, 28 Bore, 20 Bore and 12 Bore), the instructors will teach according to the experience of the Young Shot, building both confidence and technique.

  1. Air Rifle Tuition

The third session provides a chance for the Young Shots to learn basic skills of “rifle” shooting, by being taught how to shoot an air rifle with a telescopic sight.  It is a fun but different shooting discipline.

12.30pm   Lunch
Three sessions complete, the group comes together for lunch.

1.15pm      Afternoon Shooting.
After lunch, and following a quick briefing and review of the day so far, the groups head out for an afternoon of clay pigeon shooting.  This concludes with some fun team flushes.

3.30pm     Gun Cleaning
Shooting complete, we then show the Young Shots how to clean a gun, and review the day’s learning.  This is followed by presentation of certificates and Purdey caps

4.00pm     Depart
