Clay Shooting

The Barbarian Horde Clay Club

We have started an adhoc Clay Shoot group that generally meet at Barbury Shooting Ground near Wroughton. If you fancy coming along then let either Ian Smedley or Chris Blackler know and we’ll add you to our contact list. It is not just for Tidworth RPC members so feel free to bring along friends. I must stress this is a fun shoot so if you don’t like being heckled then it may not be for you! Also we are not a teaching club, it is for existing clay shooters, we are happy to give advice (not always good) but you must have some experience. If you are a complete novice then get a lesson, see if you like it and then come along to one of our shoots.

You will need eye and ear protection and should wear a hat with a peak to protect your head and eyes from falling clay fragments. If it’s a Barbury shoot then you can borrow these from the club house. We can also arrange loan guns but let us know in advance so we can get something suitable.

We usually do a 50 or 60 bird shoot followed by a flush so some experience is necessary but if you want to start clay shooting then have a word with Chris B and we’ll see what we can do.

We usually meet at 10:00 and finish around 14:30. Costs are around £24 for 60 clays, £10 for the flush and shells are available for around £6 per box of 25.  Loan guns are free via members of Barbury Shooting School. Bacon butties are £2.00, Egg and Bacon butties are £2.50 and tea, coffee and juice are free.

Think that covers it but if you really need to know anything more then feel free to ask…

Next Shoot: Tuesday 7th November. Sporting 100 plus a flush.
Meet at 10:00 to start shooting at 10:30.
Get in contact with Ian Smedley or Chris Blackler if you want to attend.
