Spring has sprung and temperatures are on the rise. Whether you are a crack shot out in the field or a total newbie, it’s a great time to find a Clay Ground in your area and have a crack at simulated game shooting. Clay Pigeon Shooting is highly enjoyable, accessible and particularly popular with people living in towns, or have less time to enjoy their sport, or for those looking to improve their shot in the Off Season.
You can cast your tweeds, field jackets and breeks aside for Clay Shooting. Attire consists of clothing which allows the wearer to move freely - you will need to be able to move, point your gun upwards and turn with minimum restriction. Baggy clothing is also unsuitable as it has a tendency to catch or cause your gun to slip. Depending on the time of year and what the classic British weather decides to throw your way, dress accordingly!
Layering is often the best policy so you can add or remove as the temperature changes throughout the day. A t-shirt is fine although most will opt for a polo or tattersall shirt.
