“Excellent for brushing up before the season”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

A wide variety of stands, with everything from the most basic to the very tricky presentations. I particularly like that you can just turn up, sign in etc, then with a clicker move from stand to stand as you wish and then pay for the clays at the end. Cheaper if you take your own cartridges but you can buy them on site too.

“A great and varied layout”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

When my shooting partner and I visited in late December a number of the traps had suffered storm damage, most notably the high birds but those remaining offered a great and varied challenge. Instructor Bob is especially worth a mention here. We first met him at the Southern Counties ground a few weeks ago and a more affable and helpful guy you could not wish to meet.

A group of 3 girls visited the shooting school on our holiday in Dorset as it sounded and interesting activity. We were not disappointed, our 'teacher' was brilliant and gave us easy to follow advice and put us at ease. It was a brilliant day and it has definately given us a taste for clay pigeon shooting.

“Not just a shooting range!”
Reviewed 10 September 2013

I went shooting with 2 friends of mine to Purbeck at the beginning of Sept 13 and had an awesome time. Unfortunately one of our blokes couldn't come, so the Shooting School shared out his cartridges, so all in all, we shot c.70...which was just about enough.
Not having been shooting before, I expected just a boring range but Purbeck was a trail in the woods, with traps set all over the place, all with with different clays to shoot. It started easy but got rather difficult and frustrating, which was good. We'd definitely all go again!
If you go, ask for the Instructor called Trevor...he was smart and funny and made you relax quickly!
