It’s not everyone’s cup of tea – but we recently tried shooting!
http://vantagehsi.com/tag/home-care/ Like most folk, neither myself, my wife or kids have ever really had any exposure to guns and shooting, but when I drove past a sign coming back from Cromer my interest was piqued.
So, I called Holt Woodland Archery and Air Guns at High Kelling and a couple of days later we set off from the Mousetrap for the 35 minute drive to High Kelling, which is just beyond Holt town centre.
Bherāmāra Before going any further, this is not shooting at animals…
The ‘range’ is set up with plastic cartons hung in the bushes, old metal plates dangling from tree branches and a variety of other interesting targets.
You can’t wander into the range as it is sealed off by a barrier containing several ‘bays’ where you can position yourself and choose from various targets in front of you. The guns are high powered air rifles taking .22 pellets. They are typical break barrel cocking rifles, but they do have some gas-powered rifles, ideal for small kids who don’t have the strength to cock a traditional break barrel gun.
After a safety briefing, we all positioned ourselves appropriately and got to work. It was great fun and everyone soon shot the tin of pellets supplied, begging for more!
Holt Woodland Archery and Air Guns is on the Cromer Road just beyond Holt at High Kelling. It’s about 40 minutes drive from the Mousetrap. Air Gun price – £15 per person to hire with approx 100 pellets. Ideal for all adults and kids age 8 and upwards. For all enquiries please call Jon on 07899 917070.
You can also have a go at Archery…which is next on our list of activities to try when we return.
