Clay pigeon shooting always has something new to offer for its polished as well as new shooters. To nail this sport and become a professional shooter though, you have to remember one mantra – Look, Aim, Wait, Focus and Fire!
Sure, it might feel a little daunting at first, especially for the beginners out there to pick up a gun and start shooting. However, to help you overcome these worries, we at Avalanche Adventure strive to make this sport as easy as possible while keeping in mind the responsibility of the safety of our adventurers.
So, without further ado, let’s take a look at some of the many clay pigeon shooting safety tips for you.
1. Protect Your Eyes
When you think about clay pigeon shooting safety tips, the most obvious one is to take care of your gun. However, you should give equal attention to the other aspects too, like protecting your eyes while shooting.
At Avalanche Adventure, we care for your safety and hence have got it covered!
At our activity centre, we have a myriad of different lenses for you to choose from and all the other necessities required to protect you while you enjoy this thrilling experience.
2. Protect Your Ears
Just like how crucial it is to protect your eyes, it is also important to protect your ears. This is because the rifles are extremely loud. Put simply, while you’re shooting, you have to be up close to them and hence, you become vulnerable to this loud noise.
3. Wear Proper Footwear
While shooting, you might or might not be walking across grassy fields and moors. Either way, you should make sure your shoes are sturdy enough to avoid any slips and trips.
Additionally, your shoes should have proper grip and fiction to position you right when you are about to fire. This is important because you might misfire if you stumble on your ground which is likely to happen as the gun releases pressure into your arms.
Lastly, remember to wear shoes that you’re comfortable in and ensure that they don’t prevent you from having fun; after all, you wouldn’t want to feel left out while your friends and family are enjoying their time in our arena all day!
4. Do Not Drink
Under no circumstances should you consume alcohol before entering the clay pigeon shooting arena. When you are drunk, naturally you’ll lose the required focus in this activity.
That said, consider this as a 101 in the list of our clay pigeon shooting safety tips because standing on the shooting ground drunk is not only risky for you but for the people around you as well.
5. Never Point the Gun
Clay pigeon shooting or any other thrilling activities provided by us promises an unforgettable experience every time you’re at our activity centre. You can and should feel the excitement and show it to your colleagues or friends too.
However, what we’re getting at is that while fun is an essential part of this experience, you should not forget to be responsible.
There are chances to get consumed by excitement and you might end up pointing the gun at your partner to funnily act like you caught them, but you shouldn’t do that, even when the gun is not loaded.
Accidents are inevitable, but do your bit and reduce them by acting sensibly.
To Sum Up…
Outdoor activities are like a breath of fresh air and while you’re breathing that air, it makes your heart beat race in the fastest way possible.
However, safety while performing these activities should not be overlooked at any point in time. The above-mentioned safety tips are some of the many that you can take into account while you enjoy clay pigeon shooting.
