Have gone shooting a couple times before, but never been trained properly until now. SCSC has great instructors to help you through the basics. The course is also nicely varied to give you introductory, moderate, and advanced shooting options. Highly suggest it!

We had the best time learning how to shoot clay pigeons. Gordon was a wonderful teacher, he is a true delight. Patient and fun easy to laugh with. We would recommend this place without hesitation or reservation. A great afternoon!!

We arrived to a warm, relaxed welcome which put us at ease immediately. Our instructor, Gordon McKay, was friendly, patient, good at explaining things and had a great sense of humour. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would definitely return for more lessons. Highly recommended.
