You will be picked up from your hotel and taken to the clay pigeon shooting range on the outskirts of Riga. Once you arrive at the grounds, you will be met by a qualified instructor who will go over the procedures and safety instructions. Each person will get 25 rounds (extra clays and ammunition can be purchased on-site). The clays are released from traps in a variety of locations to simulate specific prey, for instance, `the bird` which flies over you, the one which flies away, or from left to right. Additional unique Riga clay pigeon shooting experience is the `rabbit` shooting – the clay is released from the trap the way it hits the ground and continues the movement in a rolling and bouncing way which very much reminds a rabbit. The instructor is all the time, telling from which trap the clay will be released and what you should focus on.
If you won`t hit the target, the instructor explains where was the mistake and what shall you do to improve your next shot. Experience the thrill of hitting a moving target as each shot is made progressively more demanding as your confidence increases.
Only one person shoots at a time, so you all get a chance to see how other of your friends deal with the challenge of hitting the clay pigeon or clay rabbit. The first 10 shots done by each person is a practice. The last 15 shots is a competition between the group. We write down each person`s name and count how many successful shots each of you has made. Before the `Riga Clay Pigeon shooting` competition starts you can set up the goal or prize for the winner or a person who turns out to be the worse shooter in your group. The competition brings a lot of laughter as there is always someone in a group who gets very good results as well as the one who can`t see or hit almost anything and after each missed shot turns to the group with a very surprised face.
Clay pigeon shooting is very popular among Riga Stag Do party groups since it is fun, challenging, shows the results (easy to determine a winner), located very close to Riga (does not take a long time travelling in a van) and is outdoors in the fresh air. The clay pigeon shooting in Riga is also popular as a team building activity and often gets combined with the visit of outdoor go karting, located just 500 meters away.
If you book clay pigeon shooting in winter or on a rainy day, there is a cafeteria with large windows, located just 10 meters behind the shooting line, so you can easily wait your turn while drinking a soft drink or coffee and watch the results of your friends.
When you finish clay pigeon shooting, we will take you back to the hotel or old town of Riga.
