Located in Derbyshire at a stunning private country estate, our pump action shotgun experience is as action packed as it sounds. If you’re looking for stuff to to in Derbyshire, be it a hen do or stag weekend, or a corporate team building weekend, it’s an exciting group activity.
One of the best aspects of pump action shotguns is that there is absolutely no recoil at all – the trait of standard shotguns that can create that ‘kick back’ which can be painful if you’re shooting for a long time. And just loading the guns with the cartridges is exciting – let alone trying your hand at shooting them for the first time.
You’ll be shooting Mossberg 500 & Remington 870 pump action shotguns, and they really look the part as you’ll see from the photos here. The Mossberg is used by the American Military & Police, and the Remington is used by the British Army & Police Entry Teams. So you’re shooting the real deal. No messing about.
On arrival we’ll welcome you to the estate with free teas and coffees in the clubhouse. You could pre-order some food for your arrival too if you like (must be booked in advance.) We do a cracking full English breakfast at this centre, and lots of other food options are available.
Our Instructors will run through a safety briefing with you in a relaxed and fun manner, and we’ll let you get a feel for the shotguns, clays and cartridges.
Then it’s time to get onto the beautifully presented grounds to rack & load your pump action shotguns. With our advice we’ll get you smashing those flying clays – it’s fast and furious stuff, and it’s going to make for some awesome photos to show your mates.
You’ll automatically get score cards for each person taking part, and we can ramp up the odds by scoring the event as a competition amongst your group if you fancy.
There’s a smashing clubhouse on site which has a bar for after the shotgun experience, and we can also highly recommend the fab country pub at the end of the drive too. Both are great places to relax and have fun chatting about the unique shooting experience you’ve just taken part in.
Massive thanks to Greg and HDK for organising a great stag weekend. Greg was easy to deal with, understood our needs and made everything seamless from the accommodation to the activities and pub crawl. Highly recommended!
Worried about organising a stag do for 28 people? Well don't be, just contact Greg he'll do it for you. Numerous activities available, transport and accommodation all sorted and all great quality. Helped to give my son a fantastic stag party and memorable weekend
My immense thanks to Greg and Hard Days Knight for organising me a fantastic stag do 25-27 March 2022. Unlike some of the national stag do agencies, HDK offer a personal service and really know the detail of all of the activities they offer and on the accomodation options. Greg was an absolute pleasure to deal with, nothing was too much and no question too silly. I really felt assured that I was in great hands with someone who put my mind at rest that they knew what they were doing, and the proof really was in the pudding, as all 15 of my group had a fantastic time.
