Come and Try

The Melbourne Gun Club conducts regular "Come & Try" sessions for those interested in trying this great sport.  You will be coached and supervised by experienced members of the Club who are keen to make sure your time with us is enjoyable and rewarding.  Clay target shooting is a true family sport where all can participate, meet new friends and have fun together.

Booking is online only, please scroll to the bottom to select your date and book your ticket.

Who Can Participate?
To participate you must be over the age of 12 years and a firearms licence is NOT required.  No matter whether you are male or female or young or old, you will find clay target shooting to be a wonderful sport quite different to what you may expect.

Come along and break a few targets!

Unlike many other sports, there are very few physical limitations to participating.  Clay target shooting is addictive, fun and challenging. Once you attend just one shoot you will realise what you have been missing - a great sport, and lots of fun!
