Clay Pigeon Shooting

Clay Pigeon shooting in Northern Ireland is an activity that demands concentration, a keen eye and quick reactions. Staying cool, calm and collected is the key to this activity. In Clay Pigeon shooting, only clay targets are used so no real pigeons or birds of any type are targeted.

Laser Clay Pigeon shooting is also available in Northern Ireland. Participants use a modified shotgun to fire an infrared beam at clays launched from a conventional clay launcher. Whenever the trigger is pulled a shotgun 'bang' is generated and when a player hits the target it reproduces the sound of a breaking clay. This is an environmentally responsible, safe activity for both young and old.
