Come & Try Clay Target Shooting

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.


Who Can Participate

To participate you must be over the age of 12 years and a firearms license 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!

Come & Try Fees

Bookings are essential. The cost is $65.00 for adults and $35.00 for Juniors (12-17yrs accompanied by parent or guardian).

Bookings are limited to 25 each session. If your preferred session is booked out you will be advised of an alternative date.

Give clay target shooting a try - you'll be glad you did!

Session Structure

You will need to arrive at 8.45 am for a 9.00 am start and come to the club rooms where refreshments and breakfast are available from the cafe if so desired (cash only).  There is a compulsory safety briefing which is only held once each session.  All fees are payable on the day and you will need to sign the visitor's book for insurance purposes.

The Come & Try shooting activity runs for 1 - 1.5 hours.  Please make sure you wear closed shoes and no camouflage clothing or singlets.  The club supplies all required equipment and highly experienced supervisors to assist you.  We operate a strict zero alcohol policy.

You may fire up to 25 shots whilst you engage in clay target shooting but this may vary according to the circumstances.  A firearms license is not required to participate in our Come & Try Days.

All fees must be paid when your booking is made and will be confirmed by the Club.  No refunds will be given if cancellation notice is not received 5 business days before the event.  Bookings, when transferred to another date, can only be transferred one time.

Come & Try participants may only attend 3 separate sessions prior to obtaining a firearms license and becoming a member of the Melbourne Gun Club.

Trap and DTL targets are released from an oscillating trap so the target is released unpredictably within a defined arc.

Sporting Clays

Sporting clay targets are thrown from numerous traps over a large area with each club and competition vastly different.

Five Stand
