For the course you will need 100 approximately rounds of birdshot (number 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8). You can supply your own or purchase upon entering for the course.

In addition, there may be the opportunity to fire slug ammunition (fibre wad only). Only those that have this type of ammunition on their FAC are able to purchase and fire this ammunition. Slug ammunition is not available to purchase upon entry, you will need to supply approximately 25 rounds if you wish to use it.


Who can take part?

  • You can attend if you are a full NRA member, or a member of a club affiliated to the NRA.
  • You do not need to possess a firearm, as shotguns can be hired to you for the purpose of the course.
  • Attendees must be over 14 years of age on the first day of the course.


Shooter Certification Card (SCC): You are not required to have “Target Shotgun” listed on your SCC to attend this course, as we can run an assessment for this at the end of the course.

NRA members that pass the assessment will have Target Shotgun added to their SCC.

Non-NRA Members can receive a certificate of attendance, which you can provide as evidence to your Club Chairman who can authorise Target Shotgun to be added to your SCC.
