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.

The course is open to all NRA members including those who do not currently hold an FAC or possess the appropriate firearm.

Non-NRA members can attend providing they have successfully completed the required probationary course, possess an appropriate firearm and pay the additional course fee.

This course can provide a Shooter Certification Card (SCC) assessment if required – therefore if you do not have ‘Target Shotgun” listed on your SCC you can enter onto this course.

SCC Assessments are only available to NRA Members; non members can receive a certificate of attendance.
