Dordogne (France)

Practice or Learn Target Shooting While on Holiday in the Dordogne!

Your range day can be tailored to your needs.

Here’s a typical day:


Hot Breakfast & Coffee

Authentic Skill at Arms Instruction on various period Rifles

Structured one to one safety briefings.

We then travel to the range through the picturesque Dordogne region, with lunch at a typical French restaurant on route (sorry no alcohol at this point in time!)



Range & safety briefing

Shooting the various weapons at ranges of 25m – 100m – 400m as you wish.

Relaxed one to one coaching and zeroing and feedback with your own dedicated instructor.


All of our instructors are retired UK Military &/or Police personnel, who carry licences issued by the Federation Francaise de Tir (National shooting Authority).

The weapons are licensed under the French Categories B or C and subject to availability may include SMLE’s, No 4 & No 5 Lee Enfields, Mauser K98k and M1 Garand, further weapons are being added regularly and the list may change. If you want to put 80 rounds through just one rifle then that’s fine by us!

UK Heath and Safety procedures are followed together with the appropriate French domestic Range regulations.


Ear defenders and safety glasses are provided although if prescription glasses are worn it may be necessary for the shooter to provide their own eye protection, due to the variations in spectacles.

Strong foot wear and warm casual clothing are recommended.(Uniforms may not be worn at the Ranges, but are permitted at the morning sessions for photographic purposes).


Ranges are available on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.


To enable closer supervision and one to one tuition only, one to four shooters are allowed on the range at any one time, although spectators, or family, may view as appropriate.


Ammunition is included and depending on time and circumstances further ammunition may be purchased on the day.
