Shooting holidays, breaks and vacations, including clay pigeon, air rifle, wildfowling, game shooting and simulated game shooting in the UK, Europe and Worldwide.

Terms, abbreviations and qualifications for shooting breaks and holidays
BASC – The British Association for Shooting and Conservation.
CPSA – the English National Governing body for Clay Target Shooting.
Clay shoots – saucer-shaped disks (of limestone and pitch) are launched, at a variety of speeds and angles, from machines called 'traps'; these are used as targets for year-round shooting.
Simulated game shooting – closed season shoots using 'clays' and simulation equipment to replicate a driven game shoot.
GNAT – remote controlled target shooting system using a small aircraft which is a scaled down version of a military target drone.
Game shooting – live quarry shooting, in a number of styles:
Driven – where 'beaters', walk through woodland 'drives', and the game birds go on ahead of the beating line. Shooters, 'guns', are positioned at the point the birds will take flight.
Walked-up & rough-shooting – where one or more guns walk through a game area and shoot as birds are flushed from cover. Rough-shooting is normally carried out in small groups.
Wildfowling – wild duck and geese hunting on tidal marshes, estuaries and foreshores.

Travel-Quest top tips for shooting holidays
• It's recommended that novices start with clay shooting at a clay ground where they can learn to shoot with expert instruction, without the need to have their own gun or to hold a shotgun licence.
• Even if just clay shooting, make sure you're covered by insurance, be it provided by the shooting ground or something you buy for yourself.
• Shoots will insist all guns have adequate public liability insurance through a recognised field sports organisation such as the BASC or CPSA.
