During this week, clubs and ranges throughout the country are opening their doors to the public and allowing participants to try shooting for the first time.

Discounted prices and expert tuition will be available to get you smashing your first clays or hitting your first target, without breaking the bank.

Bolton Gun Club, the Countryside Alliance?s Shooting Club of the Year, will be holding a charity open day on 5 June, as part of National Shooting Week.

The club raised more than £2,500 for Help for Heroes at a similar event last year.

Club chairman Steven Dawes said: ?The aim of our open days is to further the public?s understanding of shooting as well as to raise funds for a deserving cause.?
