At Shooting UK, we’re here to help and inform all aspects of your shooting, whether you’re a novice shooter or somebody who has been out in the field every season for years. We write pieces on how you can improve your shooting, learn new skills and better your technique.

We also keep a keen eye out on gun laws and Government legislation affecting shooters, staying abreast of new developments with expert comment.

You might be a gameshooter or clayshooting might be much more your bag. Or maybe you do both, depending on the season. Either way, by browsing through the articles below you’ll find the answers to many of your questions and you’ll see that many shooters have had many of the same experiences as you.

Then there are the pigeon shooting fans and those who love nothing better than being out on the foreshore, wildfowling.

If you’re looking for somewhere to shoot, check out our shoot reports, which are updated regularly. And of course, if you’re looking for a new gun or want to buy one second-hand, then we’re always reviewing shotguns, rifles and airguns of every description.

Should you want us to cover something in particular,  please e mail us direct here with your request.

We’re always open to new ideas.
