Sniper-Experience-Days

SNIPER EXPERIENCE DAY

You settle your cheek onto the rifle stock, look through the high-powered telescopic sight at the steel target 600m away. Check the wind, squeeze the trigger…boom! The bullet takes one second to find its mark. Three seconds later you hear a resounding CLANG. Congratulations! You made the shot.

For new shooters the famous WMS Sniper Experience Day provides a comprehensive, fun and challenging introduction to the art of rifle shooting.

Aimed at those who have never shot before or have done so only a few times this popular day includes a morning of .22 rimfire rifle (small calibre) shooting out to 150m to enable clients to build shooting skills, and work on shooting positions and trigger control.

After lunch we shoot larger calibre centrefire rifles, mainly in .308 out to 600m focusing on target acquisition, adjustments for wind and topography, building confidence and making consistent, accurate shots.

Because we believe in giving new shooters the highest level of instruction we limit our Sniper Experience Days to a maximum of four participants. This means that you spend a higher proportion of the day learning and shooting, rather than standing around waiting for your turn.

Cost: £275 per person incl VAT and all ammo
Duration: 09.00-17.00
Includes:

  • Meet and greet at HQ over tea and coffee
  • Safety briefing
  • Full instruction; safe firearms use; shooting positions; marksmanship skills; trigger control; wind and topography; successful target acquisition; consistent shooting
  • Full insurance
  • Use of our rifles and equipment
  • All ammunition
  • 4×4 transport to and from our shooting areas
  • Hot drinks throughout the day
  • Debrief over tea and cake back at HQ
  • Certificate of attendance and achievement

Clients must be 18 year old or over, provide full contact details, and pay in advance by credit or debit card to secure their booking. Courses run with a minimum of two people and a maximum of four.

We run our SNIPER EXPERIENCE DAYS throughout the year: for next available dates or more information please call Andrew or Helena on 01974 831869 or email info@wmsfirearmstraining.com

BESPOKE SNIPER DAY

For clients that have completed the Sniper Experience or Sniper Experience Plus, or who have relevant shooting experience, we can offer a BESPOKE SNIPER DAY.

Fancy shooting your favourite WMS rifle at longer distances? Want to see who in your group is the best shot? Got a craving to shoot over 1km? Our Bespoke Sniper Day can be put together to meet your preferred requirements and is designed to fous on building further long-range shooting skills and accuracy.

The day can also include shooting from kneeling, sitting and standing off sticks, the chance to try one of our exciting competitive shoot-off scenarios, and the opportunity to win a prize for the longest successful shot made on the day. Prices from £250 per person PLUS the cost of centrefire ammunition used.

SNIPER PLUS DAY

Our Sniper Plus Day is available to people who have attended our standard Sniper Day and want to come back again to do more. It is also open to clients who have already learned the basics of rifle shooting but want to progress. The group size will be kept at four, to ensure you get more shooting and less hanging about.

The day follows a similar format to the Sniper Experience Day, with safety and basic refresher input on the marksmanship principles using our .22 rimfire rifles in the first morning session. Following on from this will be a session on positional shooting from standing, kneeling and sitting using a variety of sporting centrefire rifles including our Section One AK47.

After lunch the first afternoon session will begin with shooting our tactical 7.62×51 calibre rifles at 200-700 metres. The second afternoon session includes shooting our new .300 WinMag x 10 rounds and .338 Lapua Magnum x 5 rounds at steel targets between 800-1000 metres. Additional .300WM and .338LM rounds can be purchased on the day at £2 and £5 per round respectively.
