CHANNEL YOUR INNER ACTION MOVIE HERO
With packages called John Wick, Terminator or Jason Bourne, this is for anyone who’s ever wanted to try the thrilling rush of shooting. Pigeons made from clay are hung up across various distances and shot using real bullets. Shooting is done outdoors on a shaded deck (sun protection is advised).
