Algarve clay pigeon

Pigeon's goose is totally cooked

This is an example of timings that work well, but we arrange the times according to your needs!
  • 1330: Pick-up time at your Albufeira hotel
  • 1400: Arrive at the clays range – start with a briefing on safety and equipment from your monitor.
  • 1430: Begin shooting – keep your gun pointing upwards please! You’ll shoot either one by one or in small subgroups. Those waiting can amuse themselves at how bad their mates’ aim is, or have a quick babyfoot competition at the café.
  • 1600: The shooting ends with scores and head shaking (no doubt). Who was the sharpest shot?
  • 1630: Transport back to your hotel or another central drop.
  • Private coach travel from the Albufeira area. Remember to let us know which hotel you are staying in!
  • Qualified English speaking gun instructors – this is a Portuguese Championship range.
  • 25 skeets of varying types and difficulty, depending on ability.
  • Bar and café facilities.
  • No one under the influence will be allowed to participate for obvious reasons. We recommend an afternoon slot so you don’t arrive too groggy after a night out in Albufeira.
  • Safety is paramount during shooting at all times and you must heed the advice of the monitors.
  • This activity is available all year and start times are flexible.

Advice on shooting in the Algarve

  • Look at the target only, not the “beads” on your shotgun.
  • Move the gun to the target as soon as you see it…make sure you get to it before you fire.
  • Look at the target and you will naturally move the gun where you are looking
  • Keep the gun firmly against your shoulder to avoid bruising from the ricochet of the stock.
  • Feet together, lean forward slightly, swing the lower body from the hips swing smoothly – body, gun (and soul) should move as one unit.
  • Hearing protection is a must.
  • Important to keep the barrel of your gun moving in front of your target (maybe 1 or 2 barrel lengths).
  • Squeeze…and watch the target burst (if you are on form) but remember that clay pigeons asre not as tasty as the real ones, or the Frango Piri Piri served locally!
