At the very beginning of the road with this sport, it is worth choosing an instructor who will show us the basic activities. Under his supervision, we will be able to develop our own passion. Involved people can join a shooting club. There we will have contact with other people, thanks to which we will exchange experiences. This is an opportunity to get the tips and advice you need. Club members can count on special privileges. One of them is free use of the shooting range or participation in club days.

Those who are serious about it can enroll in a course and then take the exams. However, in this case, appropriate practice and belonging to a club that is entered into the Polish Sport Shooting Association are required.

This is necessary because not all people coming to the shooting range have a gun permit. However, under the supervision of a professional, such permission is not a necessity.
