WMS Firearms Training, owned and run by renowned rifle shooting instructor Andrew Venables, has installed a professional 50m moving target system for driven boar, running deer and other targets near its HQ in Mid Wales.
The system, which has been supplied and installed by Laporte of France, enables targets to travel at speeds of 1-30kph up and down a 50m track and is one of the longest moving target systems available anywhere.
Rifle shooters will be able to acquire and test their moving target shooting skills from 30-300m and shooting will be possible at the usual 90 degree angle as well as from 45 degrees both left and right to allow quartering shots. In addition the system can be started, stopped, sped up and slowed down via a radio remote control during shooting. The WMS moving target system can be hired, together with an instructor, from £850 per day and is available to private clients wanting a fully bespoke training experience through to groups of up to 10 shooters.
Andrew Venables of WMS, commented: “WMS clients now have the chance to train and hone their rifle shooting skills on this unique moving target system. Proper hunting preparation is vital, not just for driven boar and dangerous game, but for any hunt and the ability to shoot well from standing on static and moving targets is crucial. Our new moving target system will enable us to further empower clients to make the shot, however tough the circumstances.”
Gaylia Fallon, of Laporte in the UK, added: “We are delighted that WMS Firearms Training has chosen to install a moving target system from Laporte. WMS is renowned as the best provider of rifle shooting training in the UK and the new system will certainly give rifle shooters a great opportunity to improve their skills further.”
