About Coulter Lane Shooting Range

Coulter Lane Shooting Range is a family run business and was established in 2006 on Coulter Lane Farm. The shoot was formerly known as the Drill shoot and held at the local Drill Pub until relocated to its current location. 

The shoot is located in rural Burntwood between the beautiful cathedral city of Lichfield and the scenic Cannock Chase, an area of outstanding natural beauty and we are surrounded by several individual pubs and eateries which are always worth a post-shoot visit. 

We are a friendly and welcoming shoot and encourage all ages and abilities to visit us. For beginners to the sport, we can offer tuition and guidance and for the more advanced shots, with a wide range of traps we provide an array of challenging and technical targets.   The safety of all of our visitors is paramount and we ensure that all of those attending know our shoot safety etiquette.

What We Do

Clay Pigeon Shooting

The clay pigeon shoots are held fortnightly on a Sunday, they start at 11.00 am to 1 pm and are open to all abilities, families and well behaved dogs are of course welcome to watch.  See Forthcoming Dates below for the upcoming shoot days. 

We have a large variety of sporting traps which can simulate anything from a bolting rabbit to a long distance pheasant thrown from the high tower.

The layout and number of targets is changed every time to keep the shoot interesting for the many regulars. English Sporting is a very sociable discipline as you walk from stand to stand with your friends.

We also often add a Compaq to the layout or a Flush trap.  For those with a competitive nature, friendly competitions are often held with a variety of prizes

Corporate and Private Events

Coulter Lane Shooting Range can provide corporate and private events for groups with a minimum of 8.  The morning, afternoon or evening bespoke event can be tailored specifically to the group attending, refreshments and / or breakfast is available at the shoot venue and we can arrange a meal at one of our lovely local pubs.  We can also supply the guns and cartridges as required.

These events can be arranged throughout the year so please do contact us for more details.

Lessons

We have a BASC trained instructor available for one lesson or a course of lessons, from complete beginners to just perfecting technique to helping you to choose a gun that fits and assisting with applying for a gun licence.​

Rules & FAQ

There is no official etiquette on what to wear but we recommend comfortable clothes that don’t restrict movement and are suitable for the weather. A shoot vest or a top with padding on the shoulder will aid gun fit and gun mount. Footwear should be based on the weather,wellies are good for wet weather and walking boots, trainers or comfortable footwear in the dry weather. Deep pockets are useful to carry cartridges in if you do not have a cartridge bag or a small sports holdall.

All clay shooters need to wear eye protection. There are many types of variable tint glasses on the market which help to pick out the clays.

Ear protection is a must.  Whether disposable ear plugs, high end digital headphones or moulded ear plugs.  It is important that the hearing protection fits comfortably and does not impede gun mount otherwise bad habits may be developed.

Air Rifle Range

Our air rifle range has recently opened and we welcome everyone regardless of experience.  It is open with the clay pigeon shoot Sunday fortnightly as the dates below show or is available for pre- booked mornings or afternoons 7 days a week either individually or for groups. There are various zeroing and plinking targets and some all-weather covered firing points. Bring your own gun or hire one from us, there is ample free parking.
