A word from our customers:

Had a great day out and could not recommend them highly enough…

Did my rifle Safety and firearms training with Ythan Field Sport Supply Ltd. Had a great day out and could not recommend them highly enough, the knowledge and experience of the instructors are second to none and the course itself was informative yet ran in such a way that the information is easy to digest. Big thanks to the lads at Ythan Field Sports.

The whole day was very professionally organised with a reassuring emphasis on gun safety throughout.

Thanks once again to Mike and Graham for a superb day out. We had asked for a package combining clay pigeon and rifle shooting for 3 people as a gift for my son's 21st Birthday. We were looking for something more in depth than the half hour sessions offered by many activity centres. Mike certainly delivered with a brilliant package that lasted about 4 hours and was great value, even before considering the unexpected bonus guns that were included. The whole day was very professionally organised with a reassuring emphasis on gun safety throughout. Mike and Graham were great instructors, patient with us first time shooters and keen to share their enthusiasm, experience and coffee and sausage rolls in their bothy at half time. A great day out that I would definitely recommend. We'll certainly be back,

A huge thank you to Mike and Davie…

A huge thank you to Mike and Davie for taking the time to make the rifle safety and firearms training as applicable to my line of work as possible. An informative, and easy going course that really introduced me (a novice) to what is required to safely handle firearms. The theory section was great and interesting, and the practice on the range both fun and informative. Both of them were very approachable and great teachers! Thank you again!

..very informative would highly recommend it.

Fantastic day yesterday with these guys doing the firearms handling and safety course very informative would highly recommend it. I’ve been a shooter for many years but really enjoyed this well worth the money if your a novice. Bit of range time as well which I don’t do enough of great way to sharpen your skills in a safe environment.
The semi automatic rimfire we had a shot of certainly put a smile on Roberts face haha
Thank you Mike and Davie

What a brilliant day

Just got back from the Rifle Safety and Fire Arms Training course with Mike and Dave at Ythan Field Sport Supply.
What a brilliant day. A really fascinating classroom input and superb session at the range with a selection of rifles and ammunition.
Mike and Dave not only know their stuff but can communicate it with clarity.
I would recommend this course without reservation.
Many thanks gentlemen.

A worthwhile course if you are thinking of taking up the sport.

I have just completed my Rifle Safety and Firearms training with Mike and Dave. I am returning to shooting after many years and felt that a refresher course would be the best first option. I did not want to get into any bad habits.
The course was just what I was looking for, going through all the safety rules on how to use and prepare any firearm.
The first part of the course was a comprehensive PowerPoint presentation on the rules and safety on and off the range, along with questionnaire at the end (to make sure I was listening) it was quite informal but very productive.
Then on to the range, at House of Schivas for a variety of calibre shooting with further tuition
A worthwhile course if you are thinking of taking up the sport
Many thanks to Mike and Dave for a very enjoyable, informative and instructive day.”

The course content and activities were far more than I had anticipated.

I selected the rifle safety/familiarisation course run by Mike and Dave as a step to building a portfolio of experience/evidence prior to applying for my own firearms license. The course content and activities were far more than I had anticipated. They put together a very detailed program followed by a considerable range of practical demonstrations and target practice in a variety of settings with various firearms. I really appreciated their close attention, patience, detailed knowledge and professionalism. As a non-native English speaker they were extremely accommodating to ensure I understood the subject matter. Mike and Dave clearly wanted to provide a professional, welcoming and supportive environment. The course is exceptional value and I came away feeling I had received a huge injection of knowledge. It was a perfect start. It gave me a lot of confidence and a hunger to continue. I look forward to going back to further my experience with the stalking opportunities that they also provide.
