Put down the PS4 controllers. Step away from the Xbox. Turn off your gaming PC. You’re on a stag do, gentlemen, and the only sniper fire you’re laying down is real.
That’s right, gents. Using bolt-action, bipod-balanced air rifles, you’ll be taking aim at targets in a purpose built sniper range. The weapons are solid and powerful, and the sight and sound of a pellet taking the centre out of a target is way better than anything you’d get from Call of Duty!
We’ll take you to a fantastic outdoor action centre near Harrogate (that’s a short drive away from York), where you’ll be locked and loaded with state of the art air-powered beasts. After a quick instruction course and a safety drill, the boys are turned out onto the range to show what they’ve got!
Lying in the classic commando position, centre your sights on the target. Adjust for elevation, breathe in and exhale very slowly. As you reach the end of the breath, gently squeeze the trigger. You’ll feel like Edward Fox in Day of the Jackal, only better because no-one’s going to burst into the room and take you out before you assassinate the president of France.
A surprisingly adrenaline-filled addition to your stag do in York, sniper range shooting is guaranteed to get the blood racing. How lethal are you?
