"My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed clay shooting in the canyon! It's a beautiful setting and the course was fun (great mixture of easy to challenging). Our instructor, Gino, was absolutely amazing! He was very personable, knowledgeable, & clearly outlined safety rules. We couldn't have had a better experience! I would recommend Red's Fly Shop to my friends in Seattle- it's worth the drive over to Ellensberg! :)."-heather
"It was a surprise gift for my daughter 18th bday and she loved it. The staff was amazing and very knowledgeable. We were all first time shooters and they made us feel very safe and comfortable. I have recommended others to come for the experience and we will soon return for classes.."-Leomise A.
"Wear a shirt with sleeves and closed toe shoes. The shells are hot. This was a lot of fun and a great learning experience for a first time shooter. We are all looking forward to taking the next class with this instructor.."-Paul B.
"I purchased this groupon as a Valentines gift for my boyfriend since he had never shot a gun before (and he can’t date a Texas gal without shooting at least once! Haha) It was a great experience! The instructors were helpful - no question was a stupid question - and made sure everyone was comfortable. The class portion lasted about 45 minutes and the rest of the time was on the range.."-Ceara L.
"Blake is a great trainer, host and a world class player expert in the clay shooting world! He ensures that a serious topic of guns being used by novices like us (a group) was taken up in a cool and calm environment. After training, he stood by our side till we were comfortable and then gave us enough space and time to enjoy the activity as a whole ! Definitely recommended !."-Ashutosh K.
"This outing was just for my 11 year old son who had never seen a real gun. I wanted him to know everything out guns. Not only did they teach him all the parts of a gun, but taught him how to stand and grip when firing. My son shot all calibers of handguns but also a shot gun. The owner is so very patient and was absolutely amazing with Susan a young student. I wholeheartedly recommend 5 Arrows.."-Rachel R.
Education is key, especially if you’re thinking about buying a gun. While having a gun nearby makes some people feel safer, it does nothing to keep you safe if you don’t know how to safely use it. Gun owners should always keep three rules in mind: always keep the gun pointed in a safe direction, always keep your finger off the trigger until you’re ready to shoot, and always keep the gun unloaded until it’s ready to use. You’ll also learn how to clean and care for your gun properly so you can keep it shiny and new for years to come.
