The Holland and Holland Shooting Grounds has opened the UK’s first indoor rifle range using the latest ‘Schiesskino’ cinematographic technology.
‘Schiesskino’ is an indoor rifle range with a 10-meter by 3-meter cinema screen located 25-meters from the firing point. Projected onto it is a variety of game scenarios including running boar. Everything from a single boar trotting across a woodland clearing to a whole sounder in full gallop. You pick your target and shoot with a rifle and full power ammunition. The bullet penetrates the screen, the film pauses for three seconds and a laser illuminates your hit and then the film rolls on. You reload and shoot twice more and the sequence is over. If you are shooting with friends, each of them would then have the same sequence, after which shooter one has a new scenario. The hard drive can store thousands of film clips of everything you are likely to want to shoot.
It is simply the best and most realistic training available and the only facility of its kind for commercial use in the UK.
We have a range of rifles and calibres available for use, including those similar to the ones you are likely to borrow when shooting abroad. Maximise your opportunities next time you are in Germany for Boar or Spain for a Monteria by practising shooting at realistically presented game. All confined within a comfortable and air-conditioned environment in our new pavilion at the Holland & Holland Shooting Grounds.
For corporate entertainment, the facility will offer the opportunity to bring clients for a few hours shooting with a variety of calibres, followed by a drink in the bar and lunch or dinner.
