BRINGING THE WILD WEST TO THE GOLD COAST

LET'S GET DIRTY

Black Powder

Using replicas of the cap and ball style pistols from the 1800s. It’s a blast – literally. Be prepared to get your hands dirty (it’s not called black powder for nothing) and to have a load of fun. You can also use a small bore rifle, with our 50-metre pistol range doubling as a .22 calibre rifle range.
