WHO ARE WE?Our mission at Break One is to share our passion for Clay Target Shooting. As a family run business, it’s important to us that we continue to provide the best experience in a sport that we enjoy. We pride ourselves on offering a unique and action-packed activity to visitors and locals alike, which all walks of life can enjoy! With over 12 year’s experience, Break One Clay Target Sports has grown from what was a ‘hobby’ to introducing over 5000 people a year to our favourite sport.
WHAT IS CLAY TARGET SHOOTING?Clay target shooting is the art of shooting at special flying targets known as clay targets or clay pigeons with a shotgun. These are thrown from a ‘trap’ or machine and come in a variety of forms simulating the flight of a duck or pheasant or the run of a rabbit.
WHY SHOOT WITH US?Here at Break One Clay are lucky enough to call Queenstown Hill our home – boasting spectacular views of Coronet Peak and Lake Wakatipu, we truly are in a ‘remarkable’ place! We are only 15 mins from Queenstown’s Centre. On top of this are also one of the very few providers of clay shooting with full instruction, no experience necessary.
EXPERT INSTRUCTORSExperienced instructors shoot competitively themselves, having years of experience shooting clays, and are able to offer expert one-on-one tuition and coaching to ensure everyone hits a target!
EXPERT EQUIPMENTThe use of Beretta 12 gauge semi-automatic shotguns, with low recoil ammunition and a special stock (or end of the gun) dramatically reduces any recoil. Our guns are designed to fit and work well for any level of shooter.
Meet the team
A shooter from way back, I grew up in a small rural town. Fast forward a few years and I was a jet boat driver in Queenstown, enjoying the thrills that come from happy customers on a fun ride in the 80’s. After multiple business ownerships, the purchase of an ‘expensive hobby’ happened – a business where I could mix work and play – welcome to Break One!
What I do when I’m not at the range:
My limited spare time is usually spent with Break One’s mascot Oak, the family Chesapeake Bay Retriever, or in the man shed engineering!
Why I love working at Break One:
I love meeting and being with new people every single day
