If you are already a shooter you should bring your gun and personal protection equipment with you, cartridges can be included in the session, or you can bring your own. If you are just starting to shoot or do not have all your own equipment this can be provided for you by your instructor.

Please come with an objective and discuss this with your instructor at the start of your session. This sets a goal for the session and means that you can work on a certain target or skill with your instructor. This also ensures that you leave the session with a sense of achievement.
