A really good fun experience with a small group of friends or family - maybe 6 max. at a time but you have 3 different shooting experiences so could share and swap. We shot air rifles in a long range, with targets and other animal models to aim for. Then BB pellet guns at a variety of cans, pots and discs; then a video simulator with a LOAD of games and scenarios from clay pigeons to cowboy streets to wild boars. Great fun, all very safe and a different, but enjoyable experience. Thank you. Will recommend to others.

Something different which was surprisingly stress relieving, staff were friendly and more than happy to talk through any questions at each range and made for a thoroughly enjoyable experience for a complete novice like myself. Would happily go back again and again.

What to do in Torbay in January on a Mum and daughter break? We visited Crack Shot. Such good fun, something we could compete against each other with equal status. Staff really helpful and explained how to use the guns and interactive screen games clearly so we could get the most from our visit. We opted for the rifle range, shotgun range and interactive games and would recommend this to any mixed age (adult/teen) groups. It is slightly off the beaten path but still easy to find.

Well I went for a shooting day on their range and was actually quite full when I arrive I did met David upstairs (I hope is the right name) I did a few shoots and then he help me improving my accuracy by recommending a different pellet brand and it WORKS!!
Basically I did enjoy it but I was bored after 30min because is not many targets to shoot at in my opinion could do with more targets to keep us busy shooting ...
Is an amazing shop and from all the people I talked in there David was the more kindest and pleasant person always happy to help and advice....
Please don't take my review destructive is a nice place to be but could do with an improvement....

Travelled down to Crackshot from Taunton to purchase a pistol. I had in mind four options, which was quickly narrowed down to two after I was given the opportunity to 'handle' the guns.
After detailed description and advice and a trial firing, I selected the one I preferred.
I consider myself to be a reasonably seasoned rifle shooter, but was given all the help and (most important) time I needed.
I'm sure I will be back, it's worth the run down the motorway.
Quality service, quality product. Thanks James.

Ignored at Reception for several minutes but then processed efficiently although not possible to distinguish staff from customers.
Went upstairs to ranges and were well received and instructed by staff member who was always present to deal with queries. Rifle range good but pistol range disappointing as most targets are static and give little reaction to being hit. Needs tin cans and discs dangling from a bar.
Finally tried the simulation area. Given mumbled instructions by a member of staff who clearly would rather be somewhere else. Fortunately my teenager worked out how to operate the games console. Only 20 minutes in this area but good fun and worth the extra cost.
