excellent ground to shoot at

Been shooting at Kibworth for a number of years, and it has been consistently one of the best grounds I have ever visited.
The staff without exception have been friendly and knowledgeable.
The gun shop has a good stock of new and used guns, plenty of choice of cartridges and all the accessories that we shooters find to spend money on.
The targets are well thought out.. good use of the terrain and vegetation to provide a challenge.
The traps are well maintained - I have been in a squad of 6 shooting 100 birds each, and had nil no birds!

If you are looking for somewhere new to try, I would not hesitate to recommend this ground.

A Great Ground "Under new Management" - Well worth a visit/revisit

I have been a member at Kibworth Shooting Ground for 5 years +. a small group of us shoot "Sporting Clays" every Saturday morning... followed by a coffee and something to eat in the Cafe.
The Business was sold in Sept 2018, with the new owners investing in the ground. Signage, fencing, stands and traps are being replaced/renewed with plans to modernise and refresh the Reception and shop.
The ground appears to be benefiting from the new owners cash injection/vision, it seems busier and has again started to hold competitions.
I have always found the ground to be friendly, inviting and "safe" therefore I'm unable to reconcile my experiences with those shared by MaxW-48, I would however always recommend reporting any observed unsafe behaviour to the ground staff (this relates to any ground) if you feel uneasy challenging such yourself.
Like many grounds there is no requirement to sleeve your gun between stands, Semi Auto's are safe but should be Carried unloaded and "flaged".

fun and easy going

Iv'e been a member now for almost a year and i have to say this is a great ground with a friendly
reception and great couches if you are a beginner or just need help with a problem stand.
its got a nice small cafe that does hot and cold food and a small gun shop that does everything you
need for shooting , shotgun or airgun ( they have air gun ranges ). the only reason they don't get
5* is sometimes the chap behind the gun counter can be a little rude and not make you feel welcome ,
also the shop is small but the ground has new owners now so hopefully these little niggles will get

Unprofessional and unsafe

This place is a joke don't waste your time with the gun shop the staff are rude and unhelpful. Kibworth shooting grounds do not appreciate your money, also there is a total disregard for safety by a good few members by way of pointing semi auto shotguns at people while walking around the grounds I have to say I felt unsafe while I was there and this kind of thing needs to be addressed before someone ends up getting hurt or much worse. You would think they would take safety more serious after finding a body on the grounds a few years ago.

Buy from a better gun shop

Shocking customer service, from being ignored when I was wanting to buy an expensive gun to being spoken to like I was not welcome nor worthy. I cannot express how unhelpful the women behind the shop counter was it is certainly not the way to run a business.

Well done kibworth gun shop keep up the outstanding work.
