The 23rd November 2014 shoot originally was for friends only but as soon as the date was set the word spread quickly.  The event sold out with 30 guns booked three weeks pre event.

It was then that the fun of Glad Rags and Cartridge Bags began.

Over 355 individual ladies have shot with Glad Rags & Cartridges Bags in the past 3 1/2  years.

Below are some of our events

February Fun at Raemoir House Hotel

This was Jaynes first experience of Glad Rags and Cartridge Bags

‘Do you fancy coming shooting, just up the road from you at Raemoir House, just ladies?’ asked my friend. ‘Hmmmmmmmmm!’ says I. ‘Ok I will give it a go’. Well to say I had a fantastic day is an understatement. We arrived to coffee and bacon rolls, a very good start! Then out into the sunshine to meet Ian our instructor. A nicer, more patient man you couldn’t wish to meet. I have never shot before, so when my turn came around it turns out that although I am right handed, my ‘master eye’ is my left one so I should shoot left handed! Took a while to get used to and I only hit three clays out of my first ten. Seven out of my next ten and nine out of my last ten! I was so competitive, no idea where that came from!! The buzz you get when a clay shatters is amazing and I think it could be quite addictive! There was such a mix of ladies and all so friendly. Being a newby I was made to feel very welcome by everyone. Lunch was served after we had all finished shooting and there was much chat around the table, where we decided it was great to do something a bit different and meet new people.  I can’t wait until I can go again. I cannot recommend Glad Rags and Cartridge Bags highly enough. Thank you so much for a fantastic day.
