Welcome to Gnatshoot UK


Gnatshoot UK Ltd have provided the "The Gnat", an exciting shotgun target at shooting events throughout the UK since the mid 90's.   "The Gnat" is a radio controlled delta shaped aircraft that carries 10 friction sensitive explosive pods on the underside of the wing.  These pods explode with an intensely bright flash and a loud bang when hit.

Typically "The Gnat" is shot at by a team consisting of 4/5 guns over a total of 5 alternating passes by the aircraft, each detonated pod carries a number of points for the team.  Although challenging it is possible to earn bonus points for downing the aircraft (typically the engine stops and "The Gnat" crashes).

A gnatshoot system, comprising of pilot, technician and enough targets for the event, can be hired by shooting schools, gun clubs, charity, private or corporate events, shows and private functions throughout the UK. Please see the About page for our requirements and guidelines on how we operate or give us a call to find out more......

Systems available to international customers

Testimonial - Read All

        We have enjoyed the Gnats here at Raisthorpe Manor for a number of years at our Charity Shoots. All of the guns look forward to it immensely as it provides an exhilarating alternative to clay shooting. The organisation is excellent and the backup and expertise from the GNAT team ensures that a great day is had by all !
