Deshotels Arms, Inc. is the pro shop at The Tom Lowe Trap And Skeet Range in Atlanta, Georgia, formerly known as Wolf Creek Gun Club. We cater to clay target shooting enthusiasts, especially beginners. We carry a full line of new Beretta shotguns and at the best prices in Atlanta, as well as used guns. Since we are located at a trap and skeet range, you have the opportunity to shoot some of our Beretta rental guns before making a purchase. As well as having some of the most competitive prices in the country on shotguns, we also have a full line of shooting accessories.

Tom Lowe Trap & Skeet Range

The Tom Lowe Trap & Skeet Range is a municipal trap and skeet range catering to beginners, consisting of 20 combination trap and skeet fields, and a 5-stand sporting clays field. We are open to the public and welcome first time shooters. Only shotgun shooting is allowed at our facility. We have instructors available by appointment. Their phone numbers are listed below. Everything you need to shoot can be purchased or rented at the pro shop. Eye and ear protection are mandatory. We host a Tuesday night beginners skeet league all four seasons of the year and a beginner's trap league on Sundays. The league web sites are listed to the left. We do not take reservations except for corporate or group outings.

 

Beginner Shooting Clinics Saturdays At 3:00PM

Join us for an all inclusive beginner shooting clinic at 3:00 on Saturdays. The price per person is $16.95 plus tax. This includes classroom instruction and everything you need to shoot one round of 25 targets with a group instructor. Children ten and older are welcome but they must be able to hold up a gun safely. Plan on it lasting one and a half to three hours depending on the size of the group. You must be on time to participate in the clinic.

You can still shoot at the range if you are late. We have employees running the ranges to keep you safe and answer your questions. The clinic is very helpful but not required. We have complete beginners shoot everyday.

 

Corporate Outings Or Group Outings

Schedule an all inclusive corporate outing. Great for employee outings, entertaining customers, or wedding parties. These are done by reservation on a reserved field with an experienced shooting instructor. Perfect for complete beginners or experienced shooters. The costs are $85.00 per field with an instructor (one for each group of 10 shooters) and $39.95 per shooter for up to 50 targets per shooter or two hours, whichever comes first. You can have your shooting event catered and we have a meeting room with a projector screen available for your use at no extra charge. Contact Luke to schedule an outing. (770) 241-2609

Basic Costs

One round of 25 targets is $6.75 (Multi-round discounts are available) Special price on Mondays is $4.95 per round. $9.00 to rent a gun for the day (For safety reasons, they can be shared for skeet only). Eyeglass rental is $1.00. Ear plugs are $0.55. Shotgun shells are $8.25 per box of 25.

Important

Only shot sizes 7.1/2, 8, and 9's allowed on the range or on the premises. In other words, no 00 buck, 6's, 5's, 4's, BB's etc.. We sell the proper size ammo in the proshop and at discount prices, not normal proshop prices. If you aren't sure what this means, please bring your shells to the proshop counter before going out to the range to have them inspected.
