Testimonials & Letters of Thanks
I've had the privilege of hunting birds and shooting sporting clays in many
parts of the world, and I can tell you that Maui Sporting Clays is one of
my very favorite places to shoot. Not only is the Hawaiian scenery
spectacular, but the course is laid out on the inside perimeter of an
extinct volcanic crater. Each stand has been carefully placed by Dave
Barnes to give shooters challenging and fun targets. But that's not the
As an internationally recognized shotgun shooting instructor, Dave offers
even experienced shooters valuable shooting techniques that will improve
their scores on any sporting clays course. So, when you're on Maui, call
Dave and arrange to shoot a round or two. He has fine shotguns available,
so you don't need to bring yours. Oh, there's one more thing you should
know.Dave is a great guy! Have fun, and Aloha!

As avid Maui tourists and shotgun sports enthusiasts, my wife and
I have had the extreme pleasure of shooting at Maui Sporting Clays
on many occasions. MSC is truly a shooting paradise. The
combination of this most unique and beautiful location and world
class instruction make visiting MSC a must do for shooters and
tourists a like. David is not only a world class instructor, he is
also an outstanding and warm host with a wealth of knowledge about
Maui and the Hawaiian Islands. Avid shooter or Maui tourist,
a visit to MSC will be one of the highlights of your visit to Maui.
Bring your camera, the scenery is second to none!

My father has played golf once in his 91 years, and I have
played twice. I WAS RAISED AT GUN CLUBS. He made it to ALL
AMERICAN status in skeet, and I still need help. We have had
the opportunity of shooting across the United States and in
several foreign countries. He believes shooting at Maui Sporting
Clays to be among his best shooting experiences anywhere.

For the experienced shooter, the proprietor, David Barnes,
(mentioned in the book of an English butcher), sets target
presentations second to none. His assistance, in addition to
his, "try and miss in front of the target", can be invaluable..
For the novice shooter, or for corporate groups, the depth of
his staff can make your introduction to the shotgun sports one
of the highlights of your trip to Maui.
For non-shooting companions, the escorted trip to the club
provides an experience available nowhere else. Suggestive of
a safari, starting from the luxurious Maui Prince Hotel at sea
level and climbing to the 1,500 foot elevation, depending on
weather, you travel through lush semi-tropical vegetation or
dry brush reminiscent of plains in Africa. The dialogue along
the way is both interesting and informative, providing details
of the history, vegetation, and animals of the area. It is not
unusual to see several game species on the trip. Upon arrival
the views from the cinder cone of an extinct volcano with the
islands of Lana'i, Kaho'olawe, and Molokini in the distance
are so spectacular they can distract your concentration.
