Only probationary or full members of our onsite firearms club can use our .22 Rimfire range.
Our 25 yard Rimfire Range has a fully electric target recall system, along with steel and concrete benches and LED lighting.
The range is also home to our Home Office approved firearms club which is both NSRA & NRA affiliated, giving us the ability to book MOD ranges and the ranges at Bisley for longer range full bore shooting.
The probationary period for new members is 6 months, although this can be reduced for current F.A.C holders (at the discretion of the safety committee).
If you're interested in joining, please contact our shop staff to arrange a visit to the range. After a tour of our facilities you can fill out our membership form which is then submitted to the Police. Your details are then placed on our waiting list.
If you do not hold a firearms certificate, the law requires that you complete a probationary period of membership, in which time you will receive training in both safety and marksmanship to a required safe standard. The club has a minimum probationary period of six months for anyone that does not hold a firearms certificate.
If you are interested in applying for membership, please call our shop staff on 07561 844526 so that we can arrange for you to visit the club. After being shown around, if you decide that you would like to apply for membership, you will be asked to fill in an application form.
