Legal requirements

All forms of shooting are closely regulated & as a full bore rifle club  we have to abide by current firearms legislation & Home Office rules. Additionally, we apply NRA rules in the way we operate the  range & MOD rules when shooting on military ranges. Together with the club’s Constitution & Bye Laws these regulations dictate the  requirements for individuals wanting to join the club.

Joining as a novice

For individuals without a firearms licence & little or no shooting experience the  path to membership is: 1. Attend the range as a guest & observe. 2. If interested, become a probationer member by completing the necessary forms  & paying the appropriate fee. 3. Undertake a 6 month probationary period of training & supervised shooting. 4. Following a satisfactory probationary period apply for full membership which enables unsupervised shooting with a club rifle & is grounds for applying to your local police force for a firearms licence & thence to purchase your own rifle. If successful a joining fee is payable.

Joining as an experienced shooter

For individuals with a firearms licence &/or membership of a recognised fullbore  rifle club the path to membership is: 1, Attend the range as a visitor with proof of status & trial shoot. 2, If interested, become a probationer member by completing the necessary forms  & paying the appropriate fee. 3. Undertake a 3 month probationary period. 4. Following a satisfactory probationary period apply for full membership. If successful a joining fee is payable.

Junior membership

We accept juniors from 12 years to under 18 years of age. Juniors must be accompanied by an adult  & sponsored for junior membership by their legal guardian. Juniors shoot under supervision at all times & are not eligible to apply for probationary membership until they reach the age of 18 years.
No. 2 sentry point - on the hill, behind & above the stop-butt
Regretfully, we are unable to accept any further applications this year due to an exceptionally long waiting list.
