Main Range Details
The main range is open at the club between the hours of 6:00am to 11:00pm any day of the week. During the evening floodlights are available for low light conditions if required. Permanent targets are setup on the main range, the Pistol and Vintage rifle range and Sponsors range.
Other targets and racks are available for use in the clubhouse. The main range has floodlighting and is covered. It has many movable shooting benches and clear firing points. There is a storage worktop along the whole facilities for members to store their shooting “gear” whilst they shoot. Extra seating, cushions or rifle stands are available for use in the clubhouse. Please return anything borrowed from the clubhouse when you have finished if they are left outside, they have a tendency to “disappear” and then the club has to pay for new ones.
Shooting can be done in all season’s weather and light conditions (dark nights).
25 Yards Bench Rest Range and 10 Yards Standing Range; If you want to focus or be out of the way for 25 yards bench rest or 10 yards standing practice the club has a separate section available next to the main range.
HFT and Prone Hut Range Details; For those who want to focus or be out of the way for HFT prone practice the club has a separate hut available next to the main range.
Plinking is a great way of meeting up with other members, having a shoot and a chat, and practicing your shooting techniques. The only thing to be careful of is that, in our experience, you can only “plink” for so long after that members find themselves drifting away from the club or getting bored.
So, if you’re getting bored don’t be frightened to try something else. Is there a competition you fancy, just ask someone if you’re not sure.
