About Us

This site, hopefully, should enable you if you are interested in any shooting sport. Whilst we wish to help promote our club with its long history, in these hoplophobic days, we feel it is in the interest of all concerned to be active to some degree in as many areas as possible. Currently we have a 10 metre air pistol, 25 yard prone indoor and 3 position indoor and standing Light-weight Sporting Rifle. Outdoor we have a 50m and 100yd range, which is also rented to other clubs and associations for competitions. We are also pleased to be assisting the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (B.A.S.C) with their regional shooting education classes and proficiency tests. When I first started to shoot there was snobbery and a reluctance to accept young or inexperienced shooters, which unfortunately is still common today. Young shooters, no matter which genre of the sport they decide to participate in are the future of our sport and should be assisted in any way possible. To this end we do all we can to help new shooters with advice or supply contacts to those who have the required knowledge. In the links area you will find a political link (more as they become known). Gun issues affect all of us in the shooting sports and our sport is ultimately governed not by the B.A.S.C, Countryside Alliance (C.A.), N.R.A, C.P.S.A or N.S.R.A. but by the politicians of the day. However, none of these and other organisations can do anything without your active support. If you own a gun make your voice heard by contacting your M.P. and more importantly, supporting one or more of the associations fighting for your chosen sport. For details of a club near you contact the National Small-bore Rifle Association, e-mail: info@nsra.co.uk
