What Type of Shooting do you do?
We shoot small-bore (.22LR) rifles at our 25yard 4 lane range. We shoot prone (i.e. lying down) at card targets. It’s a precision sport – to score a perfect 10 you need to hit the target inside a half-inch diameter circle at 25 yards.
We plan to offer bench-rest shooting in future once the equipment is bought (Early 2023). This type of shooting is more suited to the less able-bodied as it is carried out in a sitting position.
What Will it Cost?
The Club's annual subscription for a senior/full member is £100 (£50.00 for under 18s). This is payable December to the Club's treasurer. There are no weekly range fee's. Ammunition costs from £7.00 for a box of 50 rounds that should last for at least 2 evenings. No other costs are involved unless you get the bug and buy all your own stuff! Then it can get very expensive! For our full membership fee's "click here"
How do I Start?
The best way to start is to come along on a shooting night, have a look around and meet the members. We're a friendly bunch who will be happy to answer any questions that you may have.
To arrange a visit, please use the email form on our Contact page. Unfortunately, due to legal restrictions (Cheshire Constabulary Clearance), you can't shoot on your first visit to the club!
When do you Shoot?
We shoot every Tuesday and Thursday 19:00-21:00. We are also open at other times by arrangement to suit people's work times and other commitments. If anyone wants to shoot outside the "normal club night hours" a range warden must be present; there are a couple of members who regularly shoot on a Wednesday morning and another couple of guys who shoot at the weekend and would be more than happy for others to join them.
How do I Become a Member?
Use the "contact" page and arrange to come along, you can see the range, the resources and equipment we have, meet some of the team and complete an application form. This will be submitted to Cheshire Constabulary for clearance; once you get the OK you can join the club as a probationary membership.
Once a probationary member has been shooting regularly for at least three months or 4-6 visits and signed off by their mentor he/she will be put forward for a full membership.
How Often do I Need to Shoot?
We do not stipulate a minimum number of visits for full members but we do expect you to attend on a reasonably regular basis. Members shooting in postal competitions need to be aware of the "shoot by" date on each card and ensure that the card is shot by the date given. As above probationary members need to attend at least 4-6 times during their probationary period.
