Joining details

So, you're interested in joining our club?

Firstly - you are very welcome. However, please note that we are a member only club and do not offer taster sessions. This is to comply with current Firearms legislation and the terms of our insurance policy, which only covers members. To shoot you would need to become a Probationary member.

So, to continue, these are the initial requirements of membership that you need to be aware of:

All new members are required to attend an Induction Course before shooting. There is a probationary period of at least 3 months. This is something that is a legal requirement for non Firearms Certificate holders and is required by the club for all applicants. The probationary period will not be an exact 3 months as all applications for full membership have to be approved by the club committee and that will depend on the date of the next available committee meeting. Your probationary period can be extended by the committee if they think fit.

A membership application form can be downloaded from the club documents page, or one can be picked up in the clubhouse. You will also need to supply one passport size photo and the requisite probationary joining fee(as listed at the bottom of this page)The completed form, photograph, and probationary joining fee must go to the membership secretary and needs to be left in the grey document box in the clubhouse, preferably on a Sunday morning, when the club is always open.

At the time of your visit, the club is able to accept card payments of the joining fee - if you use this method, please mark your application form that you have paid by card, before depositing the form and photo in the grey post box.

During your visit, there is a need for your application to be countersigned by a committee member after sight of some form of identity that proves who you are and where you live. A passport or photo driving licence would be more than adequate. Do not leave your application form without ID verification and countersigned by a committee member.

 By completing and handing in your application form you will then be insured under the clubs insurance policy effected through the NSRA.

Once your membership application form has been received, you will be contacted by the Membership Secretary, preferably by Email when you will be asked to attend an Induction course at the club.

PLEASE ensure that you complete your application form correctly and legibly, as we have had examples of:
Incorrect or ineligible home addresses.
Incorrect or ineligible email addresses.
incorrect or ineligible phone numbers
Application forms that have not been countersigned by a committee member.

During the induction course, a shooting record form will be made up for you and you will be issued with a membership swipe card. The card is to be worn during all visits and is used to record your attendance at the ranges. It's full use will be explained at the induction course.

There is an 'Introduction document' in PDF format, which can be downloaded from the documents page on this website. It provides a précis of information about our ranges and the various shooting disciplines.

You will also find, posted in the clubhouse, a set of range rules and these must be adhered to - please read them, as they are important. They can also be found in PDF format on the club documents page.
