We are a friendly club with facilities for shooting most types of firearms from air rifles to full bore rifles – including muzzle loading pistols, long-barrelled pistols and black powder revolvers.
The club has 2 x 5-lane, 25 yard indoor ranges. These ranges are approved for shooting air rifles and pistols, small bore rifles, pistol calibre carbines, long-barrelled pistols and muzzle loading pistols/rifles. Any other firearm that meets the range safety certificate limits can also be used – (see club rules or contact a committee member for further clarification).
Full bore rifle shooting is conducted at Altcar Rifle Range – an RFCA (formerly Territorial Army) rifle range near Southport. These events normally take place on a Sunday (see Altcar 2016 page for more detail).
