Be advised that these dates and range distances are subject to change or even cancellation as the Army and TA have preference over civilian clubs.  Please check with the MRPC Secretary before travelling.

NOTE:   If you have not attended Altcar before but wish to do so, it is imperative that you inform the Club Secretary well in advance of the proposed visit as certain administrative procedures and a mandatory Altcar briefing are required.

Morecambe Rifle and Pistol Club visits Altcar Rifle ranges about 6 times per year. This gives our members the opportunity to shoot full bore rifles, including black powder rifles at ranges between 300 and 600 yards.  The Club has its own equipment for use by club members who do not possess their own full bore rifle.

Altcar Rifle Range

The Altcar range complex is located just south of Formby.    The ranges  are unique in that they are the only major ranges owned by a Reserve Forces & Cadets Association.

From Lancaster, head south on the M6 then take the M58 at Junction 26 towards Southport.    At the end of the M58, take the new Bypass towards Formby.  Look for the Altcar Training Range signs from that point onwards.  Usual journey time by car is 1 hour 15 minutes.
