*** Covid-19 Update ***

(Updated 30th September)

In line with Government guidelines, we are open for business.

However, please note that for the safety of both customers and staff, we have had to make several important changes:

  • Unless customers are from the same household or "bubble", we are strictly adhering to the 2-metre social distancing measure at all times, or 1 metre plus mitigation. Therefore several shooting lanes will remain closed for the foreseeable future; as a consequence, we are only able to accept a limited number of shooters at any time, so ***shooting is by booking only***.

  • Due to social distancing constraints, the minimum age for new shooters is now 12 years old. Children aged 8-11 years old may still be allowed to shoot at the range as long as they are accompanied by a responsible adult over the age of 21 shooting on the next lane and able to provide additional support if necessary.

  • The maximum size for any group from the same household or "bubble" is 6 people (as per the new rule of 6).

  • Face coverings are compulsory while in the reception area. However, this is not required while shooting.

  • On arrival at the range, please wait in your car and phone to let us know you are here. We will advise when it is safe to come in, after hire rifles and shooting stations have been fully sanitised. The reception area is no longer being used as a waiting room. This measure will remain in place until further notice.

  • Block bookings are now available again on week day :-)

Advance booking can be made by contacting the range on 07368 69 30 30, or on Facebook Messenger.

Please note that advance payment will be taken by bank transfer for all bookings of 2 lanes or more.

Important information regarding prices and lane bookings:

For all bookings of 2 lanes or more, advance payment by bank transfer will be taken at the time of booking.

Payments for all bookings are non refundable in case of cancellation or no-show, unless cancellations take place at least 72 hours in advance.

Because of constraints imposed by social distancing measures at the range, the minimum age for any new customer is 12 years old, unless accompanied by a responsible adult over the age of 21 shooting on the next lane, in which case the minimum age is 8 years old.

The minimum age for pistol shooting is 14 years old without exceptions.

Please note that for safety reasons, the only type of BBs allowed at the range is the Dust Devils. Steel, plastic and copper coated lead BBs are not allowed.
