About Insights Air Range


Insights Air Range is a friendly all-year, all-weather, 10-metre, 12-lane indoor range for air rifles under 12 ft lbs and air pistols under 6 ft lbs.

The range first opened in July 2019. Situated on the Chilton Industrial Estate, just south of Ferryhill, it is only a short drive from Durham City, Bishop Auckland, Newton Aycliffe, Sedgefield and Darlington.

Safe shooting is our top priority. All new visitors will need to follow a short induction session prior to using the range facilities.

All shooters, without exception, will be required to sign our Firearms Act 1968 declaration prior to being given access to the shooting area.

Shooting lanes are supervised by fully trained Range Conducting Officers (RCO) who are on hand to offer safety advice or training, should the need arise.

Visitors can either hire one or more of our rifles/pistols, or bring their own. Please note that all new air rifles to the range will be "chronoed" on first use to ensure they are below the 12 ft lbs legal limit.

We have several different targets (spinning, bells, cans...) as well as a wide selection of custom paper targets, perfect for zeroing your gun.

All 12 shooting lanes are equipped with their own dedicated target retrieval system.

Most shooting disciplines are available. The range has something for everyone, whether you are a serious shooter, or just want a bit of occasional plinking.

Visitors are always welcome at Insights Air Range. Range fees start at £6 per hour for shooters who have their own gun(s) or £11 when hiring one of our Walther Rotex RM8 PCP air rifle (including 5 target cards and 100 pellets), with block booking discounts available on weekdays.

Contact the range on 07368 69 30 30 or message us via Facebook for further details.

Due to conditions applicable to our Public Liability Insurance, all children must be 8 years or older to shoot at the range, and accompanied by a responsible adult over the age of 21.

Please note:

The enjoyment and safety of all members and visitors is our absolute priority.

Any shooters putting the safety of others at risk will kindly be asked to leave the range at once, without refund!
