Insights Air Range
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.
Safe shooting is our top priority. All visitors new to air rifle shooting will need to follow a short induction session prior to using one of our 12 fantastic Walther Rotex RM8 PCP (pre-charged pneumatic) air rifles for the first time.
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 excellent Walther Rotex RM8 PCP air rifles, or bring their own PCP or spring powered air rifle(s). 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 (drop down, bells, cans...) as well as 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 £5 per hour for shooters who have their own gun(s) or £10 when hiring one of our Walther Rotex RM8 PCP air rifle bundles (including 4 target cards and 100 pellets), with block booking discounts available on weekdays.
Visitors under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a responsible adult over the age of 21
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
