Membership & Costs

Membership

All prospective members must complete an induction which are held at weekends, on-demand, i.e. when we have enough people to make it viable.  If you enquire, you will be directed to one of these.

At the induction you must complete a “Section 21” disclaimer to say that you are not barred from handling firearms and ammunition, by virtue of having served custodial sentence.  The induction covers legal and safety and tells you about the Club and it’s activities.  It’s followed by a chance to shoot airguns. No one can handle rimfire equipment until they have completed their probationary application.  Anyone under the age of 18 must have their application form countersigned by their parent or guardian stating that they have permission to attend the club.  

To apply for membership, you must complete a form, provide a proof of identity, and pay the application fee.  Probationary membership begins from when you complete all three of these.  After this, all applicants must complete a Probationary Membership Notification form, similar to our form, which will be sent to our Police licensing authority, Staffordshire and West Midlands.

After regular attendance for three or six months, your application is considered for approval by the Committee at the next relevant meeting.  The joining fee is deducted from the cost of membership.  

Costs

Your first visit is free apart from the cost of 0.22 rimfire ammunition.  After that there’s a range fee payable each time you shoot.  This covers targets, heating, and lighting.

If you shoot for a club team, there is nothing to pay.  Fees are paid for individual competitions.  If you want to shoot in National competitions you have to be a member of the National Small-bore Rifle Association (NSRA).

Membership is annual and runs from 1 May to 30 Apr.
