As a Home Office approved club, we are able to accept applications from people who do not hold a Firearms Certificate. Being a responsible club, we make every effort to ensure that our prospective members are fit and proper people to hold a Firearm Certificate and our application procedure will necessarily involve some questions to help us verify that. (All in accordance with currant Firearms Legislation) A Probationary Membership and accredited training program will apply, until you are considered competent for Full membership, with free use of Club Firearms for your training etc., paying only for the ammunition used.
You will then be able to apply for your own Firearms certificate if you wish, with help on the procedures involved, being available.
It will also be necessary to have a Safe Shooter assessment done by the Club and be issued with a Safe Shooter Card, assuming all goes well. This is a Mandatory requirement for all who shoot on MOD Ranges & can only be available to Full Members of the club.
A new system via the NRA has been introduced for 2019, as all paper cards will expire at end of December 2018. Please see details below & the Revised Membership Renewal Form.
The NEW system will involve the club you are a member of, passing your name & address etc., along with the type of firearms to be used, along with a current passport Photo, to the NRA. They will then issue your Safe Shooter Card direct to the club member. All this with your written consent, in order to comply with Data Protection.
This is very important, as if you do not comply, you will not be able to shoot unsupervised on MOD Ranges in the UK. This has to be done by end of 2018.
If you think you would like to join us or find out more about shooting activities in general, please email the Club Membership Secretary with your name, address and telephone number and you will be contacted.
Thank you for your interest in the club.
