General Questions

Things have changed because of Covid 19 and the social distancing rules we have to follow. If you've been before, things will be very different now.

It's just £15.00 to book a lane for a session (upto 2 hours 45 minutes).

No membership fees, no charge for air refills and no hidden extras.

You don't have to stay for the full 3 hour session and you don't have to arrive at the start of the session, but the price is the same - since no one can use your booth other than you during the session.

Our minimum age is 9.

Juniors under the age of 18 MUST be supervised at all times by an adult over 21. (This is the law, not just our rule)

When you pre-book a lane at the Range and lane is yours for the whole session.

At the end of a session everyone will be asked to pack up their shooting equipment and leave the range so that the booths can be prepared ready for the next session.

Once you've booked a lane you can arrive at any time after the start of the session, but you'll need to pack up your equipment at the end of the session along with everyone else.

You can just turn up midway through a session, but we are often quite busy and there may not be a lane available for you.

We recommend pre-booking before you come up to avoid disappointment.

No, you can just book a lane and shoot - you don't even need to create a login to book.

We do have a limited membership scheme for people wanting to rent a small locker at the range, but the range fee is the same whether you have a locker or not.

The range is situated on the top floor of an old cotton mill, unfortunately we don’t have a lift and there are rather a lot of stairs. Don’t let that put you off though, we’ll do everything we can to help anyone who may have difficulty accessing the range.

Questions about our facilities and services

What facilities and services do we offer at the range

Any air rifle (under 12 ft.lbs) or any air pistol (under 6 ft.lbs) can be used on the range. CO2 powered air weapons can also be used, and there is no restriction on calibre.

Lead pellets ONLY can be used on the range - no BB's or non-lead pellets may be used at any time.

No (Section 1) air weapon requiring a Firearms Certificate may be used at the range.

Air Soft guns are not permitted at the range.

We have target holders for A4 and A3 targets at the range. They're designed for cards and thin printer paper might not hold in place too well.

We sell thick card A4 and A3 targets, but you're welcome to bring your own if you prefer. We also have plenty of reactive targets at the range.

Yes we have 300 BAR Scuba tanks at the range that you can use to fill your PCP. There's no charge for range customers.

The bottles are fitted with a female Foster (Daystate style) quick couple adapter and we have a selection of filling adapters to fit the vast majority of guns fitted with Male quick fill adapters that just click into the bottle.

We have filling adapters to fit the vast majority of rifles, but if you have something out of the ordinary, if would be a good idea to bring your fill adapter with you to the range just in case.

We're a shooting range primarily, we are also a Registered Firearms Dealer (RFD), but we don't buy 2nd hand guns.

We do sell a good selection of pellets, scopes and accessories though and you can have a gun delivered to us via an RFD transfer.

We have our own compressor at the range and we can fill 300 BAR bottles for you.

We charge £4 for bottle fills to 300 BAR, the bottle must have a valid test date. We cannot arrange a bottle test at the range, only a filling service for bottles already in test.

It can take half an hour to fill a bottle, we normally fill to 300 BAR, allow the bottle to cool down for another 20 minutes and then top the bottle back up to 300 BAR.

Gun hire and tuition

What do you offer new shooters and those wanting to improve their shooting skills

Sorry, we don't hire out guns at the range.

We do however offer a 1 hour taster session on selected days with advance booking which includes gun, ammo, targets, tuition etc.

A taster session lasts about an hour and includes the use of a quality PCP, ammo, targets and tuition.

Taster sessions are priced at £30 per person with a maximum of 2 people and only on selected days.

The minimum age for a taster session is 14 - this is because all of our taster session rifles are adult sized rifles.

Email or phone us to arrange a taster session. Taster sessions must be pre-booked in advance.

If it's just for rifle setup, help with zeroing and answering general questions, we provide this service for free every day.

We don't offer private one to one tuition, however we do occasionally run small training courses if there's enough demand.
