What We Do at PSC

The club is an approved Home Office target shooting club. Seeking to develop the club by enhancing the facilities and making the clubroom and ranges more accommodating for all members is our constant aim. Younger shooters and ladies are always welcome to apply for membership. Since we cannot be responsible for other people's children we ask that juniors (under 18) are accompanied at all times by a parent or guardian or a responsible adult over 21. Parents, guardians, or responsible adults need not be members but must sign in on each visit and will not be allowed to participate in any shooting unless they are members or probationary members.

We have disabled members who shoot regularly and we are constantly striving to improve our facilities for all disabled people with an interest in shooting. We have postal league competitions available for bench rest .22 rim fire. Most people can manage a sitting position with the fore-end of the rifle supported on the bench and this event has made it possible for older and disabled shooters to enter a competition on equal terms.

Clay pigeon sessions for probationers, members and their guests, are on various Saturdays throughout the year which are proving to be very popular. Practical shotgun sessions are planned to run on the purpose built range behind the butt stops, later in the year and are great fun. Anyone can have a go as we cater for 3 shot semi auto guns, unfortunately we do not have a club gun available to borrow. However other members are normally happy to lend you their shotgun.

We have a competition specifically for spring powered airguns and the scoring system was devised to ensure everyone has an equal chance of success whatever their ability. A number of members shoot gallery rifles (like John Wayne's Winchester) in postal competitions. Our 100yard range is certified for full bore rifle and many members shoot larger calibres on this range.

To join us, visit the club on the last Sunday of the month between 11am and 2pm. No appointment necessary - just turn up on the day (bring photo I.D. with you). We ask that disabled persons are given priority for spaces in the car park adjacent to the clubroom. When this is full we have an overflow car park alongside the full-bore range.
