Training in safe fireams handling, range safety and basic marksmanship is mandatory for new/novice members only for the purpose of target shooting as a sport. The club has its own firearms for members' use on club premises. All shooting is conducted under the supervision of Range Officers and under strict safety rules.
New members must satisfactorily complete a probationary period of six months, or less if the applicant can provide a suitable reference from a present or previous club and who also holds a Firearms Licence (in which case the period of probation may be less at the discretion of the General Committee)
During probation novice members (also new FAC members not experienced in a club target shooting environment) will receive one to one tuition on safe and competent handling and discharge of firearms, range safety, plus basic marksmanship training for the sole purpose of the sport of target shooting.
All membership enquiries and applications are under the jurisdiction of the General Committee.
Probationary members must make regular attendances (at least 12 visits during probation) and demonstrate a commitment to the club's activities and ethos. The probation period may on occasion be extended at the descretion of the committee.
NOTE: We are required by law to submit the names and details of all probationary and full members to Essex Police Headquarters, and also records of individual members' attendances at all shooting sessions.
