Information about the club
We are a private members-only target shooting club, managed on behalf of the membership by an elected General Committee, comprising Chairman, Treasurer, General Secretary and the Captains and officers of the various shooting sections.
The ranges comprise of:
An indoor 25 yard range for .22 precision rifles, air rifles & pistols and sporting .22 rifles.
Outdoor ranges for .22 precision rifle, pistol calibre carbines and muzzle loading rifles and pistols.
A 100 yard/50 metre range for .22 prone rifle shooting only.
For all new members, the club operates a six month probationary period during which novice shooters will receive one-to-one tuition on the safe handling and discharge of firearms and range safety. This applies also to new FAC holding members who are not experienced in a target shooting club environment.
Probationary members are expected to attend at least 12 shooting sessions during the six month period, and must demonstrate a commitment to the club's activities and ethos.
The club has its own firearms for members' use on club premises. All shooting is conducted under the supervision of range officers.
We are required by law to submit the names and full details of all new, probationary and full members to Essex Police Headquarters, together with records of members' shooting attendances.
