Target Shooting

General & Live Firing: Philip Diprose
Air Rifle Shooting: David Robinson – Tel: 01483 474030

Shooting requires a steady eye and steady hand but it can be an exciting expression of control and skill. A parent or guardian’s permission is specifically required on each occasion that a young person under 18 years old takes part in a shooting activity. Contact an adviser if further guidance is needed. There are facilities for air rifle shooting at the County Campsite at Bentley Copse. Contact the manager on 01483 202424 – for details of costs and availability.
