New Club in Gloucestershire

Recommended Posts

Guest Exentia

Hi all,

 

Myself and a friend may be able to set up a small air rifle range on some of his land (were still going though the details so this isnt definite) I was just wondering how much interest there would be in such a thing, we are thinking outdoor target shooting (FT/HFT) to begin with but there is scope to get an indoor range set up (if theres any outhouses free and not being used) and there is wild game on the land (pigeon, rabbit) we are not sure whether to make it a pay per shoot thing or a proper club with membership and everything (the plan was to start off small and then build up)

 

So would you be interested? were in the process of getting more details and getting stuff nailed down but just want to gauge the interest as it wont work without you guys.

A quick update - To let you know so far, My friend spoke to the land owner and hes even willing to pump some startup cash in but we have to put a proper proposal to the estates company in November so weve been put back a little time wise but its definitley still on as the land owners well into the idea, im invisioning being fully up and running literally for the new year!

 

The land owner wants a full HFT course with all the trimmings so thats a given!:)

 

What do you guys want there?

We had a nose around the possible grounds last weekend and its a little more overgrown than we thought it would be, but nothing major we have the man power and the machinery to clear the worst of it, but it does look good (bunnies about as well!) its gonna need some ground work but very promising, roll on november!

How are things progressing?

 

Are you only doing HFT? May be worth you looking at joining Wafta in doing FT? Avon hawks are south of you and their members have been doing Ft with Wafta for 20+ years.

 

All the Best.
