Hi Robbo,
I'm sorry to say that there are no Air Gun Clubs in Brum that I know of & I have looked! asad.gif
But good news, the 49th Rifle & Pistol Club in Saltley, a Full Bore club is going to be starting a Air Gun section with a underground 30 yard Range, so I've been told anyway.
In the mean time you can take your Air Gun to the Hockley Shooting Club & for a princely sum of 5 you can shoot on a 25 or a 50 yard range, but be aware you could be shareing the ranges with .38s or .44s & may have to wear ear defenders.
Alternately you can travel up the M6 20 miles or so to my Club Millride FTC, details of which you can get by clicking my signature.
Where abouts in Brum are you anyway?

If I remember correctly there used to be one at the Trplex years ago off Witchall Lane but I'm certain it went when it was taken over by Pilkinsons. Other than that it's beer cans in the back garden mucker!
Seriously though, if you fancy giving Millride a go one Saturday PM me & we can arrange something.
