Important Announcement!

Hi Guys and Merry Xmas.
The forums theme was changed this morning to the Xmas theme, but as normal, I doubt it is showing up.
So a quick fix for this is to scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the Change Theme button, located on the bottom left.
Click that and you will be presented with 2 options, simply select the Xmas theme, if that fails, select the 2.3 sense theme and then reselect the Xmas theme.

Castleton Air Rifle Club (C.A.R.C) is situated just off the A48 between Cardiff and Newport, in the Village Hall at Castleton.

The club meets every Monday night at about 7.30pm (but we start setting up about 7-ish).

The only Mondays the club is not open is on bank holidays.

Although the club is run as a non-profit making venture, there is a small "subs" charge made, to cover the cost of hiring the hall, buy targets etc.



The range is indoors, so bad weather is not an issue.

There are 9 shooting positions, to allow You to fire at knockdown targets, paper targets, tin cans, empty shotgun cartridges etc (These positions are run on a rotational basis when the club is busy).

It is all very informal, although safety is given paramount attention at all times.

The emphasis is on fun, rather than competition, though we do hold fun competitions with a running Deer target from time to time. It is on a knockout basis, and cash prizes are awarded to both the overall winner, and the highest score of the night.......great fun!!

The shooting is only part of the benefit of the club though, as we sell discounted pellets, Co2, cleaning kits, gun cases, oils and silicone cloths, targets, etc etc in the tea break.

Tea, coffee, cold cans, sweets and biscuits are available too.

We also hold raffles a few times a year, with prizes of Rifles, pistols, scopes, gun cases or whatever.....well worth winning!!!!

Along with all the aforementioned, the best aspect of the club is the social side of it.

It is great to be amongst other shooters with similar interests, and the knowledge and advice that is gladly given is priceless.
If You are needing a spare part, then there is a good chance that someone will have one buried away somewhere.
Even shooting permissions are shared between club members....like I said, the benefits of attending the club are many-fold.

Although it is called a Rifle club, pistols are welcome too.

In-fact, any airgun is allowed, as long as it conforms to the sub 12ftlb law for rifles, and the sub 6ftlbs law for pistols. A chrono is available for power testing.

The only airguns that are not allowed are BB guns, due to the danger of ricochets.




So, if You are at a loose end on a Monday night, and fancy coming along, then You will be made more than welcome.

Hi

After many years I have just bought myself a Webley Eclipse .22. Your club sounds a perfect place for me to get back into the sport.
With your permission I would love to come and join you soon. Due to work commitments I do not know if I can make every week but would love to get involved.

I am living in Chepstow so it's only down the road for me, sounds great.

Hope to see you all soon,

Atb

Mark

No Pieman, this one is inside Castleton Village Hall.

The FT club that Pat Issacs runs is in a field just off Tyla Lane, on the A48.
That club is considered locally to be a very serious, pure FT club, but the one in the hall is geared more towards enjoying the fun and social aspect of airgunning.

hth, Gareth.

Your club sounds fantastic, Gambo, unfortunately for me a touch too far for a run out on a Monday evening.
I like the sound of the informal "fun" atmosphere.

May it go from strength to strength.
