Why we started.......
The club ultimately owes its existence to airgun and accessories dealer Edward Ramsbottom who owns and supports the web based bulletin board known as AirgunBBS. The club was directly formed in response to a suggestion made by BBS member, and subsequent first Club Secretary, Geoffrey Davies in February 2007. The suggestion came in the wake of difficulties encountered when trying to book the Bisley range for firearms users of airgunBBS. Previously, BBS firearms users had met informally several times, mostly at Minsterley ranges in Shropshire.
The object of the Club is to provide instruction and practice in the safe use of firearms to any of Her Majesty's subjects so that they will be better fitted to serve their country in the Armed Forces, Territorial Army or any other organisation in which their services may be required in the defence of the realm in times of peril, and in the pursuit of the sport of Competitive Target Shooting.
The Club is concerned to promote a positive viewpoint on all legitimate shooting sports, including the use of firearms for hunting, the importance of accurate shooting and the encouragement of the safe use of firearms.
The Club is concerned to promote the enjoyment of shooting sports throughout the UK and is concerned to develop the social aspects of shooting sports.
