A Private members club by invatation only.
The club was formed in the early 1980’s by a group of air gun enthusiasts. They started their shooting at a disused quarry on Merseyside. Gradually over the years the club has increased in size to what it has become today, we then moved to our new shooting ground a few miles away in Cronton where we still meet every Sunday for a friendly shoot & a chat.
We are a small & friendly club, and are situated in Cronton, a small village near W
The club offers two courses within the woodland areas. Each course containing challenging targets at varying distances ranging from 10 - 80 yds. The deciduous trees offer perfect cover from most of the rain, & sunshine, depending on the weather!!
Targets are a normal resettable knockdown style that fall when hit, with a hit zone size ranging from 25mm to 45mm. These can be placed at varying distances but the maximum distance must not exceed 80 yards and a minimum distance must be no closer than 10 yards. The targets may be partially obscured by flora but must be shoot-able and with out danger from ricochets. A minimum of 50% of the hit-zone must be visible from the shooting position.
The club is open to shooters of all ages & experience. Parking is on hard - soft ground,weather dependant!! Friendly & expert advice is always readily available.
At the club you will meet fellow shooters whose ages range from 14 - 70yrs, who will be only too pleased to help you in this fast & growing popular sport of air gun shooting.
