Individual safety certificates

As of the 1st Jan 2009 all civilians shooting on MOD ranges will have to carry a safety certificate certified for each type of firearm you use. for more information follow this link

High Muzzle Energy

If you plan to shoot a rifle with a High Muzzle energy (HME) you will have to zero every time you wish to shoot. HME is any rifle shooting ammunition that exceeds 4500J. if you share a rifle all shooters must zero, if you shoot different batches of ammunition you will have to zero with each batch. For more information follow this link

HME Training
Training notes are on the HME page all persons wishing to shoot or have HME on their safety certificate must download and print a copy of the training notes and zeroing target and bring them to the range. the training record will have to be filled in and retained by the club

Small Ballistics software

With the introduction of a limit of 4500 joules of muzzle energy on MOD ranges it is imperative that all members know what their ammunition is producing. You can download a free ballistics program that will do the calculations for you.

Guest Fees

Guest / Visitors fees are to rise. Pistol and rifle is £20 from the 1st Jan 2017

For the use of members only

Guests and visitors

A guest is someone that does not have a firearm certificate; they may shoot on recognized guest days. That is the days that the club announces as guest days and informs the police in advance. By law the club can have a maximum 12 guest days a year. All guests must be sponsored and accompanied by a full member of the club, who is ultimately responsible for the guest. The club secretary must be notified 48 hrs in advance in writing using the appropriate guest form.

A Visitor is someone who has a current firearms certificate and a current safety certificate signed by their club chairman, or by the NRA. Visitors can attend any shoot day if invited by the club secretary 48 hrs in advance, they must be sponsored by a full member of the club, a visitor’s form must be submitted to the club before any visitor may shoot. If the holder of a current firearms certificate does not have a safety certificate issued by a club or the NRA then they will not be classed as a visitor but a guest and may only attend guest days.

It is the responsibility of deer and vermin shooters who are not members of a target shooting club and who wish to shoot on MOD ranges to arrange their own safety certificates.

Severnside range is non MOD so a safety certificate is not needed and visitors may attend without being in possession of a safety certificate.

Guests and Visitors shooting on MOD ranges must be over 16 years old

The fee for a Guest or visitor is £20 from 1st Jan 2017

 

I have added both guest and visitor forms for download
A guest is someone that is NOT in possession of an F.A.C. and may only attend on official guest days.
A visitor is someone that has a valid F.A.C. and may attend any range date that the club secretary has given his permission for the visitor to attend.
In both cases the forms must be submitted by a full member and be in the possession  of the club secretary 48 hours before the range date attended.  forms  submitted on the day will not be accepted and guests or visitors will not be allowed to shoot.
