    There are a few Welsh boys on here, try contacting them.
    Someone like Kev Hughes, Gazo or Sparky might be able to point you in the right direction.
    Be carefull of Sparky though, he suffers with majour PMS when it gets close to an hft event.

    It depends on what sort of shooting club you're after.

    Quarry Hunters meet near Blackwood on Sundays and shoot HFT courses and informal plinking.
    First visit is free.
    For me it's a 45mile trip but well worth it.
    Keen HFT'ers from all over travel there.
    It is after all one of the homes of UKAHFT.

    Quarry Rifles meet on Saturdays and they're an FT club.

    Swansea Rifle Club covers has indoor and outdoor ranges (outdoor range open Monday eve and Saturday am).
    They're predominantly an FAC club but there are air rifle and air pistol sections as well.
    They are looking to start up an FT or HFT section. They haven't decided yet.
    Good place to learn about using and loading firearms.
    Indoor 25m range excellent for setting up guns in bad weather.

    There are gun clubs of various kinds all over South Wales though they're not all easy to find at first.

    As WILBA says there is the Tondu club near "Knees", they shoot mainly FT.

    Have a look at our site mate Quarry Hunters
    We have members from allover , some members travel from Wiltshire so it must be a good club

    As said before first visit is free so come along and have a go on a HFT course.

    You obviously have it in for Sammie as much as Pete does, because she doesn't deserve a mention despite travelling all the way from Sussex.......

    Death by a thousand jokes for you boyo....
