    postition

    The problem i find with clubs is there is never any near me and if there is one they are always out in the country and without transport i cant get to them.

    If anyone knows of any airgun clubs near my village (Cuxton) please pass them on i know there is a great looking club in Maidstone but its out of my range without transport i could get a train but that would cost and then its too far from the station to walk.

    A long shot i know but does anyone live near me and visits an airgun club regularly and could possibly give me a lift to share petrol money etc.
    I live on a boat moored in Cuxton, Kent.

    Unhappy Scotland

    Just moved to Glasgow and the only place able to offer me 10m olympic pistol is Bearsden and then only on a Friday, I sure do miss East Bristol...

    Anyone know of any dedicated 10m ranges up here? I would gladly travel to Edinburgh if necessary

    Drop into your local gun shops, they should be only to happy to advise, If there a decent customer focused shop they will have details of local clubs as it's members will form part of their customer base.

    Several (perhaps surprisingly). Look at the NSRA Club Finder. Phoenix (New Cross), East Barnet, Roding, Witan (Blackfriars) would probably all class as Central and East.

    Couldn't suggest other clubs specifically. Is there no one else at the club that would want to shoot any other time? A lot of clubs have their official opening times, but members will arrange quietly amongst themselves if they want or need to shoot at other times. My club is ostensibly open mostly evenings, but some of the retired members and members who work shifts come down odd weekday mornings to do cards quietly, especially if they're also club instructors who tend to be called on to do coaching in the evenings when novices are in and don't always get the quiet time they deserve to get on with their own shooting.
