    My First Comp at SEAC

    Shot my first comp at SEAC on Sunday. Me Thinks to the practice range I shall go. Went round with Steve (who helped me so much last weekend) and watched as he notched up not only a very good score but more enjoyably for me made some very nice shots including a "kill" at 60+ yards.

    The comp is over 15 lanes with 2 shots on each lane at silouhette targets. Scoring is easy 3 for a kill (knockdown), 1 for a face plate shot (hit but stays up) and 0 for a miss including a few obscured targets which were kill or nothing.

    On a personal note I ended up with 32 points total to put that into context steve hit 28 on the first 15 shots
    Neve r though did I feel silly or embarassed and all the way round Steve and the more experienced guys were really supportive without being patronising and I came away from the comp to tuck into a welcome bacon sarnie knowing a lot more about myself in terms of my shooting and brimming over with new tips and hints which I will endeavour to put into practice next week.

    Great fun and watch out Steve Next time I'll wear a false beard and go round twice might be bit closer then... or perhaps not

    Castleton Air Rifle Club nr Cardiff/Newport

    Castleton Air Rifle Club (C.A.R.C) is situated just off the A48 between Cardiff and Newport, in the Village Hall at Castleton.

    The Postcode is CF3 2UW

    The club meets every Monday night at about 7.30pm (but we start setting up about 7-ish).

    The only Mondays the club is not open is on bank holidays.

    Although the club is run as a non-profit making venture, there is a small "subs" charge made, to cover the cost of hiring the hall, buying targets etc.



    The range is indoors, so bad weather is not an issue.

    There are 9 shooting positions, to allow You to fire at various knockdown targets, paper targets, tin cans, empty shotgun cartridges etc (These positions are run on a rotational basis when the club is busy).

    It is all very informal, although safety is given paramount attention at all times.

    The emphasis is on fun, rather than competition, though we do hold fun competitions with a running Deer target from time to time. It's on a knockout basis, and cash prizes are awarded to both the overall winner, and the highest score of the night.......great fun!!

    The shooting is only part of the benefit of visiting the club though, as we sell discounted pellets, Co2, cleaning kits, gun cases, oils and silicone cloths, targets, etc etc during the tea break.

    Tea, coffee, cup-a-soup, cold cans, sweets and biscuits are available too.

    We also hold raffles a few times a year, with prizes of rifles, pistols, scopes, gun cases or whatever.....well worth winning!!!!

    Along with all the aforementioned, the best aspect of the club is the social side of it.

    It is great to be amongst other shooters with a similar interest, and the knowledge and advice that is gladly given from other members is priceless.
    If You are needing a spare part, then there is a good chance that someone will have one buried away somewhere.
    Even shooting permissions are shared between club members....like I said, the benefits of attending the club are many-fold.

    Although it is called a Rifle club, pistols are welcome too.

    In-fact, any airgun is allowed, as long as it conforms to the sub 12ftlb law for rifles, and the sub 6ftlbs law for pistols. A chrono is available for power testing.

    The only airguns that are not allowed are BB guns, due to the danger of ricochets.




    So, if You are at a loose end on a Monday night, and fancy coming along, then You will be made more than welcome.

    Just wanted to say I was a member back in the early 70s and I have very fond memories of shooting there, the outside range is great. Back then members had alsorts of guns I remember one who had a black powder 45 which took ages to load and then filled the whole place with dense wonderfully smelling smoke, oh yes it blew great big holes in the targets when he managed to hit them.
