    Club Membership Fees

    I'm interested in how much we spend to "get through the door" for shooting. Naturally prices vary, depending on whether clubs charge a range fee per visit, and the facilities available (or whether they have no range and use a county or another club's facility). As a result, the poll will be a bit of a fudge, but do your best and add context in the comments. You can also pick more than one option if you are a member of multiple clubs.

    Also, what would you consider "maximum"? Obviously that's a bit subjective and based on quality/availability of facility (some places are superb yet open once a week, others are more modest but you can get a key and go buddy-buddy shooting whenever you like), but it'd be interesting to compare ideas of what people consider a fair price for somewhere to shoot.

    My Club Membership is 150/yr with no range fees (indoor .22 25yd, 10m air, outdoor 50/100yd), and I am an Annual Member of the NSRA (84), so my annual subscriptions come to 284.
    I usually shoot at least one NSRA Open Meeting (Airgun/50m/Bisley Week), so being a member chops 20 off the entry fee, so arguably you could say I spend 264 since I'm doing that meeting anyway, not because I'm getting a discount.

    For context, other local clubs look like:

    Archery: 169 (120 Club, plus 49 Capitation collected for ArcheryGB)

    Council Gym: 350.80

    Gliding Club: 384 (334 Club plus 50 capitation for BGA) plus 8/launch and minutes (for club gliders)

    Golf: 500-1000/yr plus 20-65 Green Fees (Staffs/Shropshire, not Surrey!)

    My 2 outdoor ft ranges are 35 (Range fee 3, optional to upgrade to no range fee, think 50) and 50 no range fee.
    My indoor 25yd range is 65 plus 2.50 (I think) Range fee.

    Nsra membership which I use to cover my coaching (and will now look into for kit insurance) is 85

    I could drop the Nsra and it would therefore drop my cost per visit down.

    Max is subjective as a full ft course with 50m indoor range open 24/7 with support amenities on my door set would be worth the other 3 clubs combined at least. But how much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

    I belong to Aldersley NSRA range in Wolverhampton.
    It's 20 a year and 5 a visit.

    You need to belong to the NSRA which I believe is 85 a year.

    Facilities are pretty good. Approx 30 X 10m points. Around 8 X 6 yard points.
    All indoor. Together with a 25m Rifle range.

    There is also an outdoor range. But that is seldom used.

    There's a shop. Compressor. Boiler for tea/coffee. Plus toilets.

    Also a pretty good heater for the colder times.

    Enjoy shooting there. So lucky to be close to where I work, so a short detour on the way home a few nights a week.

    You didn't mention 5 x 10 metre firing points with target changers and a 7 firing point standing, kneeling or seated 40 metre plinking range or the coaching available.

    Annual subs 30. Outdoor range (5 acres, permanent FT and HFT, speed shoot, plinking) 1 a visit. Indoor range 20 yards bench rest and LSR 3 a visit. Free air, free tea and coffee but please bring some milk, and take your turn to get the diving bottles topped up.

    Been using a scout hut for 30 odd years one night of 3 hrs per week. 35 annual subs and 1.50 range fee for the 3hrs. However rent may double soon which will mean 50 subs and 3 range fee as that is the major revenue stream.
