    Looking for an air pistol club anywhere between Tidworth and Southampton

    Hi All,

    Job relocation is going to force a change of club at some point in the next 2-3 months, I have tried the NSRA club finder, and Google, but now looking to you good folks for recommendations

    I live in Southampton, job is moving to Bulford/Tidworth, and would like to find a club somewhere on route between the two with an active 10m pistol section - I am doing the commute by pushbike, so don't want to deviate too far from the 'as the crow flies' cycling route (Southampton/Chilworth/Romsey/Timsbury/Mottisfont/The Wallops/Cholderton/Tidworth)

    Any suggestions? I've ruled out Salisbury Rifle and Pistol Club @ Potterne just on distance, somewhere near Winchester would be ideal

    Thanks in advance

    Southampton Rifle Club/Highfield RPC have a 10m range in the Bunker on Bassett Green Road (in addition to their 20yd .22 range). Don't know what the rifle/pistol split is.

    I assume you've e-mailed the NSRA and asked them for a list of all the affiliated clubs that do AP in Hampshire/Wiltshire?

    Yep

    About 29 miles each way, did a recce of the route in blistering heat last Saturday carrying enough gear for a cheeky overnight camp in just over 2 hours, first time I've ridden bike for over 7 months, bike is still set up for off road touring - this weekends task is to change tyres/gearing/luggage and bars to suit road commuting, which should shave a chunk off that time (and still better than sitting in car/van for +/-1.25 hours to make the same journey)

    Thank you for this - have now found the Southampton RPC website and emailed them
