Hi All, it might seem like a silly question but I can't seem to find the answer on the website. What is the minimum age for membership/shooting? My five year old has been target shooting with BB guns for a while and has surprised me at how accurate he is with a cheap plastic gun. He really enjoys target shooting and I wanted to get him into doing it properly from a distance and with more variety. Any ideas, hints or tips would be gratefully received. Thanks in advance for your help :-) Regards, Shane.

Hi Shane,

Welcome to the club forum.

There is no minimum age. You would just need to be with him under close supervision to make sure that he able to understand the rules and shoot safely.

We have had people of a similar age before and most get on very well.

We have an Air Arms S200 as a club rifle that may be suitable for him to try shooting with. It depends on how it fits him, you may have to assist with loading etc.

Please feel free to come over and we will show you both round and you can see what is involved.

We have some platforms for smaller people so using the bench rest positions on the range should be no problem.
