Joining a shooting club is subject to some safeguards by law.
We also need to comply with the firearms act of 1968 and all applications will undergo police vetting.
Once the vetting is complete, we will send you a probationary membership invitation and information on training, range safety and competency assessments courses. 

ALL new members join on a three month probationary membership, with full membership being confirmed by the Committee. The Committee reserve the right to extend or refuse probation.
As part of the application process you will be requested to provide a face photo for your ID card, proof of identity (passport/driving licence/FAC/SGC) and recent proof of address (utility bill/bank statement etc). These can be securely emailed to the Membership Secretary, once requested and your membership card photo can be a simple photo taken from your phone. If you are not comfortable with this you may request a video call with our Membership Secretary to verify your identity.
