We get asked 2 questions quite often : Where are the local shooting clubs and how do i join...???
Well as i always say we are here to help and support YOU so this page is all about the answers to these very important questions... As you know we are based in Sheffield so the clubs listed below are located around or near us or clubs we associate with and recommend. Some clubs dont appear on the list as we DO NOT recommend them.
1st things 1st to own a firearm you need a license known as an FAC (firearms certificate) or SGC (shotgun certificate) to get this you must apply to your local police force firearms licensing dept.
Before you apply for one you must be a member of a shooting club, most clubs ask you to join as a probationer, you must make so many visits in a set time (depending on which club you join the rules are slightly different) once this time has passed and they are happy your safe and competent you will be made a full member at which time you can apply to the police for your own FAC or SGC.
Once granted this will allow you to purchase you own firearms or shotguns (you can store them at home you do not store them at the club) Which is why you need a gun safe. When you join a club they will give you guidance on how to operate and become proficient in shooting and safety and also help you apply for you FAC once your a full member.
So your 1st step is finding a local shooting club and going for a visit.. Below is a list of shooting clubs in and around the Sheffield area or clubs we have visited and highly recommend. Every club is different some shoot small bore .22 some shoot full bore .223 up to .50cal some shoot a mix of cals and disciplines (standing, sitting, bench rest, prone) so its a good idea to visit a few and find one that suits you and what you want to get out of your club: We hope this has helped.
