New Forms Required

The new form is NOT optional, it must be filled out each and every time you visit the range. If you do not fill out correctly you will have to go home. The form is now a requirement of club membership.

Barton Road Targets

The range wardens at Barton Road have made new frames for us. We have exclusive use of our targets; Vintage Arms and Grove will use their own. Please ensure the following once you are finished:

  • Frames are to be put away with nothing left on them
  • If you want to use Shoot'n'See or other adhesive targets then please put these onto a removable paper sheet first
  • Please DO NOT use anything other than the correct holder for spotting disks when on butts detail


The club shoots regularly at Barton road range, up to 1200 yards and various miltary ranges around Thetford, plus a private range catering for a variety of firearms. Please check the other sections for range details. We are a diverse set of shooters from 'Bisley paper punchers' to stalkers and vermin shooters, all of whom share the opportunity to zero their rifles and test loads and drops. As such we cater for all tastes and range distances. All involved take turns to shoot and mark; as a club we cannot run without this so please don't expect to shoot 100% of the time. It is very likely that you will spend time assisting other shooters with marking or carrying out sentry duties (at Barton Road). However, there is plenty of time in during a well organised meeting to get plenty of shooting done. If you are going to be leaving a shoot meeting early please let the RCO know during the range briefing so they can arrange the shooting parties and marking duties accordingly. Please do not just leave. Home Office Approval Number 08/1/7/4/1/2/1/2/3/05
