The session start time allows for 30 minutes sign-on prior to the range opening for shooting. This allows 1 hour 45 minutes shooting time with one ceasefire.
The range is operating differently to pre-COVID-19, however, it is necessary for us to comply with Government guidelines and we thank you for your understanding, patience, and co-operation. We look forward to seeing our members at the range.
