Novice Members

On joining the club, those new to the sport will undergo a four-week induction. This course introduces safe firearms handling; the principles of marksmanship and all the disciplines the club offers.

The course fee covers pellets, ammunition, insurance and use of club equipment. Rimfire ammunition is charged additionally (~£4 per box of 50).

Following the initial course, participants are invited to sign up to another 10 weeks of instruction in their preferred disciplines.

Under the terms of our Home Office Approval, new members serve 6 months as Probationary Members, after which their application will be reviewed by the Committee for approval as Full Members. Applications are also submitted to Staffordshire Police Firearms Licensing for approval.

Contact Us today to arrange your first visit! Please note you will not shoot on your first visit.

Moving to Rugeley from another club is straightforward, please contact us to arrange your first visit and have a look around. We will require a reference from the Secretary of your current club. There is no Joining Fee, Membership will be charged pro-rata for the remainder of the year (Year End 31st August).

FAQs

Shooting is a sport for all with shooters of all ages and genders competing on equal footing. Whilst there are age restrictions on the ownership of firearms we have no firm age restrictions on membership of the club or shooting with club firearms under supervision. Suitability comes down to emotional maturity and the physical ability to safely handle the firearms in question. We find that around 9 is the earliest age juniors can safely shoot. There is no upper age limit, though many older shooters migrate towards supported disciplines such as Benchrest later in their careers as physical demands dictate.

No. Although it’s always nice to have your own kit, RRC has club guns available for the use of all members whilst at the club. You can also store your ammunition at the club until your next visit.

We have a range of rimfire ammunition available for sale as well as air pellets. If you do not have a Firearm Certificate you can also store your ammunition at the club.

Rugeley does not charge range fees on a per-visit basis so once you’re paid up, that’s it! Club firearms are free for members to use – just add targets and ammo! Ammunition costs will vary depending on the grade you wish to buy and how much you shoot. Prices are subject to change but as a guide, a box of 50 .22lr rounds ranges from £4-8. Tins of 500 air pellets are ~£6 each.

If you wish to enter competitions there will be a fee to cover entries, which normally range from £5-12 per competition per season.
