Membership of the BCR&PA

Membership of the Association is open to all provided you satisfactorily complete a minimum of a 3-month probationary period, attend a suitable number of coaching sessions and pass the required police checks. (Membership of all "Gun Clubs" is subject to the Home Office Guidelines).

The full membership rate is around £200 per year!

A session shooting will cost you a range fee of £2 (50p for juniors) plus the cost of your ammunition (which can be purchased from the Association). Club guns (air pistols, rimfire or centre fire rifles) can be borrowed from the Association free of charge.

To find out more about membership simply visit the association and talk to the desk duty officer. 

Newcomers are invited to make their first visit on a Friday evening between 7.30 and 9.30pm.

Once you are a full member you will be able to apply for your own firearms certificate. This involves applying to your local Police force, and if the application is successful you will be able to own and store your own firearms. The Associations members will gladly help with your application.

If you just wish to shoot air pistols or air rifles you do not need a firearms certificate to own those guns.
