We are the Isle of Wight's premier target shooting club. It was formed in 1944 from the local Home Guard Company and still thrives today, 70 years on. Our present membership is over 70 strong with male and female members aged from 11 to over 70 years. (Children under 18 years must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times).We shoot a variety of disciplines from .22 rim fire through full-bore centre fire to black powder and shotgun. There is an array of silver and other trophies to be won every year. But if you're not the competitive type, you can just shoot for fun.
New members have to be of good character and serve a 3 month probationary period during which time they can use the Club's firearms to practice and compete. As a full member an application can be made to the Police for a firearms certificate so you can purchase and use your own firearms.
