All new members must serve a probationary period of three months and attend the club a minimum of 14 visits. All prospective members will be checked by the GMP Firearms Unit as to their suitability to attend the club.
To become a Member of a small-bore or full bore target shooting club is straight forward, though Legislation is very strict.
A-u-L range is open four evenings per week: - Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 5pm until 8.30pm and Saturday from 8am until midday in the basement of Guide Bridge Mill, South Street, Ashton-Under-Lyne, OL7 0HU.
All prospective Probationary Members must provide photo ID (i.e. Passport, Driving Licence etc.) at their first visit.
Probationary Members are legally required to complete at least a three month probationary period and accumulate a minimum of 14 visits before being offered Full Membership. For a FAC holder the probationary period is one month and 5 visits.
Legislation states that a non FAC holder cannot shoot live firing weapons on your first visit. This evening is solely used as an introduction to range safety, what is required under legislation, your questions answered and a look on the range. Most members are passionate about their sport. They will talk to you about shooting.
A two-part Probationary Membership form must be completed. Part 1 is required to be sent to Greater Manchester Police for vetting purposes. The second part is a register of your visits. Once the all clear is received from Greater Manchester Police, you will be allowed (Under the watchful eye of a qualified Club Instructor) to commence shooting.
Once offered Full Membership you are then eligible to apply for a Firearms Licence if you so wish.
All juniors (under 18) must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times whilst attending the range.
