Hi Uli,
Mike from UKCAF.
So what are you doing down in my neck of the woods?

There's not that many clubs down this way I'm afraid, I shoot at Meon Valley Airgun Club ( and we are not to far from Winchester. We have a club house that is open on Wednesday and have a 33y indoor range, now with the lighter evening's we also set up a HFT course in the wood next to the club. On Sundays we have the use of another wood that we use all year round. Check out the Web site for contact info and directions. And if you like I can introduce you as a guest.
If you want to do FT the the place for that is Southampton Buccaneer's ( they shoot near Romsey & on Sundays only.
You also have Bisley Air Rifle Club at the National shooting grounds
There are a couple of small bore rifle clubs as well & a 10 meter indoor club in Wickham.
hope this help's, but we are sadly lacking in having just a open range where you can just turn up, pay and shoot

Always welcome at the Buccaneers, our new grounds are on the outskirts of Romsey but we're limited to Sunday mornings. Basingstoke is close to Winchester so worth having a look at them, I think they can shoot on weekdays and have a 60yrd+ indoor range.

There is a club in Winchester, it's indoors in a tunnel but I understand there's a waiting list for membership that's quite long and I'm not sure about guests as I've not been there. A couple of the guys at the club shoot there, I think it's just 10m with a maximum of 20 yards but not 100% sure.
