Default Getting into a new sport

As doctor nick would say... "Hello everybody"
Seriously though, hello. I'm sure I was a member a couple of years ago when I bought my S400 but a house move stopped the use for a while with all the diy etc but I'm back on it and enjoying getting down to the Derbyshire Air Rifle Club again and I am using the range over in Huthwait to get my eye in... Slowly!
I'm sure I'll be posting questions on questions but please bare with me


I'll start with one here. Can anyone recommend any other clubs around the Derby or Nottingham area? I'm mad and can't seem to get enough of it at the moment!

Welcome Duncan, you cant beat Woodend for setting up, I have just got back from there myself! As for other clubs to plink at, they are few and far between but there are plenty HFT events dotted around, have a look at the airgun club map here

and check the calendar for events coming up.
HFT, for people with only 2 buttucks!

Hi Duncan, welcome to the forum.

Anston might not be too far for you. They are a mix FT/HFT club. Mad as a box of frogs but sound as a pound.

Hi Duncan, unfortunately Anston is full with a waiting list.
You can always put your name down but don't hold your breath waiting to get in.
Other clubs within driving distance are Kingsley in Staffordshire & maybe Kibbworth in Leicestershire.
