Attendance at my own Rivington club involves a 72 mile round trip for the indoor range and 86 for the outdoor at Turton. Well worth it though.

19 mile round trip for me and I am one of the closest members!

We have had people coming up from Swindon which is a 90 mile round trip!
  • Daystate MK4 (No electrocutions yet ) GC laminate stock w/ Leupold comp. 45
  • Daystate MK4 TH (Still no electrocutions ) w/Hawke Panorama 3-12 40
Slowly working my way through every conceivable way to miss tin chickens!
