Longtown Range has also reopened, new hours are Monday-Saturday, 9am till 5pm, split into 2 separate details, AM session from 9am till 1pm, and PM from 1pm to 5pm, this is to allow social distancing at the firing point leaving only 5 benches available.

Members must also provide their own targets and bring their own fixing system (staple gun or similar) and there is a no-non-shooting guests policy in place at the moment. We are still unable to provide training sessions for Probationary members so Full Members only at this time.
