Shooting insurance is compulsory to shoot, if you haven’t already got cover, we recommend the Country Cover Club see www.ccc3.co.uk and use code RIFLEMAN232 for a 10% discount – this cover is by far the most cost effective we can find. Alternatively, BASC, BDS or the NGO can offer similar cover but check their T&C’s.

We all must have either an NRA or Rifleman Firearms Safe Shooter Card (contact Ian at the range if you haven’t got one) AND complete the individual booking register form which MUST be submitted to Chris@riflemanfirearms.co.uk at least 72-hours before the shoot date – the registration form is attached to this page.
