All the info you need on your local shooting club

Rifle, shotgun or air rifle, if you are looking for a local club or shooting ground you can find them here.

North Cotes Butts

One of the biggest (and friendliest) clubs in the country, North Cotes caters for pretty much all shooting disciplines.

 

Over the years the site has gone from strength to strength. They currently have a 25 metre range, 40 metre range and 100 metre tube range (The Tunnel). They are also in the process of building a western range with many more plans in the pipeline.

 

In addition to this, clay pigeon shooting is also on offer (mainly sporting, but skeet is also available) on a daily basis from 10am until 4pm. To shoot clays outside of these times please ring on 01472 388984.

 

There are club practical shotgun competitions nearly every month (UKPSA rules apply).

 

For anyone interested in something a little different, steel plate shoots are run by a group of members, The NC Bushwackers.

Yeehaa! The British Western Shooting Society (BWSS) runs a competition at the club most months. You don’t have to be a member to come and have a look if you’re feeling a little wild.

 

If you want target shooting, they have many members who enjoy various disciplines of this, from air rifle and air pistol, rim-fire rifle and pistol, full-bore rifle, black powder muzzle loading rifles and pistols (all still legal) to target shotgun with the NTSA (National Target Shotgun Association).

 

We thoroughly recommend North Cotes here at First Lodge Guns. They are, without a doubt, the friendliest and most welcoming club anywhere.

 

So if any of these activities or events take your fancy, go and see them - and while you’re there try their ‘famous’ NCB Bacon Butties, have a cuppa, and a look at all they have to offer!
