We as a club welcome applications from people who have a genuine interest in shooting.

A person who wishes to become a member of the club is either introduced by an existing member or by making an enquiry via the website.

In advance of visiting the club for the first time, the person’s details will be passed to the Membership Secretary who will formally invite the guest to attend.

On their first visit to our range, once the guest has received a full safety briefing by the Club Training Officer and RCO, they will be allowed under supervision to shoot one round at a time. If the guest does not have a shotgun certificate, they cannot shoot at our clay ground.

The person will be allowed three visits as a guest and then must submit a full application to join the club, if they wish to do so.

Once the guest has made it clear that they wish to become a member, the membership application form and declaration forms must be completed in full and returned with written and signed references from two separate referees, one of whom may be a club member. Two passport photos will also be required.

Any application for membership requires that the applicant’s details are passed to Police Scotland Firearms Licensing department who will conduct background checks and reference checks will be conducted.

Any membership application not completed in full along with the required fee and documents will be rejected and access to facilities will be withdrawn.

The applicant may be invited for an interview by the Committee and if all is in good order and if accepted as a probationary member, pay the full membership fee and joining fee.

The probationary period is 6 months minimum from the date of the meeting or being informed that they have been accepted as a probationary member. The probationary member will then be issued with a club ID card and a copy of the club rues. The probationary period may be extended by a further 3 months if the Committee requires.

During the probationary period the member will receive training on firearm and range safety. Full NRA probationary training will be given and documented.

Any membership application rejected under the first 3 months of the probationary period will attract a refund of 50% of the club fee paid minus the joining fee. After three months the fee is non-returnable.

After the probationary period, the application for membership will be reviewed by the Committee and full membership to the club will be awarded or rejected.

The Committee reserves the right to refuse membership without giving reasons.

Once the applicant is awarded with full membership will they be allowed to invite guests and apply for a firearms certificate (unless they have certificate from another club etc.).

The age limit for joining the club is 18 to 75. This to comply with insurance restrictions. Family membership will allow membership from the age of 14 but one or both parents must be full members. It is desirable that probationary and full members have their own insurance from the likes of BASC etc.

Persons under the age of 18 cannot attend MOD facilities.
