How to become a Member

Tuition & Safety

We welcome applications from applicants of all levels, from novice to expert.

We currently have a waiting list for new membership of the Gallery section of the Club, however we may be able to make exceptions for experienced Gallery shooters that don't require full induction. If you are interested in joining, or would like to find out more about our Club, then please Contact Us.

We will let you know when places become available for an induction session. During your induction session, you will be trained in the range safety procedures by an experienced and qualified member.

We have three types of membership:

  • SENIOR: Any individual not qualifying for Junior membership
  • JUNIOR: Any individual under 18 or 21 if in full-time education
  • FAMILY: Up to four members of one family who are individually accepted for membership

A Gallery Rifle Session

As part of your application, we will require you to provide:

  • references from people, who are not related to you, confirming that you are who you claim to be and that you are of good character. The referees must have known you personally for two years. Please provide full contact details including an email address for your referee so that we can contact them
  • a copy of a current utility bill or other recent ’official’ letter addressed to your home address
  • a copy of your passport or photocard Driving Licence
  • a digital passport style photograph, in JPEG or PNG format

You will also be required to sign a declaration stating that you are not prohibited from being in possession of firearms or ammunition. This may apply to you if you have served a term of imprisonment. We are unable to accept you as a member if you are prohibited from handing firearms as this is a legal requirement.

You will normally be a probationary member for at least 6 months. During this time, we will make an assessment of your level of commitment and general character during this period. After 6 months you may ask the committee to consider you for full membership.
