at my TA center there is a 25 meter indoor range certified for .22LR , most TACs (Territorial Army Centers) and Army camps have these indoor ranges. since the SA80 upgrade the sub-cal devices ( .22LR ) are no longer usable in the A2, and many of the indoor ranges are now used for storage or as lessons rooms. I have been floating the idea of forming a "Servicemans Small Bore Rifle Club" with some of my fellow stabs, a club were we could use our own .22LR rifles on our TAC range. This would be a civvy club for serving and ex (TA and reg) army sportsmen using the Mod indoor range (not exclusively, like minded civvy folk welcome as well) The general idea is forming a club in which eventually new members could use to get themselves an FAC and join in the wonderful world of shooting sports. further down the line (dream stages now) if these clubs could be formed in other TAC centers or camps, some type of inter unit or area/national small-bore competitions could be held. A few questions I have that some posters on ARRSE may help me on getting a club started and formed in the UK - who do i contact in the MOD for info and guidance on a club using MOD property? is the NSBRA (National Small-Bore Rifle Assn) the governing body for small bore shooting clubs? who do i contact for getting HO (Home Office) approval on starting a club? any thoughts, general ideas or ploblems you may know about that i should be aware of? cheers, stealth BTW - a small-bore club is the second idea i have for the unused range, I firstly wanted a 'corporals club kareoke topless disco'. but the boss said no.
