Introduction to the Basingstoke Air Rifle and Pistol Club

Welcome to the BARPC website which we hope will be of interest to both new visitors and existing members.

 

Last updated Nov 16

 

You will find us a very welcoming club, with our members partaking of Field Target, Hunter Style shoots, CO2 pistols, or just plain plinking at the outdoor range and, during the winter months, inside at our venue for 10m pistol & rifle or our new 60 yard general indoor range. In addition to these ranges, we now have access to Popham Woods once a month for a Sunday morning informal comp or practice.

Prospective new members are welcome to come along to our usual meetings (see below for days and times) once a welcome and range induction course has been undertaken. If you want to learn more about our club, please feel free to take a look at the articles written by our members in the news section and the other various sections of interest.

If you decide to come along please note that any legal limit, (not firearms certificate - FAC) airgun is acceptable for use, but we do not allow steel or copper BB shot, darts, Prometheus type pellets, or other ammunition which can rebound. In practice, this means lead only.

Club Competitions
Most of the competitions we stage at the grounds are very informal club events, but we occasionally invite guests from other clubs, and once or twice a year we put on a major competition on hired or loaned ground out in the country for a really authentic shoot. These events draw shooters from all over the South, from near complete novices to some of the country's best shots. Other clubs reciprocate by having open days and you'll find a hard core of members attending these events throughout the Summer months.

Meeting Times
We meet throughout the year on Sunday mornings from around 09.00 to 12.00, and during June, July, and August on Tuesday evenings from 19.00 to 21.00, at our main range, The Walled Garden, Down Grange recreation grounds / sports fields, off Pack Lane, Kempshott, Basingstoke

You are welcome to come on any of the range days for an initial viewing and a chat and to book a place on one of our new welcome and induction courses. Once the induction has been completed, you can then come along for a free “taster” session and try a shoot at any of the 3 main venues, after this you must join the club if you wish to attend further. Membership is currently £60.00 per year for an adult member with other rates for juniors and family members. There are no range fees at the walled garden however there is a small charge at “The Rat House” to cover electric and tea and coffee and a charge for those using the 10M indoor range and at Popham Woods for the monthly practice/club league morning sessions.

( Please note, entry cannot be gained by the Toby/Downgrange Health Club entrance on the Winchester road).. fees
