Awsome range with very knowledgeable and helpful staff. I was impresses with the setup, the mill that it is situated in is impressive in itself! I have been to a few of their competitions and found them great fun catering for all skill levels from novices to those quite experienced. They were friendly and welcoming to all and extremely helpful to those who hadn't competed before making the various disciplines accessible to all. Excellent range.

What can I say !!! This place is perfect and in the northwest too. I’ve been waiting for years for this place to be built from hearing the rumours to becoming a full member and shooting it regularly on members nights twice weekly. (And doing rubbish on leader board might I add). A credit to Charlie and Wayne who have worked their butts off to get it to where it is! It has 2 x 50 metre firing points, 1 seated and 1 standing both with worktop. The seating area were you can get a hot drink or a bar of chocolate and soak up the wealth of knowledge from these 2 passionate shooters. An in house AR shop #northwestcustomparts to get all your bits including Ammo. Which in my case has doubled since shooting here but with every bang there’s a smile so we’ll worth it 😃. If you’ve never shot before and want to try send them a message and take it from there. Fun friendly atmosphere 10/10

Fantastic Range, great staff with a wealth of knowledge. The on site shop is like a Mecca for the AR-15 shooter. Never seen so many parts and full set ups I would love to have. To add a cherry on the cake the coffee is pretty good too 👍🏼 Wish I could spend so much more time here. Look forward to many more shoots. Lots of competitions and an active club to boot. Get down and see for yourself. Highly recommended. Five stars ⭐️

Fantastic facility ran by knowledgeable and friendly individuals. I used it to check zero on some full bore rifles in luxury compared to laying in a puddle on an outdoor range! Highly recommended!
