The Club provides a safe and attractive open air environment where both paper and metal silhouette targets can be shot. This can be made as simple or as demanding as required by the individual shooter so as to cater for the “plinking for pleasure” as well as the more competitive shooters in the Club. We have some club guns for visitors to use, so you do not need your own gun to come and have a look at what we do
Guest shooters are able to make the most of the range at their leisure during usual club opening hours. Included in the shooting rates at Dishforth is hire of eye protection and ear protection.
Challenge your friends and family in a shoot-off on our friendly plinking range. Grab a gun, some fun targets and a tub full of ammunition because our Air Range is here to be enjoyed.
