    You can look up clubs on the BASC website, or that of the CPSA - the Go Shooting section of BASC is excellent for resources like this. If you are planning to travel in your m/h with a shotgun it may be interesting for those of us who shoot clays to discuss securing methods which would keep the police relatively happy. Its one thing to travel to a competition for a day and keep your gun secured with you but if you combine that with a holiday in your motorhome it raises all sorts of security issues. I couldn't relax if I had my gun in the motorhome while I was out, and had to stress about it 24/7, hence don't get much clay shooting done when away in the van!! Some venues offer secure gunsafe facilities for competitions and if pre-arranged, which may solve the problem:RollEyes:

    You could also try some of the shooting magazines - lots of ads for grounds, holidays, coaching etc. My magazines are not to hand, or I'd look something up now. Sporting Gun, Clay Pigeon Monthly, BASC and CPSA s magazines and quite a few more.

    N Wales: Llandegla Shooting Ground, North Wales, or
    North Wales Shooting School, Sealand nr Chester.

    Penrith and District Gun Club, Cumbria

    Just to name a few.

    Hope you find something suitable.

    Laurie if you took 5% of your cooking equipment out of your rear garage, :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:you could bolt a single gun safe to the floor,it would then double up as secure storage when not shooting:thumb:
    I have considered doing something like that myself as being an amateur shootist would love to have my guns with me if there were the slightest chance of popping a few clays whilst away:thumb: I know a central CL with shooting facilities
    Do I feel a shooting meet coming on:Doh:

    Clay Shooting

    Wow, lots of like minded peeps :Smile:
    I have a safe bolted into one of the belly lockers but many schools will do storage if pre arranged.
    A "shoot meet" now there's an idea::bigsmile:

    This place holds a monthly shoot for experienced SGC holders, no need to book just turn up on the day. Although if we had a meet it may be advisable to call them.
    It's in a fantastic part of the world, just close to Abersoch on the Llyn penynsula in North Wales.
    And it has it's own camp site :Smile:

    Bob Valentine Shooting School

    Thanks for the replies, let me know (pm) if anyone wants to get together for a few clays.

    Caly Pigeon Meet

    Hi , just to follow up on this old post.
    Take a look at the link, we could have a Shoot Meet if you're all still interested:Smile:

    Let me know what dates you can all do, try and give me 2 dates from the "Events" dates on the site, hopefully we can get a date that suits the majority.
    I'll do the leg work from there::bigsmile:
