    Hi All,

    I am just about to apply for my ticket but have a quick question.

    My club that I shoot at is smallbore 22LR only.

    I wanted to know if I would be able to add .308/7.62 to my application for ad-hoc shoots at a fullbore range on open days. Bisley etc?

    I would be a member of the full ore range club but want to attend open days.

    Would this be reason to have a slot for the .308?

    Thanks in advanced.

    Yes, this is what happens in most clubs, our range is limited to downloads on rifle rounds but we have range days three/four days a month

    How does this work? My club does most disciplines so it's not something I have to worry about, But..... Who would you be insured by & who signs your safe shooting card? I know if you're an NRA member you can just book a lane at Bisley but you'd be insured through them anyway!

    I will have to ask some of the guys at the club on Sunday.
    Got about 2 months before I get my ticket.

    Many small bore clubs have a full bore section with a separate person running it. Often only half a dozen shooters.
    You just join the section and pay a small sub. Then normally pay a fee for a target and marker when attending full bore ranges fortnightly or once a month, whatever they do.
    A very good way too save fuel too!!

    First off if you want full bore there’s only two ways with clubs

    First is your club NRA affiliated if so state that most HO clubs are. get the affiliation number and put this on your application

    Or join the NRA anyway.

    If you don’t do one of those two most FEOs will now say no to fb until you qualify one of those two criteria.

    Get a letter from the club secretary stating they are affiliated to the NRA that’s what I did and then no problem.
