Parkstone Gun Club has a very active “Air” section, shooting air guns of all types in all disciplines. Our members range from “plinkers” (people who are happy to shoot a tin can in their back garden) to accomplished national level sportsmen and women. The club is very welcoming to all skill levels.
There are a wide range of ages too; it is encouraging seeing so many young people taking up target sports. Young shooters are the future of our sport, but it can be a bit daunting when a youngster is seen to have the raw talent to beat some of the adults around them in competitions.
A visitor to PGC will see a variety of airguns, from the vintage and dated, to the cheap and cheerful to the absolute state of the art. Many are not aware that some air rifles come with a price tag of over £2,000 – and that’s before a telescopic sight is fitted
However, the skills required for safe and successful shooting do not come from the pistol or rifle – skills come from the person behind the trigger. That’s where the encouragement of our members and our club facilities come in.
The Club has a range of high quality air rifles which can be loaned to members or visitors. We have several rifles that can be used for competitive shooting, which means those who do not yet have their own guns can use our equipment. Club equipment is loaned at no cost to visitors and members as part of their range fees.
The club stock a range of pellets usually at prices lower than can be seen in the shops or on the web.
Please feel very welcome to drop in, have a coffee and a chat. Even on our busiest evenings the club airgunners will always find time for you.
