First Aid Training
In November 2018 a number of Penrhiwpal club members received Defibrillator, CPR and Recovery Position Training from a St Johns Ambulance First Aid Trainer, especially as we now have a new defibrillator unit fitted in the club house. All those who attended successfully passed their training.
The club has built an overflow car park to the left of the 100 yard range area. When the main car park is full please use the overflow park. All spaces in the main park are designated as "disabled priority". Please give disabled persons priority use of car parking spaces in the main car park.
The club uses the area of land behind the 100 yard stop butts for various practical style events, including Iron Plate Action Shooting using CO2 powered pistols and practical shotgun sessions.
The club runs clay pigeon sessions for members and probationers on various Saturdays throughout the year. See the notice board in the clubroom for dates and other details, or speak with Bill.
We can only entertain guests and visitors on the designated open days and the last Sunday of each month is designated an open day and the local Police have been informed. This is part of the Home Office regulations that govern all H.O. approved firearms clubs. These same regulations require us to ensure police checks are completed before newcomers attend again after the first visit. We will always try to minimise disruption to members shooting when prospective new members are being shown around but we ask members to please remember their first times and be patient.
To help improve safety on the ranges, all newcomers are required to successfully complete a four session safety coaching course covering airguns and .22rf rifles before becoming members. The purpose is to ensure that people are safe to shoot and until successfully completing the course new shooters will be subject to one-to-one supervision.
100 Yard Range
Shooters without a current NRA competency certificate must be assessed by a qualified RO or coach before shooting on the Quarry Range. Shooters on all ranges are required to sign a declaration that their ammunition does not exceed the range limits before shooting and a further declaration if they are using reloaded ammunition that it has been reloaded according to the NSRA "Code of Practice". The club reserves the right to test random samples of ammunition over the chronograph to confirm it is within the range certification.
