LONG RANGE CAPT

Update on New Mile Long Range

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to give an up date to my previous post:-

 

http://ukvarminting.com/forums/topic/37240-new-mile-long-shooting-range-in-the-uk/?hl=mile

 

Having visited today to see the progress the new range I thought I would share with everyone a bit more info and pics.

 

1. The scale and the beauty of this place really has to be seen to be believed and the pics and video don't quiet do it the justice that it deserves by seeing it for real but hopefully it gives you an idea of the place.

 

Looking down the range from the Firing Point:-

From the final target area looking back to the Firing Point:-

Targets / Gongs will be place every 100m out to a mile.

 

All set to open July 2017

Wonder if it will be brought into the F Class league as a possible venue?

 

From speaking with Marc Gardner - there will be provision for F Class shooter.

Ah.

Passed his other premises earlier this year.

 

He's got a very new gallery type range & gunshop just outside Longtown (on the main road, between the town & the motorway junction)

 

Will pass news of this to a few locals

15 or so miles from Lockerbie judging by the OS map on the other thread - Holm & Clerkhill

Don't think it's Clerkhill. I live and work fairly local and I'd say the accommodation is about 7 miles from Eskdalemuir...... but I could be proved incorrect, and as Marc (as far as I know) hasn't released the location I'm not going to say where it is exactly.

I heard that it's going to be members only, is this the case?

Are the sheep in the first photo classed as moving targets?

Has it been passed by the Scottish police as I've not heard anything.

Is it an open ticket venue or can anyone with a target condition on their fac use it.

 

With the right to roam are there going to be red flags everywhere.

From the conversation I had yesterday it's members only (membership being £100 per year) then a small range fee each time you shoot.

 

There will as I understand it be guest membership.

 

Kind regards

That was interesting. Nice rifles.

Anybody know far that target was at the cut bank? And the size of the target? It's hard to tell from the vid.~Andrew
