Thread: Range day on Notts Range

  1. #1

    Range day on Notts Range

    For the last few years, i have held a free range day for BASC members usually on a bank holiday. Not one person has ever turned up.
    Would anyone be interested if we did the same this year?

    The name of the range is Epperstone Range nr Lowdham.
    The range goes back to 500m, but i'm only planning to shoot at 100m for zeroing and perhaps run a small comp, prone at 100, kneeling at 75, and standing at 50.
    I was thinking of August bank holiday,
    but i will be on the range this saturday if that is too far in the future.

    The range is used by two clubs I think and the BDS for range days among others, however the Notts Police use it and I was told have spent a few quid on it updating the firing points, there is also an indoor pistol and small bore range.
    I haven't been in but have peered through the windows looks ok, it is a bit awkward to find if you don't know the area, google map Epperstone its just going out of the village on the left hand side if you are heading towards Newark.

    Stone's mate has just opened a brand new range up near Ashbourne that should be well worth a visit as you can book it by the hour Epperstone is a bit awkward to get on to, you need to call the owner and try to make a booking or go on a club or range day.

    Hi Splash,
    BDS did not lose the range, they simply stopped making any bookings.
