    Gardeners Gun Longtown New Range

    New Range near Carlisle.



    Gardeners Guns Ltd Purdoms Crook, Sandy Sike, Longtown CA6 5ST have opened a new centre fire range which they have made available to the public. It is situated a couple of miles from J44/M6. The maximum range at present is 150yards but plans are unway to include a 100yards zero range and 50 yard rimfire. All will have three covered firing points. There is also a modern caravan with tea and coffee making facilities. Bench rest style firing points are being fitted. It is ideal for load development or zeroing. The cost for a full days shooting is 20 with annual membership 30. To book call Mark or Caroline Gardener and they will send an application form. Tele: 01228 792535. The range is approximately mile from the shop. Parking is available next to the firing points.

    Edgar Brothers will be hosting a two day event at the range on the 16th and 17th February when you will be able to try various rifles imported by Edgar Brothers. Ammunition will be free on the day. A second weekend is planned for summer when GMK importers of Tikka and Sako rifles will host a similar event. Contact the shop to book a place.


    Merry Christmas to you all.

    I am a member of the range there are 2ranges 1 with covered firing points at 100 & 150 m & the other is a 50m range.
    You do have to become a member to shoot there and have do the safety awareness course /probation as with other clubs.
    Joining fee is 40 per year and 20 a day to use both ranges.
    The range is a work in progress at the moment when it comes to car parking and the like but the range is passed and open to members. Mark has the plans drawn up for whole new covered range and shop which look great if they come to fruition.
    Fair play to mark as he has,put his own money in to getting the range going .
