Thread: New range to open near ipswich?

  1. #1

    New range to open near ipswich?

    On another thread someone (Eric the red iirc) mentioned that there were plans to open a new range near Ipswich this year.
    it was mentioned that it would be near the toys r us roundabout.

    anyone got any info about this (or know where I might get some?)

    all the best,
    ​mike

    Im moving up in the summer, so I'd be close enough for this to be of great interest to me as well!

    Mike,

    This was idle gossip that I overheard that I was looking to get some confirmation of. Clearly not right - someone's wish/dream or future plan perhaps - or surely someone would know about it - and there'd be trumpeting to drum up business. We hear many stories of just how hard this is to do with all the rules and regs (rightly) surrounding such a facility.
    Sadly the East remains in dire need of a good range.

    I can't see it, is there really enough demand for one?

    Would be good if there is though because we go past toys r us four times a day on the school run when im not working

    The only new range I know of is Felixstowe rifle clubs new facilities when they get started

    Does the felixstowe range allow full bore rifles or is it small bore only?

    I've been told that the Felixstowe club are moving to a new location near or on the dock site,at the moment they do use fullbore but not at 100 mtr only 22lr at that range bazil
