Hemswell Shooting Club can offer new and probationary members advice, support and training to help get them started in the shooting sport. Once you are a probationary member you will be required to attend when a full member of the club is available to guide and instruct you and provide a firearm for you to use, you can start trying the different disciplines to decide which ones you are likely to participate in.
Hemswell Shooting Club can offer a club rifle for the Lightweight Sport Rifle discipline and the club has qualified coaches that can instruct you in this discipline using the club rifle to help you learn about the techniques and the safe and responsible use of a firearm. Hemswell Shooting Club unfortunately cannot offer a club firearm for all the disciplines however other members of the club are friendly and willing to allow you to have a shoot with their firearm so that you can experience what the discipline involves.
Talking with other members and the person who is instructing you as a probationer is a good way of learning techniques and what is involved in a discipline, and other members are willing to share their knowledge and help you to improve in your chosen disciplines. The person who is instructing you as a probationer is there to guide and advise you in the safe and responsible use of a firearm and how to conduct yourself on the range while shooting is commencing.
Once you are a full member you can attend the range like any other full member, two full members in attendance always before shooting can commence. Members that have been instructing you are not required anymore to attend the range with you. Other members are still there to offer advice, guidance, training and help with your application for a firearms certificate.
