Air Rifle


At Skill at Arms we are constantly looking at way to improve our facilities and find more ways to get people shooting.


We are delighted to announce the opening of our 10m indoor air-rifle range.  The air-rifle range can accommodate up to 5 shooters at any time.  Fully insulated, wheelchair friendly, with heating and well lit, it’s a perfect way for you to plink away and hone your shooting skills. We have a variety of targets available but feel free to bring your own.




On selected dates throughout the year we open up the outdoor range to air gun shooting. At the range we set up shooting positions and targets. The firing points are covered to help keep you cool or dry depending upon the weather and there are tables with rests and chairs to shoot from, although you can shoot prone or positional as you wish.


We provide a variety of knock-down and reactive targets from 10yds to 30yds, and there are target stands for paper targets should you prefer. Eventually when the weather allows we will get our dedicated air gun range up and running and hopefully out to about 50m.


Everything is provided except your rifle and pellets. Check the dates on our Facebook group here -

What are the costs?


The Air Rifle Pay-and-Play will cost from £10pp (£20pp outdoors).
*We accept both cash and card on site.
On-site Parking is free, and is close to the ranges.
Please remember that you must bring your own air rifle, pellets & eye protection.


Please note


We have a few air rifles and pellets to lend out for a small fee - you are welcome to shoot your own rifles with your own pellets but they must conform to the range limits on MV/ME. Be prepared to offer for testing if asked.


We do not have air rifles to lend out - you are shooting your own rifles with your own pellets. The non-shooting facilities are sparce. The open water swimming lake often has a burger van when they are open, but their times don't always follow ours.


There is no need to make bookings in advance. However there may be a short wait if we are exceptionally busy. At busy times we will run the firing point on a squadded basis, each squad will shoot for a period and take it in turns. This way everyone gets to shoot plenty of times and no one is waiting around for too long.
