MEMBERSHIP FEES for 2023
Our membership fees for 2023 have been held to our 2022 price. For full details please see our fees page.
We are now able to offer Saturday club inductions on a semi- regular basis. If after seeing what we have to offer, you are interested in joining our club, then please send a message via the contact page. We will contact you to invite you to attend an induction with our induction officers, where we informally go through what we have to offer in a little more detail; show you the club facilities and equipment; have a safety talk; give information on membership procedure and costs and also give you the opportunity to ask any questions. Then if you are still interested in proceeding (and we hope you are) you can take away an application form to start the ball rolling.
Our shop page has various items available and all displaying the club logo. Some can be personalised with your first name. More options may be added in the future, depending on the demand. Just click the shop page in the menu for more details and the link. The club earns a small commission on every purchase, so please support us if you can.
MUZZLE LOADING PISTOL
All members are reminded that in order to use CRC club provided black powder or propellent you must now be in possession of a VALID explosive licence. Scroll further down for full details.
Please Note – Only experienced shooters can attend Bisley ML shoots.
CRC Home Range ML shoots are able to offer full training as necessary.
IMPORTANT- CHANGES TO EXPLOSIVE CERTIFICATE REQUIREMENTS
IMPLICATIONS AND ACTION FOR CRC MUZZLE LOADER’S
Following the recent and poorly publicised extension of UK Explosives Regulations to include black powder substitutes (e.g. Hodgdons Triple Seven) the Metropolitan Police MO19 Specialist Firearms Command has instructed the club that ALL shooters participating in ML pistol events and using club provided black powder or propellants must be in possession of a valid Acquire and Keep (AK), or Acquire Only(AO), Explosives Certificate.
MO19 have, however, agreed that potential new ML shooters without a certificate, may initially experience ML shooting under the constant supervision of an experienced certificate holder, but not load or handle powder/propellants.
ACTION: All members wishing to participate in CRC hosted ML pistol shoots and use club provided powder/propellant must therefore:
a) be able to produce a valid Acquire and Keep OR an Acquire Only Explosives Certificate specifying UN explosive numbers UN0027 (black powder granular or meal), UN0028 (black powder compressed or pellets) and UN0499 (propellant).
b) apply for an A&K or AO Explosives Certificate using form ER 4A
Certificates are free and are valid for five years. The Acquire Only application process is a straightforward formality. The Acquire and Keep application process will require a home visit assessment and possession of compliant storage container.
See met.police.UK/AR/applyregister or speak with CRC ML Pistol Captain Chris Stone or Club Secretary Barry Compton.
