    :confused: Does anyone know the details of any air rifle/pistol shooting clubs/ranges close to Leicester City?
    Web seraches give plain incompleted review pages but no details of location, facilities, opening times or fees.
    Anywhere within 15-20 miles of the City will be great.
    ;)

    The Greyhound in Bedworth, Missfits, there's a 10m & FT club in Groby. We're spoiled for choice.:)

    As Charlts says the midlands is well served, just a case of seeing which fits your requirements best. Here's some links...

    The Greyhound: Nice informal set up and you can "pay'n'play" so just turn up and shoot. Excellent plinking/zeroing range to 60 yards with covered firing point, HFT course and usefully close to eponymously named pub (50 yards :)) If you take a lady friend , or have a very delicate nature, the toilet facilities leave a bit to be desired, but that's just another reason to go to the pub.

    Leicester & District ~ Groby: Posh facilities etc see the link for more details. HTH

    They're very limited on opening times though aren't they?
    Correct me if I'm wrong.
