    Hi, I've just moved to Coalville in Leicestershire and I'm looking to get back into FT or HFT shooting (was a member at Lincoln HFT at Waddington about 15 years ago) so really just looking for recommendations for clubs in my area, preferably no more than a half hour drive away. I wouldn't be joining until next spring though as I need to save up for a new rifle :)

    Closest HFT club to you will be Loughborough I guess. With misfits and tall trees not being too much further.
    Check the maps that Mick linked to though.
    I only shoot HFT but you are welcome to come along to a shoot with me and borrow one of my rifles if you want. Can't promise the scope will be set up right for you etc but better than nothing!

    Hi take a look at Blackbrook Country Sports, near Lichfield. There are 3 full time FT/HFT courses to shoot 6 days a week and the most comprehensive covered and heated plinking range you will ever see. Let me know if you need any further info
