    I am surprised they have put this on the website:-

    "Membership will be strictly controlled to prevent the wrong sort of people joining. This is especially important due to the area the club is situated in. The inner city area of Birmingham has a history of gun crime and gang shootings"

    Possibly the worst marketing I have seen when promoting itself.

    As you say the website is stil under design but it says the range is 45ft . I look forward to hearing more about this so thanks.

    Cool. Is it open yet?
    I'm working in Aston and Hansworth for the next month!

    Amazed there is a demand for an indoor range in Aston. The locals usually just use the streets!

    Hi yes agree its a tad bit off putting! I think its just to warn off any potential trouble makers and gangsters.

    Hi Aston Arena will be having an open day Sunday 13th May 2012 this will be official launch of the club. Please don't expect a super duper state if the art club it's just starting out. Has great potential to be the best indoor club in UK I don't think anywhere can touch the size it's massive! Possible to do indoor FT and HFT course.

    Will post more details Solware will be there and some manufacturers inc Brocock and Deben. Just initial launch of club and Brocock will be unveiling the new Specialist Airgun.

    Ok chaps quick message we are not sure what's going on with the Aston Arena open day launch. We know as much as you guys we think that there's not enough of a commitment from the owners. We don't want to let people down so would suggest anyone interested in attending contact Aston Arena. We are not sure what's going on?

    Yes not sure well thus is an official comment from Solware

    We are not attending Aston Arena nor Brocock not Hawke. We have received no communication to phone calls or emails. Just seems not to be full commitment from owners of Aston Arena and just one chap called Alex. We are very disappointed as this had great potential to be the biggest and best in UK. We wish Aston Arena every success and if more commitment is shown then Solware will offer full support.
