    Parkstone indoor Phil. It's on the club map.

    25yds. Warm(ish) when the heaters are on.

    7:30 to 10pm Monday is general airgun practice. Friday is general practice same times... but you may get some loud bangy stuff as well in there on Friday.

    Can be a little busy early on, but i normally get a lane to myself for most of the session. There's 6.

    Paper target on electrics which can be set at 10m, 20m and 25yds. There's a few knockdowns as well.

    I do my windage in there and 10m. But there's benchrest or whatever, it's a pretty flexible place. Just wish it was longer.

    Think it's £3.50 for guests, £2.50 for members, £50 a year.
