Hi All!


I'm looking at starting clay pigeon shooting, tried it a few years ( 5/ 6 ish) ago and really enjoyed it but wasnt in the situation to take it anyfurther, i'm looking for any recommendations of friendly clubs / grounds in the nottingham/derby area ( i live pretty much on the border between the two) where i can have lessons - I have already been in touch with one club who shoot twice a month and am looking forward to going along to thier next shoot, but was wondering where else is good if i get the bug to want to do it more often than the club shooting days! or if i feel the need for some more structured lessons.


I have not yet applied for my SGC but will be doing so as soon as i can find somewhere to store/house any shotgun i buy, sadly i cannot have a gunsafe where i am currently living- so i was wondering if anyone knows of somewhere in my area that offers a gun storage service? I was initally intending on learning to shoot at orston where i had my first experiance shooting as i know they do advertise this service but i've heard that orston is not as nice a place as it once was as well as no longer lets you acomopany unlicenced shooter e.c.t.


Thanks in advance
