We are a friendly club situated on the field at the rear of THE DOG PUB on the A68 leaving Darlington, on the crossroads to the Heighington and Walworth turning.
Heighington, Darlington, County Durham DL2 2TX
The Dog Clay Target Shooting Club has been established for 28 years. We have annual checks by Durham Police to ensure that we meet all standards for safety and to allow us to encourage the novice shooter. All of our club officials are also safety officers and are registered with the CPSA
This ensures we are safe in our practices, have satisfactory members to provide training in the handling of shotgun and ammunition, and to ensure safe and courteous activities at all times.
These checks if satisfactory lead to the police to grant the club with a section 11 (6) (1968 Firearms Act) exemption certificate, which allows a person without holding a shot gun certificate to use a shotgun at a place approvedfor shooting by the Chief Officer of Police.
Therefore allowing persons of any age, gender or experience to come along and under the strict guidance of our members, shown and use a shotgun safely.
Black powder, side by side, over and under and semi automatics guns used and welcome.
We meet every OTHER Sunday throughout the year unless stated otherwise. Come rain or shine! Check out the dates and times section for more details.
