Hello again, all! It's been a while! Despite the best efforts of the man - the legend - that is dave_303, I've left Bristol. :run:
Work has taken me to Big Smoke (or rather - to a town just north of London), and I'm on the hunt for a new club!

Though I'd prefer somewhere that shoots calibres other than .22lr (even simply pistol calibre), I understand that most of the clubs in the area will be smallbore. That's fine! Bisley is very close, now, so I suppose I can slake my fullbore thirst there!

So - does anyone have any experience with clubs in (North) London, or South Herts (South of St Albans)? I've applied for a place at MRPC, but they're not considering anyone until early next year, apparently. In the meantime, then, I'm looking at other options! I'm in London quite a lot, during the week, so that's convenient.

Harrow (my local) has indoor .22lr and airgun ranges, and we shoot at Bisley every now and again. PM me if you'd like to pop down and have a look.

Cheshunt has a wider range of facilities, including pistol calibres and shotgun.

Watford and Ruislip both have clubs, but not sure if they're taking members at present.

Mrpc seem to have inner turmoil at the moment.
I've shot there over the years.
Few other clubs are booker on the booker airport near Wycombe and little chalfont near to amersham.
