Hello everyone, I'm based in Liverpool and I have a SGC as I enjoy clay pigeon shooting.

I now want to start full bore target shooting and, well maybe I'm doing it wrong but finding a range that is in the North West, shoots 5.56 or .308, and is accepting memberships seems quite difficult.

I've visited Phoenix Range in Barnsley and I really enjoyed it, the club seems ideal except for its 1h30 away in each direction. Is it normal to travel so far or do I need to be more thorough in my search for a closer club?
