Welcome to Clyde Valley Pistol Club
Clyde Valley Pistol Club is a private members club. It was formed at Campbell Street, Hamilton in 1963 and we have been at our current location since 1980. Located only 30 minutes South East of Glasgow, we enjoy a healthy roster of members from all over Lanarkshire and beyond .
At the heart of the club we have have the best indoor range facility in West Central Scotland, with 6 firing points within a fully ventilated 25 metre range. All 6 lanes are equipped with automatic pneumatic turning targets, allowing rifle versions of the classic pistol competitions to be shot.
The Club has Home Office approval for small-bore rifle, centre fire gallery rifle and muzzle loading pistol target shooting in the indoor range. Members can also use air rifles, air pistols, and CO2 pistols. We regularly shoot full-bore rifle at 100-500 yards on an outdoor range in Scotland.
A full safety briefing must be completed before joining (by Appointment Only Click Here) and friendly tuition and advice is always available thereafter.
Members can take a break from shooting in our heated club room with tuck shop, kitchen and toilet facilities.
COVID 19 - Coronavirus Update 3rd June 2020
The Committee and I sincerely hope that you and your family are all safe and well in the midst of these trying times.
I would like to take this opportunity to let you know that the Committee is still working on your behalf, keeping Clyde Valley Pistol Club running.
You may be aware that the Government has started a phased relaxation of restrictions, and it was with this in mind that we held a meeting on the 25th May via Skype to not only discuss the day to day running of the club, but to also discuss at what stage it would be regarded as being safe to reopen the club on a restricted basis. The Government has set out 4 phases and it was agreed by the Committee that phase 3 would be the earliest the club should think about reopening.
I understand that some of you may have a different opinion as to when the club should reopen but the Committee agreed that 3 key principles must be satisfied before we would be willing to consider reopening:
- Commitment to the safety of the Committee members, so they may carry out their duties without risk to themselves or their families.
- Commitment to the safety of the club’s members, so that they can attend the club without risk to themselves or their families.
- Protection of the club’s reputation, we must be in a position to follow government guidelines and not be putting the wider community at risk for what is essentially a hobby.
The Committee also discussed that no AGM will be arranged until such times as it is prudent to do so. We will continue to monitor the situation and advise as soon as we can. In the meantime the current Committee members will continue in their position.
The Committee would like to thank the members for the support they have shown for the club and Committee in these difficult times and that it is appreciated. For those that have continued to pay their fees, or a nominal amount we extend out thanks, but also remind you that you are also at liberty to take a payment holiday without prejudice until the club reopens.
