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.
Update - 1st May 2022
Restrictions relative to COVID 19 continue to be eased and we increasingly return to pre-covid with regard to access to the club and the shooting facilities avialable. The wearing of a face mask is not a legal requirement but it is advisable "until, as suggested, Covid 19 infections within the wider public are significantly reduced". We would also request that members and visitors use hand sanitiser when at the club.
The booking system can used on-line or at the club itself when you arrive to book a slot on the range. When at the club more slots can be booked if available. This is the link to the booking portal: https://cvpc.ezfacility.com/
This does away with the range detail sheet that would normally have to be completed. We have set up a new touch screen computer at the club so you can also book yourself in upon arrival using your fob or by entering your name on the computer screen.
Club guns will also be available "but only" upon request.
The coffee / tea bar and refreshments are now available to purchase.
The winter league 2021/2022 is now over with competition results being collated. The Summer League 2022 entry forms will be available in due course.
We would encourage the members to attend the club and enjoy the facilities, social atmosphere and ultimately the chance to resume target shooting.
We now have access to the Dechmont Rifle Range. Please see the website news link for dates and times. Please note that when attending the Dechmont range you must bring with you your Shooter Certification Card
Unfortunately the Club cannot accept any new applications for membership until further notice.
The probationary course for new members whose application has been accepted is still on hold but hopefully not for much longer.
Shooting at the Blairadam range is also available. Go to the website News page to see the list of range days. Attendance to Blairadam can be booked by contacting Ewan Cockburn. His contact details can be found at the club. Members wishing to use club guns and associated ammunition at the Blairadam range must also do this in advance by contacting Ewan. Please note that ammunition must be purchased at the club in advance of the range day being attended.
Those members who have not completed the full bore probationary course may attend Blairadam but only by prior notice and arrangement
Finally, we are pleased that the club is gradually returning to normal and we would like to see the members return and enjoy target shooting.
Please remember to bring your fob so you access the club.
Please note that Police Scotland regulary review the clubs attendance records and firearms used by the members. If you fail to attend the club on a regular basis and use your registered firearms this may impact upon your good reason to hold a firearms certificate.
