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 20th May 2021
Further to our update on the 30th October 2020 the Clyde Valley Pistol Club Committee are pleased to announce the club will be partially re-opening for FAC holders only. To facilitate this reopening and to comply with the social distancing measures required there will still be some changes to how we used to operate. There will of course be new rules in place limiting the number of individuals in the clubhouse at any point, a new one-way system and introducing the requirement for PPE to be worn at all times.
Please note that any member living in a Level 3 tier will be unable to attend until such times as their area is moved to a Level 2. Similarly, should South Lanarkshire move to Level 3 the clubhouse will be closed until Level 2 status is resumed.
Who can shoot?
Unfortunately, at this time the club guns will not be available therefore only those who have their own firearms can attend the club. The range will be set up for you attending with standard targets in place therefore it is important that when booking a slot, you select “rifle” or “pistol”.
Do I need to wear a mask?
