Welcome to Clyde Valley Pistol Club

Please note that we are not accepting new members at this time

 

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.
