We are only a small Club and the number of requests for the air rifle range have been numerous in the last two weeks.

We are presently full on the air-side.

Please enquire for joining the air-side May 2020 onwards.

Air Section

Our air section was established in 2000 and has gone from strength to strength. Starting with only 4 lanes, in 2003 we have continually expanded and improved the range facilities. The rebuilding of the Air Range in 2012, increased the available facilities and enabled disabled access.

We shoot in Yorkshire postal competitions and hope to provide shoulder to shoulder shoots against other local clubs. Other competitions run for members include bench-rest, pistol and field target.

With floodlit facilities allowing shooting at 10 to 25 yards both during the day and at night Aireborough is one of the best grounds in the country.

Due to the large number of members who wish to use the facilities, the ranges can be in use seven days per week but new members are welcomed on Wednesdays.

Note:

Due to being reserved by the Leeds University firearms club on a Thursday evening, the premises are closed to Aireborough members.

Remember, never leave a person under the age of 18 alone near your airgun, failure to comply could result in your club membership being terminated without recompense.

 

Keep air rifles/pistols under lock and key

It is an offence for under 18s to gain unauthorized access to any air weapon.

Owners of air weapons are liable to a fine if they do not take reasonable precautions to stop unauthorized access to their air weapon by people under the age of 18.

For the vast majority of responsible air weapon owners, keeping their weapon safely locked up is routine. But when an air weapon is allowed to get in to the wrong hands the consequences can be tragic.

Although serious incidents are rare, there have been cases in recent years where children have got hold of carelessly stored airguns that have resulted in severe injuries and even deaths.

If you do not keep your airgun safely away from children you will be prosecuted.

How to keep your weapon safe:

  • store your air weapon out of sight and separately from pellets

  • use a robust, lockable cupboard and keep the keys separate and secure

  • always store your air weapon inside a house rather than in an out building, such as a garden shed

  • never store a cocked or loaded air weapon

  • when using your air weapon, keep it under close supervision and never leave it unattended
