WELCOME CROESO

Welcome to Bangor and District Practical Rifle and Pistol Club’s website. We are based in Bangor North Wales, and operate in the historic Vaynol tunnels, affording a great indoor shooting experience. As a family friendly club, we place great emphasis upon responsible ownership and maintaining a controlled environment in all our activities.

COVID: No club nights or competitions until further notice. Members may use the ranges for quiet private shooting. The rules about necessary precautions must still be obeyed. These are posted prominently in the clubhouse. Any visit to the club is at the member's own risk. Any person attending, unless under 18, MUST have had two doses of Covid vaccine. Work parties have resumed and there is a lot to do. Thank you to those who used to attend, and we look forward to meeting up again, along with anyone else who would like to lend a bit of a hand.

We are still operating restrictions and a considerable backlog and waiting list for membership has accumulated. We truly regret that we are unable to accept any new applications at all before April 2022 at the soonest.

Airgun shooters wishing to rejoin the informal airgun club should use the Contact page to make enquiry.
