The Harlow Practical Club was formed in 1985.
It has successfully adapted since the Pistol Ban in 1997, from a mainly pistol
into a leader in various disciplines such as mini rifle.
The club is Home Office Approved and is also affiliated with the UKPSA and NRA.
The Harlow Practical Club prides
it's self on a friendly atmosphere whilst ensuring a competitive edge.
Club members are from all walks
of life and vary in age, nationality and sex.
club boast to have amongst its members some of the top UK shooters. At
least three represented Britain in world shooting competitions.
Amongst Harlow's members there is a wealth of
knowledge, from gun related subjects to the most in-depth 'general knowledge'
you could imagine, which proves very interesting when you
are waiting your turn to shoot!!!
Since the initiation of the Mini Rifle
Discipline, Harlow has raised the interest of competitive shooters by organizing
& successfully running graded matches.
The success of Harlow Club relies heavily on
the long hours & hard work that the club secretary puts in, closely backed
by the active five who put many hours into making the club a success.
Harlow Club would welcome a few more members turning up, not only to shoot, but
to join in with the work parties, and hey, it's a great social event too!!
A new member must
expect to be scrutinized and trained through safety procedures, this
is the most that is expected of them.
A new shooter will only
be permitted to shoot at the pace in which the range officer feels is
within the capabilities of that individual shooter.
Top marks are awarded
for gun safety, nobody cares if you hit the target! Guidance, tips &
support are always at hand, after all, we all started with no
knowledge and look where we ended up! (No sarcastic comments from
anyone that knows us please!)
At the end of the day if you want to shoot
for fun or competitively, we can truly say that Harlow Practical is the best club in
town. (And we would swear this under oath)!
