Visiting Guests

As a Home Office Approved Gun club we are eager to promote the world of shooting and encourage new people into a safe and well disciplined sport. However, there are strict licensing laws and regulations that we adhere to and enforce.

Please remember that becoming a member of Harlow Practical Club will entail a 6 month probationary period.  Harlow Practical Club operates an, annually reviewed, ‘invite-only’ membership policy.

CCTV is in operation for security and safety of all that use the range.

INDOOR Range/s : Sorry, we are not accepting any visitors or guests at the indoor range/s.

INDOOR and OUTDOOR Ranges - Essex & Kent membership now open.

Arranging a visit

Visits to our club can be arranged for potential new members, so that we can meet you and you can meet us.

If a visit is arranged please don't expect to shoot, you must become a probationary member before you are allowed to use the club gun. Geological location in relation to your home address should also be considered before applying as we are limited at the present time to numbers and we expect our members to shoot regularly.

No visitors/guests are permitted at the outdoor shotgun range/s. Only HPC members who hold the appropriate 'Range Pass'
