You may already know some modern techniques of shooting, but we ask almost all new members to complete the course. It covers essential safety considerations, basic training and some important considerations essential to the way we run our club sessions. By undertaking the instruction course, we can be confident that new members will fit in with Ruislip clup routine and they won't feel self-concious about disrupting others members' enjoyment of their sport. This leads to new members being accepted into the camaraderie of the club from the start. When a new member is already an established shooter with another club, the committee may decide that all or part of the course is not necessary. We will take up references from the member's former club in order to help us make this decision.
