About BFTO

Follow us on Facebook


This website has been set up to provide information to potential, as well as existing members. The Club provides a safe and attractive open-air environment where both paper and metal silhouette targets can be shot. This can be made as simple or as demanding as required by the individual shooter so as to cater to the " plinking for pleasure" as well as the more competitive shooters in the Club.

Visiting BFTO







We have some club guns for visitors to use so you do not need your own gun to shoot at BFTO.

If you would like to arrange a visit please book an appointment with our Membership Secretary

by emailing  membership.enquiries@bfto.org.uk .

Our advice to a complete novice would normally be to come and have a go with the club guns first, have a look at all the other setups that people have, (ask nicely and most will let you have a go) maybe come to one or two of the Club League competitions, and decide what you want to do before spending any hard cash.

We would always give the same advice: ask other members, many have been doing this a while, all will quite happily chat about anything airgun. Actually, it's hard to stop some of them! The facilities at the club are excellent; we have two floodlit rifle ranges with covered firing points, a floodlit pistol and vintage rifle range also with covered firing points, plus sixteen acres of woodland available for competition courses.

Full members can shoot on the covered ranges almost every day of the year with the exception of one evening in January when we close for our AGM and when work parties are scheduled. The centrally heated clubhouse is available to full members at all times and has free tea and coffee, a fridge and microwave. We have access to proper, flush toilets, in a block just 50yds or so from the clubhouse.

The club itself is situated within the grounds of The National Shooting Centre, Bisley, meaning all of its clubs and facilities are within easy reach.
