How do I Join?

Joining Us as a new members with no FAC or HOA club


If you already know a full member of STS then you are already one step ahead of the game, it is a legal requirement that a full member of the club must sponsor and vouch for your application to join the club.  Don’t worry if you do not know anyone at STS as you can either meet and talk to some of us at one of our events as a non shooting guest, or we can arrange to meet you before hand to say hello and to tell you all about the club. This will help you decide if our club is the right club for you to join and if target shooting is right for you.  It is also a chance for us to get to know you and see that everyone is both mature and responsible enough to be around live firearms.


If it is decided on both sides that Solent Target Shooting is a good match for an applicant then we will progress your application and send that off to the local police firearms licensing department which is also required to ensure that no concerns are raised about any individual having access to firearms.  As long as we don’t hear anything bad back from the department then your application will be looked over by the management committee of STS and as long as everyone is happy with your application then we will contact you to arrange your mandatory probationary training.
