About

Killin Clay Club are a friendly and informal clay target shooting club that meet once a month for sporting clay target competitions.

Non members and novices are most welcome to our shoots. Entry fees are listed here.

If you do not hold a Shotgun Certificate then please contact us prior to attending so that we can meet our obligations under Section 11(6) of the Firearms Act 1968.

If you’re a novice and you’d like to come along and have a go, then (subject to the conditions below) we can provide all the equipment you’ll need and can give you an informal lesson and some 1 on 1 guidance. Please contact us for details.

Facilities

Please Note: only fibre wad cartridges are to be used at the club

Cartridges are available to purchase on shoot days. Please present your valid Shotgun Certificate to buy cartridges. Current prices are listed here.

We shoot at two grounds a few minutes apart on the Auchlyne & Suie Estate; the “Field” in the summer months, and the “Quarry” in Winter. Conditions on the day may necessitate a site switch, but they are very close to each other so just try the other site if no-one is there!

Field shooting ground

The Field

Our log cabin clubhouse welcomes shooters to the Field ground, where undulating terrain and natural cover allow for a wide variety of trap placements.

Our six mobile Promatic traps are supplemented by a DTL trap house, allowing us to run DTL/ABT competitions as well as Compak

quarry shooting ground

The Quarry

Situated just a few minutes drive from the Field site, the Quarry provides a variety of trap layouts for all abilities.

Traps can be placed high up the side ridge of the quarry to offer High Pheasant and overhead targets, whilst the floor of the quarry allows for a challenging Rabbit or Bolting Fox.

Both the Field and Quarry are ‘off-grid’ and as such have no toilet or catering facilities. Needless to say it can be wet underfoot: please bring appropriate footwear and clothing.

Conditions

Any person, under 15 years of age, using a shotgun must be supervised by an adult (over 21yrs). (Firearms Act 1968, Section 22(3)). Prohibited persons as defined by Section 21 of the Firearms Act 1968* must not be permitted to be in possession of guns or ammunition.

No person who appears to be intoxicated or under the influence of drugs will be allowed to be in possession of guns.

The owners of any shotguns used on the site are reminded that the security of those guns remains solely their responsibility

*SECTION 21 OF THE FIREARMS ACT 1968: It is an offence for someone who is prohibited by Section 21 to have a firearm or ammunition in his or her possession at any time. Section 21 applies to anyone who has been sentenced to imprisonment, or to youth custody or detention in a young offender’s institution, for three months or more. The period for why they are prohibited depends on the length of their sentence; if the sentence was longer than three years the prohibition is for life. If the sentence was three months or more but less than three years, the prohibition lasts for five years from the date of their release. It is an offence for a person to transfer, let or hire, give or lend a firearm or ammunition to someone whom he/she knows has reasonable grounds for believing to be prohibited by Section 21.
