Code of Conduct.
The club accepts membership of people of any age or sex but we do ask that any Junior members/visitors be accompanied at all times by a guardian/parent. All members/visitors are covered by the clubs own insurance at every club event.

It is a condition of entry into this club that the members must help with the running of their club (i.e. painting targets, clearing the shot lead, setting up/taking down etc).

Conditions of Use.
We accept all standards of marksmanship and all levels of shooting equipment but dangerous or unsafe behaviour will not be tolerated!

We do not permit the use of firearms. Only Air Rifles producing less than 12FPE muzzle energy and Pistols producing less than 6FPE may be used on club ranges. We are an airgun club not a firearms club. The shooting of any firearm would be a criminal offence and would invalidate our insurance and put the future of the club at risk.

Club ‘Officials'.
The club is steered by a management committee of 4. who respond to the ideas, suggestions and input from the club members themselves.

Club Administrator: Darren Taylor
Club Treasurer: Karl Taylor
Club Development: Stephen Wardle
Membership Secretary: Harry Sharples

Membership requires that you agree and abide by the constitution and bye-laws of RAGC.

Air weapon misuse is a serious concern for the shooting community and society in general.

At Rochdale Air Gun Club we believe that the best way to counter this problem is through education. Statistics show that a young person properly trained in the safe and correct use of guns is very unlikely to offend with one later in life. We believe that our policy of educating young people in the safe use of guns instills self discipline, and that remains for life.

Our participation in Game and Country fairs shows the general public the true nature of the shooting community, and helps to dispel the myths generated by the less responsible sections of the media.

The club works hard at being a good neighbour and discretion is extremely important to us, please therefore be courteous to all members of the public you may encounter.
