Welcome to the DAC website!

The Dunfermline Airgun Club (a Police Scotland approved club) was established 1984 as the main airgun club for the Dunfermline and Fife area. Over the years the club has grown in size and we now have members from all over Scotland, our current member subscription is over 50.

The Club is affiliated to STS-Air(Scottish Target Shooting) and all members are covered by NSRA Insurance subject to the observance of the club rules and the insurer’s terms and conditions while on the club grounds.

Air Gun (Weapon) Licensing Update

As of 1st of Jan 2017 ALL airguns (in Scotland) now have to be held under an AWC. With respect to this Legislation it has been decided by Dunfermline Airgun Club that anybody who wishes to shoot / compete at DAC must hold an AWC  that allows them to use an air weapon.

NO AWC = NO SHOOTING (Exceptions for Hosted HFT shoots, Please ask Chris(club Sec) for more info: chrisbrunton@btinternet.com).

Please note that if you do not have your AWC  with you, you will not be allowed to shoot and will be asked to leave the ground.

Producing your document at a previous competition is NOT acceptable – We ask you have your certificate with you while shooting on our ranges.

Club Membership

New members (looking to) or interested in joining us at DAC should apply to join the waiting list by contacting the Club Secretary by email at chrisbrunton@btinternet.com. The club is now accepting  new members from March 2022 , when waiting list applicants will receive priority.

Juniors are always welcome at DAC but must be under the supervision of a full club member and be accompanied by a parent or guardian at all times when visiting or shooting at the club.
