The Old Sergeants Mess SC

The Old Sergeants Mess is a vibrant, happy and sociable club, dedicated to the sport of shooting.  


Our members tend to be individuals who enjoy shooting, whether for competition, practice, or as quality time with themselves after a busy work schedule.  


The Old Sergeants Mess Shooting Club (OSMSC), offers members, regular shooting (3 or 4 times a month), tuition in a variety of disciplines, probationary courses, support for all shooting activities and a character clubhouse.  


All this with firearms storage, armoury services, quality catering and member services, make the OSMSC a very good place to be  on Bisley National Shooting Centre.

OSM History


Historically the OSM has been known as the club that specialises  in Scoped Rifle Shooting, McQueen and Fieldcraft,  as well as Shotgun expertise and excellent training.


The McQueen shooting and training is supported by C.Sgt.Jan Berry, who has won a trophy or two at the Imperial Meetings.  He runs regular courses in this challenging discipline, encouraging others to complete and improve their skills.  The OSMSC and the British Sniper Club are now affiliated, allowing us to develop our expertise and take this sport further in 2015.


Fieldcraft is another specialist skill.  A good shot has developed fine shooting skills, keen senses and intuition.  Unlike competition where you get sighting shots and 10 tries, the Field Shooter spends many hours looking for a suitable target and may only use 2 rounds per month on cold barrels.


Over the last 3 years, we have developed our reputation in Gallery Rifle.   We have also expanded into the world of Shotguns.  Under the expert eyes of Dan Archer, we have regular summer shoots in DTL, Skeet and Trap, and winter shooting at 4 sporting layouts in the Surrey area.  We also offer Black Powder in association with London All Guns and target shotgun with the support and guidance of James Harris. Pistol shooting is available on our regular trips to Northern Ireland & Poland.

The Clubhouse


The clubhouse itself is open 51 weekends over the year with shooting on at least 40 of them.  We hold regular guest shoots, allowing members to intruduce their family and freinds to the joy of shooting sports.

We cater on shoot days and for affiliate club functions, favouring game meats alongside the more usual shooting offerings.


We have this web-site, a facebook page, twitter account and we use email to contact our members, but above all this technology, we love a good chat at the bar, long discussions on the lastest shooting gadgets, friendly banter in the armoury, a beer on the excellent verandah and whats more, the kettle is always ready for a warming cup of tea or coffee.


The club is the first on the right as you enter the Bisley NSC site and we can be contacted on [email protected] or 01483 799998.  We welcome visitors every weekend, so please do join us for a beer or a brew when you are on camp.


Wishing you all good, safe shooting  !
