Anyone not currently serving is not allowed to wear military camouflage at Bisley certainly and I believe it is generally not allowed on Military ranges under civilian use.I have a few sets of DPM and desert pattern camo. And to me it's just cheap gortex. I wear it for function and don't worry about the look.
I get the odd comment in the office of, 'Ah, I didn't see you there'. And that is with the desert pattern stuff that I keep in the car. But that's about it.
I do recall a friend once getting a bollocking on a civilian run rifle range, as the guy running it thought that camo had no place there, you think you are in the army etc. When he pointed out that he was still wearing his stripes, and that if aunty Liz saw fit to issue them, he saw no reason not to wear them. (And that he was RAF, so how dare he insult him calling him army!)
Elsewhere on ranges you might get away with it but clubs are becoming a bit more media savvy these days and nobody wants to give the press the impression of a paramilitary club or a bunch of armed "wannabe Rambos".
