Range Calendar / Shoots

We have a Club Range Day every 3rd Sunday of the month. This is a chance to use your hunting rifle or your .22 rabbit gun. In the positions that you would use in the field – prone, sit, kneel and standing. The more familiar you become with your rifle the less chance you have of missing or worse wounding an animal and having it die slowly because you cannot find it.

This Month – Sunday 18th October 2020, 10am Start

This month’s range shoot will be Centrefire with Rimfire Running Boar.  Bring your lunch, your family, and have some fun.
