Various competitions and practical events are held throughout the year at the club range. There are Rifle/Carbine and Pistol Practical competitions every fortnight.
A practical competition is a discipline that requires speed, accuracy and a slight degree of fitness. Whilst safety is paramount at all times, a course of fire is laid out with a start and finish position, the clock is started and you are scored on how fast and how accurately, you can fire a designated number of shots into specific targets, in a particular order. To make these competitions more interesting and challenging we also have four electronic, computer controlled, turning targets.
A Range Officer is responsible for the safe running of the range and an Assistant Range Officer always accompanies the shooter; this ensures the safety of both shooters and bystanders at all times.
