Can I Have a Go?

Sure can!

There are very few conditions that will make you ineligible to take part. As long as you don't suffer from anything that could cause you to act in an unsafe manner with a loaded firearm you will be able to take part in preliminary safety instruction, range protocol, how to use the rifle and, finally, shoot some targets.

Smallbore Rifle shooting is one of the few sports that does not favour a particular gender. Neither does it require a high physical ability. Hey, you don't even need to have 20-20 vision. In spite of this it can be very competitive, in fact as competitive as you allow it to be. Your greatest competitor though, will be your own mind.

Simply contact someone from the club nearest you or just turn up early on their club night and someone will gladly accommodate you. As with many sports and activities, you won't know it's for you until you give it a go.

Clubs will be commencing their Indoor season on the first club night in March.

Cost: $7.50 per ten-shot card with rifle, ammo, training and all gear provided.
