Sporting, Benchrest & Gallery Rifle

The club facilities provide for shooting prone, 3- or 4-position or from the bench with sporting or other suitable smallbore rifles out to 100 metres (typically at 50 metres or 100 yards). Gallery shooting which requires different positions and distances is organised on a regular basis with two rifle and one pistol competition each month.

Club competitions are conducted under the rules applicable to the particular discipline. The technical rules as regards type and specification of Rifles and Equipment are laid down by the National Association which is the Governing body for that particular discipline,e.g. The NSAI rules apply to Silhouette Competitions and the NASRPC Rules apply to Gallery , Bench Rest and Field Sporter competitions. Dates and starting times are as set out in the Club Calendar. Most competitions start at 10:00 a.m. but this can be varied by the Competition Organiser if required.

The club is affiliated to the National Association of Sporting Rifle & Pistol Clubs and the National Silhouette Shooting Association of Ireland.

Silhouette Rifle

The club has been active in Silhouette shooting for many years and has provided many National and International winners over these years. As part of our range improvement programme, we have rebuilt the rifle range in order to comply with the latest Range Regulations . As part of this process we have installed 4 complete sets of Silhouette bays allowing  4 shooters to shoot a 40 target set of silhouettes simultaneously. These bays  are used once a month by the NSSAI who run a regular classification shoot on our range.

We cater for the smallbore rifle disciplines of the International Metallic Silhouette Shooting Union and the NRA of America.

The club is affiliated to the National Silhouette Association of Ireland.
