Rifle







NSRG offers a 100 yard outdoor range with covered shooting positions and a 10 metre heated indoor air rifle/pistol range.  Currently the club is running a regular .22 cal Bench Rest meet and a .22 cal Metallic Silhouette meet every month and also has organized weekly meets for those interested in air rifle/pistol.

 

The club also has the facilities and equipment to host International Target Rifle events and 10 Metre Air Rifle Running Target events.  These rifle programs are offered for our club members and others to enjoy.






.22 Cal Bench Rest

Ten shots to score are fired at each of 8 bulls placed at 100 yards, in addition sighting shots may be taken at the sighting bulls at any time. Wind flags are set out. While any one may enter with any .22 rimfire rifle, best results require a heavy barrel target rifle with a good optical sight; the shooter also needs rests for the fore-end and butt of the rifle. There is no prize except the honour of winning.

  • Matches are usually held in Bay 1 of the range at NSRG.
  • Coffee and cookies are provided.
  • The entry fee is $3.00 for NSRG members / $5.00 for non-members.

All are welcome!

.22 Cal Metallic Silhouette

A set of targets consists of four types of animal shaped steel silhouettes: chickens, pigs, turkeys and rams, five of each kind.  The different sized animal shaped targets are placed at 40, 60, 77 and 100 yard distances.  The event is shot standing.  A medium weight .22 cal rimfire rifle with a low power optical sight is best.  No other equipment is needed.  One shot is taken at each silhouette; to count as a hit the target must be knocked off its stand. The highest possible score in a round of shooting is 20.

  • Matches are usually held in Bay 3 of the range. 
  • The entry fee is $3.00 for NSRG members / $5.00 for non-members. 
  • Coffee and cookies are provided.
