Air Rifle Shooting
Air Rifle Shooting is an Olympic sport and one in which the United Kingdom has an excellent record. It requires concentration, patience and skill, it is an addictive activity that suits all ages, levels of fitness and physical ability.
Obviously safety is paramount so our qualified and experienced shooting instructors will begin the session with a range safety briefing followed by instruction on the operation of our carefully selected child friendly .22 or .177 calibre air rifles.
Once the basics of safely cocking, loading, closing and shooting the rifle have been achieved the group can learn to improve their stance and control their breathing leading to higher and higher scores for individuals or teams.
Our purpose built covered range allows groups to shoot at competition targets at a variety of distances as well as a large selection of reactive fun targets.
