Shooting Links

Shooting is a big sport with many different disciplines, full bore, small bore, clay and airgun are well known but each of these has its own variations. Hursley Rifle & Pistol Club is focussing on air guns at the moment and we are striving to provide facilities that will provide a friendly atmosphere and a place where both novices and the more experienced shot can come and improve their skills. We want to get and keep people interested in a sport that has a long and illustious history in this country.

We have affilaited with the National Small-Bore Rifle Association (http://www.nsra.co.uk/) because they are the governing body for shooting in this country and provide an excellent framework for a club to operate. Our affiliation provides us with insurance and access to training and competitions so there will be plenty to keep us vibrant and interesting over the coming years.

Many of you will be aware of 10m Rifle and Pistol disciplines, these are Olympic sports and Great Britain has a good record in both. However how many of you have heard of Field Target (FT), Hunter Field Target (HFT) or Iron Plate Action Shooting? These disciplines are every bit as competitive as 10m with regular competitions being held up and down the country.

Below are some links to whet your appetite, take a look around and if you want any more information please contact us the club.
