      Shooting sports are full of surprises

      • Challenging (Count the ways! See below.)
      • Fun to spice up every weekend
      • Builds character, discipline and skills
      • Inexpensive (eg, compared with golf or boating)
      • Friendly (shooters will talk your head off!)
      • With competitions to challenge those who want fast action against the clock (like Western Action) as well as those not so active (as an extreme case, Libby Kosmala, nine times Paralympic gold medallist in air rifle, who, incidentally, baulked originally at the idea of taking up the sport in 1970)
      • For all ages from sub-teens to seniors (a 2006 gold and silver medal winner in skeet started shooting at age 11)
      • For both genders (that champ, Lauryn Mark, is both an Aussie and a woman, as is 2008 IPSC World Standard Lady Champion, Claire Giles)

      A hundred games to play (not counting hunting)

      You can take part in dozens of different shooting disciplines. Most have many divisions for various categories of firearm, creating a vast variety of challenges. At our range, we shoot pistol and rifle in both rimfire and centrefire. And shotgun (as part of Western Action). Catering for air pistol and rifle is in the pipeline.

      Gain your safe handling certification

      Do this at the range under the expert tutelage of an SSAA (Sporting Shooters Association of Australia) qualified testing officer. This helps you gain your shooting licence. From there you can apply for a Permit to Acquire your own firearm.

      Gain your hunter's R-licence

      Do it at the range under the expert tutelage of our training officer specialising in gaining hunting/conservation status with the NSW Game Council, which entitles you to book shoots in NSW state forests.

      Most weekends at a well-equipped range
