There are six indoor rifle clubs in Christchurch. Three of these are based at the Drayton Range - the biggest range in the city with space for 20 shooters at once!
Each club has friendly members at all skill levels from brand new to Master Grade. New members are supplied with all necessary equipment and no firearms licence is required to attend. Whether you are starting out and need coaching and equipment, or if you just need a range to call home, joining a club is rewarding, enjoyable and social.
During the winter competition season which runs from April to September, the clubs compete against each other in individual and team competitions on Thursday nights. Clubs take turns hosting each other and providing the all-important supper.
Learning to shoot smallbore helps with all forms of shooting. Hunting, sporting, fullbore, shotgun and even pistol shooting all share the same fundamental skills. Smallbore can help you build on these skills while keeping out of the winter weather.
Contact the club that is closest to you about becoming a member — they would love to hear from you!
