Fullbore Rifle

Fullbore rifle shooting is arguably the most demanding of shooting disciplines. Although not an Olympic sport, it is included in the Commonwealth Games. There can be little as rewarding as doing battle with a continuously shifting wind to place a shot into the 11-inch bulls-eye 1,000 yards away!

As Ruislip's own range is for airguns and smallbore (.22) calibre only, being 25 yards and indoor, we shoot Fullbore rifle at the NRA ranges at Bisley, the National Shooting Centre. Unfortunately we are therefore unable to provide facilities for beginners. Established shooters, including smallbore rifle shooters, are however welcome to join us. Beginners would be well advised to contact the National Rifle Association and inquire about the NRA Probationary Members courses.

Facilities

We are affiliated to the London and Middlesex Rifle Association, and use their clubhouse and other facilities at Bisley.

Instruction and Coaching

We have a number of experienced and qualified instructors and coaches.

Competitive environment

We compete in team leagues and matches, as well as individual competitions.

Our Purpose

The purpose of the Club is to promote the sport of Target Shooting and provide facilities for responsible members of the local community to participate in the sport. We provide equipment and instruction for beginners, with friendly competition and coaching for those developing their skills, and a supportive environment for members aspiring to greater things - i.e. county competitions and beyond.

Local Community

Ruislip is a town to the west of London, in the London Borough of Hillingdon and the County of Middlesex. The nearest other places are Uxbridge to the south-west, Harrow to the east, and Watford (Herts.) to the north.

Ruislip Rifle Club has strong links with the Middlesex Small-bore Rifle Association, and has represented Hillingdon on several occasions in the London Mayors' Inter-Boroughs Rifle Competition. Our record in this competition over recent years is second to none, as we have won for 8 of the last 10 years, including 6 years running (from 2007 to 2012) – the longest unbroken series of wins in the competition's history of over 100 years.

Proposed HS2 High-Speed Railway

The proposed HS2 project, as it is currently planned, will require the Club's premises to be demolished and rebuild on a new site. Whilst we hope that the proposals do not come to fruition, we have to work on the assumption that they will, and are liasing with HS2 in order to find the best way forward for the club. We are hopeful that, if suitable land can be found, we can get the new range built before we have to vacate the existing building, thus ensuring that we can continue shooting.

Club Profile

2017 Team Photo

Although a relatively small club, we have enjoyed plenty of success over the 70-odd years we have been in existence, both as a Club in team competitions, and through our members' individual achievements.

We regularly supply several members of the Middlesex County Rifle Team, and have had members representing England, Scotland and Great Britain on numerous occasions.

In recent years we have achieved some notable successes in the London Mayors' Association annual rifle competition, providing the winning team for the London Borough of Hillingdon for eight of the last ten years.

However, we do not let success go to our heads and recognise that none of it would be possible without beginners.

Target Shooting as a Sport

Target Shooting as a sport can be enjoyed by all; young and old, male and female, able- and not-so-able-bodied. We have members from 15 to 85, and everyone can compete together in individual and team competitions. We accept members over the age of 14, but we do take youngsters of 12 providing they are capable of handling the firearms safely. For all juniors, we ask that a responsible adult agrees to accompany them on the range. Target Shooting helps to develop concentration, self-discipline, perseverance, self-reliance, self-confidence and a sense of responsibility.
Shooting has been an Olympic sport since the inception of the modern Olympics in 1896.

Clubhouse Facilities

Clubroom

Apart from the all-important range, the clubhouse boasts a spacious club room in which to wait for your detail and socialise with other members.

There is a separate gun room dedicated to setting up and packing away equipment.

We are sorry, but we are unable to accept any more new members for the time being due to the anticipated closure of our facilities to make way for the construction of HS2. If/when we are in a position to accept new members again we will post a notice here inviting you to contact us.
