At Ruislip we have 3 firing points at 20 yards for shooting from a standing position, shared between Light-Weight Sport Rifle (LSWR), Sporting Air Rifle and Air Pistol shooters. Therefore, Sport rifle shooters might be shooting alongside Airgun shooters.

The change to the law that effectively banned pistol shooting led to many of our members taking up Sport Rifle shooting as an alternative. More recently, the introduction of the "Longarm" .22 pistols has led to some of our members taking up these. There are however special legal restrictions on the ownership and use of Longarm Pistols that make them unsuitable for beginners.

Lightweight Sport Rifle

We provide the facilities, equipment and instruction to allow members to start shooting. As you improve, you will reach a point where you recognise the need to have your own equipment that is not shared with other club members. We can guide you through the buying process and ensure that you don't make an expensive mistake.

How to start

Before you can start to shoot, you will need to join the Club. If you decide within the first month that you don't want to continue, we will cancel your membership and refund your fee, minus a £5.00 charge. When you join, you will have Provisional membership. You will be asked to keep a record of your attendances on your membership card. After 6 months, your membership will be reviewed, and if you have shown that you have attended regularly and have been instructed successfully in the various aspects of shooting, including acting safely and responsibly at all times, you will be given Full membership. If you have not met the conditions above, you may be asked to remain a provisional member for a further period, or (in extreme cases) your membership may be revoked. This process may be relaxed, at the discretion of the management committee, for FAC holders with suitable references from another rifle club.

Benefits

  • Safe, relatively cheap and easy to try.
  • Indoors - so you don't have to get wet when it rains!
  • Not physically demanding.

Facilities

Our Clubhouse and indoor range is situated near West Ruislip station, and open for these disciplines on Tuesday and Thursday evenings, from 7:00pm. Members pay a £1.00 range fee per session which includes the cost of practice targets.

Equipment for use by members

The club has a limited range of equipment for members to use, free of charge.

Instruction and Coaching

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

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.
