Smallbore rifle shooting is the most widely practiced form of target rifle shooting, and is an Olympic Sport as well as being included in the Commonwealth Games. Olympic-style international matches, including an annual programme of world cup meetings, are governed by the International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF).

Prone Rifle Shooting

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. The major pieces of equipment that you will need, a rifle and a spotting scope, will last you for decades if chosen wisely and well looked after.

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.


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


Our Clubhouse and indoor range is situated near West Ruislip station, and open for Rifle shooting on Monday and Friday evenings, from 7:30pm. 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 range of rifles and other equipment for members to use, free of charge.

Instruction and Coaching

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

Competitive environment

We compete in several postal team leagues, as well as individual competitions. We record everyone's scores and publish a list of average scores each month. You might be surprised how competitive that gets at times, as well as helping you to see how much you are improving, or whether you could benefit from some coaching.
