Description

Want to run Target Sports (Air Gun)  but have your own NRSA qualified tutor/instructor/coach and equipment?

A new target sports range is being constructed starting in August 2022 which replaces the old range.  The new range is being located to the rear of the Hideaway and campfire circle thus providing significantly improved access which is level and mostly hard surfaced.

The range consists of:

  • Range size:  17m (length) by 13m (width)
  • Firing point: 12m (width) by 3.5 m (depth), concrete surface,  roof above (open sides).
  • Target holders/pellet catchers:
    • 14 or 17cm target holder/pellet catcher mounted on height adjustable tripod stands, 6 available
    • can be set to any firing distance up to 15m from the firing point.
  • Floodlighting for evening/low ambient light use.
  • All weather range surface (backfilled geogrids suitable for wheelchair traffic).
  • Ramp access with handrails to/from the firing point, 1 metre wide.

The adjoining campfire circle can be used as a waiting area/viewing point, if not being used by others.
