Safe Shooting is always a top of our list!


Safety Brief; this is read at the start of all shoots and competitors MUST be present to take part.

  • ALWAYS treat your gun as being loaded at all times, do not use a scope as a carry handle & please carry your gun muzzle down at all times.

  • Guns may only be loaded when you’re at the firing line & only when pointing down range.

  • NEVER Rest the Muzzle on your foot.

  • Multi shot rifles must have the magazines removed & be un-cocked between lanes, fixed magazine rifles must only be loaded with one pellet at a time.

  • Reducing apertures or optical aids fitted to a scope are not allowed.

  • Your trigger finger must not be past the peg or firing line

  • ANY SHOOTER warned twice for a safety violation will be disqualified, in the case of a junior, the responsible parent or guardian will also be asked to leave.

  • One blast of the whistle means stop. Two blasts means all clear (continue shooting)

  • On hearing one blast, if your air rifle is loaded please discharge into the ground safely, at least 8 yards downrange.

  • Do not shoulder your rifle, or look through your scope during a ceasefire.

  • Only one shot is allowed at each target, no sighting shots are allowed,

  • If a target is thought to be faulty, call for a marshal (wearing high visibility vests). Only marshals may cross the firing line.

  • Two blasts on the whistle means that course is clear and you may continue shooting.
