Bury Rifle Club

captains report
Is a well established target shooting club located between Bury and Bolton, Lancashire. The clubhouse has a five point range, clubroom, toilet and limited catering facilities and there is ample parking on the site.

It caters for .22 calibre small bore rifle shooting (prone) and .177 calibre air pistol and air rifle shooting (standing). The club is open on Monday and Friday evenings from 7.30pm to 10.30pm. The first part of the evening is devoted to .22 rifle followed by air pistol and rifle.

On most Wednesday evenings the club is open exclusively for air pistol and rifle shooting and on most Thursday afternoons and evenings it is open exclusively for .22 rifle competition shooting. Further details are available at the club.

Shooting is generally conducted to National Small-bore Rifle Association rules. Competitive shooting at all levels is available and encouraged, however those members wishing to shoot non-competitively for recreation are equally welcome.

Newcomers to the sport may use club equipment free of charge (under supervision). They may purchase ammunition for use strictly on the range after acceptance of their probationary membership application and payment of the appropriate fee. FAC holders may purchase ammunition from the club in the usual way.

Instruction for all disciplines is available from experienced club instructors for both novice and experienced shooters.

Application for membership is by completion of the appropriate form which is available at the club. Full membership is usually conditional upon satisfactory completion of a probationary period.

Juniors must be at least twelve years old and must have their application forms countersigned by a parent or guardian. Juniors under 15 must be accompanied by a responsible adult; we prefer this to be a parent or guardian for at least the first few visits. Over this age, unaccompanied attendance for juniors is at the discretion of the committee.
