Rifle shooting

Whether you’ve tried your hand at target shooting before or are new to the sport, Bournemouth Small Bore Rifle and Pistol Club is open to everyone, whatever your ability.

The club is affiliated to the National Small-bore Rifle Association and approved by the Home Office and Dorset Police. The club uses air weapons and .22 rimfire guns.

Based at Chapel Gate during the winter months, the club makes good use of its indoor, purpose-built range, The Heygate Vernon Range. This is a 25-yard facility with target retrieval system.

Once you’ve become a member of the club and depending on your capability, there is the opportunity to take part in competitions, at club, county or national level.
