Try Shooting

Come and try shooting with 18th Battalion Memorial Rifle Club

If you would like to try target shooting and you are not sure where to start, you are welcome to join us on a Sunday and participate in one of our target shooting matches.

For more information about who we are – CLICK HERE.

Allow for ½ a day – from 8:30am to noon.

The range program can be found HERE – so have a look and choose a date.  Once you have chosen a date, give James Taylor, 18Bn Club Captain a call on 0418 600626 to introduce yourself.

The type of matches we shoot can he found HERE.

On the day – you will need.

  • Hat
  • Closed shoes
  • Photo ID
  • Cash or Card – to pay the range fees’, temporary membership fee and purchase of ammunition (about $70 to $90 total, this is dependent on the calibre rifle you shoot)

Meet at our clubhouse at 8:30am to register, there is some paperwork to do first including a P650 form and a range induction containing important safety information – please read this before coming to the range – it can be found HERE.

Click HERE for all info about the P650 form from NSW Firearms Registry.

Once you have completed your induction – you pay your range fee and small joining fee as a Temporary Member.  This entitles you to attend four times in any financial year.

The Club will provide:

  • Hearing protection – if you have your own bring it along
  • Club rifle and ammunition
  • Supervision and coaching

All shooters also do butts duty.  This is manning the targets in the butts area of the range and scoring the targets for the shooters on the shooting mound.  The target mechanisms are mechanical and require some physical effort to operate.  For an overview/safety briefing of the target mechanisms and how to score the targets, please click HERE and go to page3.

Minors (between 12 and 18 years) are also allowed to shoot – however they must be accompanied by a supervising parent/guardian.

Once you have attended a few times and participated in some matches, you then have the opportunity to submit an application for full membership. Click HERE for the membership application form.

We look forward to seeing you at the range.
