Target Shooting North Otago administers the sport of Smallbore Rifle Shooting in North Otago. There are three clubs in the region which offer the opportunity for people to experience this sport, which is enjoyed by male and female, young and old, able bodied and people with disabilities, people with good eyesight or those who have the need to wear glasses,in fact people from all walks of life.
You can be as competitive as you like; or just come along for the sociality. There is no obligation to enter competitions but if you do then competitions are graded so you are competing against shooters of the same ability as yourself.
Smallbore rifle shooting is an “Equal Opportunity” sport. Men and women compete on equal terms.
Age is no restriction on shooting. Provided you are big enough to hold the rifle then you can participate. We have members of school age right through to those well past retirement age.
All new members are given a good grounding in firearms safety and the safe handling of rifles. All shooting is supervised by range officers.
