.22LR Subsonic Precision Shooting
As we are the best gun shop in South Devon with the best customers we have put together a precision .22lr shooting club based at the shop but using Budleigh Target Shoot club range in Moretonhampstead. The club is exclusively for customers of The Country Sports Shop and is not competition based, it is precision shooting based. There are no league tables, no "who's the best shot" status just shooters testing their skills (and their rifles) at ridiculously small targets such as matchsticks, playing cards (side on), Know Your Limits challenges and of course our very own 100 yard paintball challenge!
The club will be shooting evenings hopefully twice a month during daylight saving and once per month on a weekend during standard GMT. Basic club rules apply such as the use of breech flags, hearing protection, and following range orders (these will be explained before each shoot whilst on the range) but the emphasis is on having fun and challenging yourself each week and hopefully improving your shooting.
The Pro-Shooter Paintball Challenge
is on, you will have five shots to check your dialling or hold overs at 100
yards then ten shots at the .50 cal paintball at 100 yards (yes half MOA with a
.22LR). Certificates will be issued to those that shoot it and we will have a
Wall of Fame on the Pro-Shooter Precision Rifle Club Facebook page.
The Playing Card Challenge at 30
yards is ten shots to shoot six matchsticks followed by a playing card edge on
(yes sideways on)
Long Range Precision Shooting
We have now formed an NRA Affiliated club to shoot on a monthly basis at longer ranges, out to 600 yards using non-HME firearms, .22 to .30 cal centre fire and everything in between. We will be using local ranges, one towards Dartmouth and one in Somerset. We have Sundays booked from July to the end of the year with more dates to follow shortly. The club is fully insured, Home Office approved and you must already have a Firearm Certificate in order to join. The club is exclusively for customers of The Country Sports Shop.
We have five NRA qualified RCO's within the club and a wealth of long range shooting experience. the idea behind the Long Range Precision Shooting isn't so that you can shoot deer over 200 yards away, it is for you to develop as a shooter. Don't worry that you may not have shot long distance before, we have members of the club that fully understand the principles of long range and are willing to assist people to get on target out to 600 yards and possibly beyond.
Shoot Deer Targets Out Beyond 100 Yards on Sunday 24th June
designed to be a fun stalking event about shot placement, knowing your rifle
ballistics and bullet drop and using guidelines of law and permissions when out
stalking. Great for the novice and challenging for the more experienced. Using
sticks fence posts car bonnet, bipod and free standing. You will be able to
range find and hit kill zone that will be a bit smaller than the general kill
zone of a deer. It will also have a few thing to throw you and make you think of
laws and permissions that affect deer stalkers and stalking.
Fee for the days
shooting is £35.00, burgers tea/coffee will be available, please book with Sue
