Our annual HBSA Sporting Rifle day will take place on Saturday the 5th June at the usual venue, BSRC, Bisley. Covid restrictions have been eased but are still in place. Anyone having Covid symptoms or having had contact with anyone who has symptoms should not attend. Benches are being sanitised between shooters. 

We may take bookings for up to 30 people for the whole day.  No cash on the day - all bookings must be made online here >>>

Shooting is moving target, Running Deer at 100m (full bore, 8mm limit), Running Boar at 50m (.22RF) and also static targets at 100 yds. Open sights or telescopes. Static targets are boards (hardboard, plywood or similar 36” x 18" or 20”) which fit into frames and you place on them whatever paper target you wish to shoot. These are normally available but due to Covid restrictions you should bring your own. 

Sharing of any equipment and rifles is currently not allowed under NRA or BSRC rules.

Larger calibres and Rook Rifles may be allowed at RCO's discretion on static or moving target as Imperial Historics (IHAM) or Trafalgar practice.

Bring plenty of ammunition as on moving target with electronic scoring we can get through a lot of shooting. Please note that guest days are not yet permitted as close supervision of shooters is not possible due to social distancing rules. Therefore only FAC holders with a current SCC may attend, so please bring your FAC and SCC. In addition, bring any specific targets that you may wish to use on the static frames (and a stapler). HBSA range fees apply and booking and payment are now available online - see link above.

The Range Register must be completed with details of all of your rifles prior to shooting

You may wish to bring sandwiches or make your own arrangements for lunch. Social distancing is still recommended. 

Look forward to seeing you there for what is usually a jolly good HBSA day, with plenty of shooting.
