Come and Try!

Experience the challenge and thrill of long range target rifle shooting

North Arm Rifle Club welcomes those wanting to take up long range shooting to come and try their hand at Target Rife, F – Class or FTR rifle shooting on our allocated Come and Try days.

Bookings are essential, allowing us to prepare for and provide the best experience possible for you.  Ultimately, our goal is to introduce and encourage new people to the sport that will become enthusiastic long range shooters and potentially long term club members.

Our Come and Try Days have been postponed until the start of 2021, as COVID restrictions have impacted how we deliver this service. If you are interested in finding out more, contact Des or visit us on the range on Saturday afternoons. 

Ring Des on 0408 063 896 to book a spot.

The disciplines shot at North Arm Rifle Club are:

  • Target Rifle
  • F–Class
  • FTR
  • ANZAC .303

Dedicated Come and Try mornings have been appointed on the first Saturday of every month unless otherwise specified.  Starting at 9:30 am on the 300 metre mound, a team of highly experienced accuracy nuts will introduce each group of approximately 8 people to Fullbore shooting.

Come and Try costs $50 per person and includes 10 rounds of ammunition, equipment use, range fee and insurance.

Under careful guidance and instruction, each person will fire 5 .308 rounds through a T/R rifle using peep sights and a sling.  The following 5 .308 rounds will be shot from a scoped F-class rifle off a front rest and rear bag.

For those who are new to shooting and don’t have their own rifle or firearms license, presenting photo identification, signing the range register and filling out a form is all it takes to get yourself behind one of our club rifles with ammunition provided and a friendly highly experienced shooter by your side, to ensure you get the most from your shooting experience. We frequently introduce people of all ages above 14, both male and female to our sport. We encourage new shooters and welcome new memberships.

Visitors that are already licensed and have their own equipment are welcome to join us for a $20 range fee.  Winchester .308 ammunition is available for purchase.

Remember, bookings are essential so call Des on 0408 063 896 and book in today.

We hope to see you soon
