    UPDATE:

    Shooting will begin at 11.00 on both days.

    Both rimfire & fullbore competititons.

    €10 & €5 re-entry

    Bring your own ammo.

    Things may change depending on circumstances. The one thing that won't change will be that the emphasis will be on fun.

    If your new to range shooting please don't feel intimidated. Listen to the Range Officers (R.O) & if in just doubt ask a R.O. R.O.'s will be wearing yellow hi-viz jackets. If your not an R.O. please don't wear anything in yellow hi-viz.

    "iron sights" at 100m would be Classics lad

    Looking forward to this now

    Just to add both the 25m & 100m firing points are covered so if the weather is wet you'll be dry while shooting
