Maidstone Pistol Club
Our current smallbore range is in Yalding, Kent where we shoot .22 rifles and pistols on 3 Monday nights a month.
We also shoot Practical Shotgun at a local outdoor range and Mini Rifle and Target Pistol/Rifle at Bisley every 6-8 weeks.
Originally a pistol club, we have converted to rifles since pistols were banned in 1997. This probably explains our informal yet enthusiastic attitude towards all forms of shooting.
Every 6-8 weeks we shoot at Bisley. We shoot at ranges from 25 to 1200 yards. A great variety of rifles are used, Service rifles, Target rifles, Blackpowder Cartridge and Muzzle loading rifles.
The dynamic marksmanship discipline of Practical Shooting requires a blend of accuracy, power, and speed so that you acquire a winning combination. The discipline includes multiple targets, moving targets, targets that react when hit, penalty targets, or even partially covered targets, obstacles, and movement. These all play a part in the challenging sport of practical shooting.
Our current smallbore range is in Yalding, Kent where we shoot .22 rifles and pistols on 3 Monday nights a month. This is an excellent introduction to rifle and pistol shooting where you can learn the basics in a safe, friendly atmosphere.
