Bury Rifle Club is a small and friendly target shooting club that is run entirely by the membership.
We would like to extend a warm welcome to men and women of all ages to visit the club to experience target shooting for themselves.
Bury Rifle Club is a well established target shooting club located between Bury and Bolton, Lancashire. The clubhouse has a five point range, clubroom, toilet and limited catering facilities and there is ample parking on the site.
It caters for .22 calibre small bore rifle shooting (prone) and .177 calibre air pistol and air rifle shooting (standing). The club is open on Monday and Friday evenings from 7.30pm to 10.30pm. The first part of the evening is devoted to .22 rifle followed by air pistol and rifle.
On most Wednesday evenings the club is open exclusively for air pistol and rifle shooting and on most Thursday afternoons and evenings it is open exclusively for .22 rifle competition shooting. Further details are available at the club.
Shooting is generally conducted to National Small-bore Rifle Association rules. Competitive shooting at all levels is available and encouraged, however those members wishing to shoot non-competitively for recreation are equally welcome.
Newcomers to the sport may use club equipment free of charge (under supervision). They may purchase ammunition for use strictly on the range after acceptance of their probationary membership application and payment of the appropriate fee. FAC holders may purchase ammunition from the club in the usual way.
There is no minimum age limit and Junior members are welcome but they must be accompanied by a responsible adult for all visits. Those under the age of twelve are unlikely to be capable of supporting a rifle adequately for serious shooting. Instruction for all disciplines is available from experienced coaches for both novice and experienced shooters.
Application for membership is open to all by completion of the appropriate form which is available at the club. Full membership is usually conditional upon satisfactory completion of a probationary period. Juniors must have their application forms countersigned by a parent or guardian and we prefer parents or guardians to accompany juniors to the club for at least the first few visits.
