Shooting in Sutton
Target shooting is an extensive sport, which can’t be fully described here. You can shoot with rifles, pistols, shotguns, or crossbows. Ammunition can be centre-fire, rimfire, muzzle-loaded, pellets, or crossbow bolts. There are competitions at most levels for all types of equipment. It’s enjoyed by the young and not-so-young, both sexes, regardless of ability or disability.
The International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) organises the international sport with worldwide participation up to World and Olympic level. Competitive shooting takes place with rifles, pistols, and shotguns. At our club, we shoot smallbore (0.22in or less) rifles and pistols using rimfire cartridges or airgun pellets.
In the UK, the National Smallbore Rifle Association (NSRA) governs those events. The many types of shooting events are often referred to as ‘disciplines’, because of the strict safety and competition rules.
Shooting is a very safe sport because we have a set of rules, which we follow and enforce. SCRAP Club shooting rules
