Rifle and Handgun

Lake Windermere Rod and Gun

We are licensed as a “Shooting Club”, approved for the discharge of restricted firearms and prohibited handguns. The range is un-supervised;- users are responsible for their own safety and the safety of others. The range is open to both members and the public and all users are required to sign “in” and “out” in the register provided. Those using restricted firearms or prohibited handguns are required to provide their PAL#. Non-members are also required to purchase a day pass.

For rifle and handgun shooters, we have a covered firing line with approved backstops and targets at 25, 50, 100 and 200 meters. There are 8 bench rest positions with vibration-free, concrete slabs and adjustable seating designed in accordance with requirements for international bench rest competitions. For handguns, there are 5 firing positions. In order to avoid ricochets from mid-range ground strikes, targets are to be placed only on the backboards directly in front of the backstops.

Our handgun range is approved for static shooting with handgun cartridges contained in template groups up to .357 Magnum. Our rifle range is approved for static shooting with rifle cartridges contained in template groups up to .338 Lapua Magnum;- .50BMG is not allowed.

Safety is paramount. The Club has established and abides by recognized safety rules for all shooting disciplines. Those using the range facilities are required to conform to such regulations. The Club reserves the right to ask anyone acting in an unsafe manner to leave the premises.

The rifle range is closed periodically for work bees, rentals or during major clay target shooting events. Check Range Closures for a current list of closures.
