Welcome To Tidworth Rifle and Pistol Club

The Club holds regular Fullbore Target, ‘F’ Class shoots at Bisley National Shooting Centre. Smallbore, Gallery Rifle and Black Powder shoots, including benchrest, precision and speed which are held on a 25m Barrack Range at Old Sarum.
Members travel, once a month, to the National Shooting Centre at Bisley to practise and shoot competitions, at the longer distances.
The Club permits the use of any firearm held on a member’s certificate, providing local Range regulations are adhered to. Some competitions, however, restrict the eligibility of the scoring.
