The rimfire section of the club currently supports a number of disciplines, Carbine, Prone, and Benchrest
With floodlit facilities allowing shooting 20, 25 and 50 yards plus 50 metres both during the day and at night Aireborough is one of the best training grounds in the country.
Due to the large number of members who wish to use the facilities, the range is in use seven days per week with set days for each discipline.
The majority of range members use .22 ammunition for competitions although we also have a large part of the membership that have access to land in order to hunt or deliver pest control duties, to complete pest control .17 ammunition is often used. Due to the increased power delivered by these rounds, their use is not permitted on bays A&B in the club house due to the damage caused to the sacrificial steel plates, they are also excluded from many competitions.
