Practice Times & Competitions

Club members have the opportunity to shoot most Saturday afternoons in distances ranging from 300 out to 1000 yards with likeminded people in a friendly and relaxed environment. 

Members can also compete, if they wish, against other clubs in fixture events, prize meets, and both State and National Championships.

Shooting Disciplines

The club offers the shooting disciplines of Target Rifle Shooting and F Class.

Typically, these disciplines are shot with .308 or .223 calibre rifles as these rifles are specifically designed for the discipline.


We welcome both men and women 12 years and older to our club. Shooters / participants under 18 years will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. You do not have to be a student or former student of the University of Queensland to become a member.

Join us for a “Come and Try” morning by contacting the club. They are normally held on a Saturday morning and you do not require a license or firearms.
