Air Rife Shooting

This activity is not available to Beavers.

Our NSRA qualified instructors provide target shooting in the 'enclosed' barn at Pinsent. The range is 6–10m with up to 6 shooting positions.
We have a range of air rifles suitable for Cubs, Scouts, Explorers and adults.

For Cubs we need 1 to 1 adult to shooter ratio. For this we need section leaders / parents to assist our instructors to ensure the appropriate adult - young person ratios. When we don't have sufficient instructors and leaders we sadly need to reduce the number of shooting positions.

A warranted Leader from your group, with a First Aid qualification, must be present at all Activity sessions to be responsible for the pastoral care of participants.

After your booking with us has been confirmed - we will send you the Permission to Shoot form. We need to have separate completed Permission to Shoot form from the parents of every young person. We operate a strict policy of No form, No shooting.

We only allow 12 participants at a time within the range, it is important for leaders to organise a Background Activity to occupy those waiting to have a go. This is not something that the Pinsent Activity Team provide.

Please ensure everyone arrives by your session start time as we always finish on time.

There are up to 3 evening sessions per weekday. Starting with 1 at the beginning of April, increasing as the evenings get lighter.
