Location and ranges available
Situated on a c.12 acre site adjacent to Lough Boora Parklands and on long term lease from Bord na Mona the Midland Rifle Club shooting grounds offers facilities second to none for all riflemen and women.
The range is geared for the Rimfire and Centre Fired Rifles and, in addition, has a full Sporting Clay Pigeon layout on site. There is a range available and suitable for classes of rifle commonly used throughout this country. This allows for the use of all calibres up to and including .270", within a 400 metre range, for recreational or competitive pursuits.
The ranges are as follows:
1. 50 metre targets (paper)
2. 100 metre targets (paper & falling plates)
3. Life size rabbits targets at (a) 50 metre and (b) 100 metres
4. Life size foxes targets at (a) 100 metre and (b) 150 metres
5. Life size fallow deer targets (a) 100 metre and (b) 300 metres
6. Silhouettes (25m, 50m, 75m & 100m)
As rifle shooting is an outdoor activity the Midland Rifle Club have a 30 metre long covered stand providing comfort for the shooters during inclement weather. The stand can accommodate all styles of shooting from free standing, seated, kneeling to prone. Shooters with disabilities are especially welcome as facilities are in place to cater for them.
Irrespective of your style the view down the silhouettes across the 400 metre range and beyond as far as your eye can see over the Finnamore Lake development is most impressive and refreshing. Membership of the club is open, young and old, experienced or beginners all are welcome.
