THE RANGE - WELLINGTON ROAD CHICHESTER

Our purpose built, 8 lane indoor range was completed in 2006 and supports a number of indoor shooting disciplines.

The majority of our shoots are at 25 yards, but the range can also be used for 20 yard and 10 metre classes.

NSRA Rules

The Club operates according to NSRA competition rules.  The latest full version can be downloaded from the NSRA website here.

RCOs

Whenever small-bore shooting takes place on the club’s Wellington Road range a Range Conducting Officer (RCO) has to be present to oversee and supervise the shooting.

All RCOs have received training in accordance with the NSRA Range Conducting Officer Course and are registered with the NSRA as RCOs.

The club has in excess of twenty RCOs who are on a rota and scheduled to be in attendance on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. It is the responsibility of any shooters who use the range outside of these hours to ensure that an RCO is present.

Instructors

The Club has a number of NSRA qualified small-bore instructors. One or more will be in attendance on Saturday mornings for training to assist probationary members.

Range Specifications

The Club Byelaws limit the specification of firearms that can be used during Chichester RPC Sessions to a maximum of 0.22” subsonic.  This is chosen to match the requirements of the NSRA competition rules.

However, the range specification exceeds that limit and firearms with larger calibres than 0.22” LR can be used by other clubs hiring the range by arrangement.

Ammunition

All our rifles use 0.22” LR rimfire ammunition.  We stock various types of  Eley and RWS, all of which can be purchased at the Club.  (Ammunition can only be removed from the range if you have a firearms certificate stating the appropriate conditions.)

Range Hire

The range can be hired by other approved shooting Clubs or Rifle Associations on an hourly or daily basis.  CRPC is proud to have hosted the Sussex County SBRA and Worthing and West Sussex SBRA Championship finals in the past.
