Hemswell’s old 25m RAF practice range was converted for civilian use. The club is licensed to shoot Smallbore and Fullbore including .30 calibre rifles, Airguns and Black powder. The range is accessible to its members seven days a week between the hours of 8am to 9pm on the condition that at least two full members are present at the club before shooting can commence for safety purposes.
Competitions are run in house including black powder days and fullbore days, however the majority of competitions are run by external bodies that Hemswell Shooting Club has an affiliation to, these competitions include Smallbore, Fullbore and Black powder and cover all the disciplines that the club provides for. Affiliated bodies include NSRA and LSRA with other bodies and clubs being NRA, phoenix postal league and Scunthorpe and District Airgun Club.
Hemswell Shooting Club members have won many trophies in competitions across all disciplines and members have taken part in county and intercounty shoots that take place across the country also winning trophies and achieving good results at a country wide level.
Members can just shoot for pleasure and are not forced to take part in anything that they do not wish to participate in but if it does interest you many disciplines are practiced including free standing (light weight sport rifle), prone and bench rest.
