SEECO Rifle and Pistol Club - Redditch

Shooting Team in REDDITCH, B98 7BS

Welcome to SEECO Rifle and Pistol Club - Redditch

  • Target shooting is one of the oldest competitive sports in the world. Rifle and Pistol shooting was included in the first modern Olympics and is a feature of these and the Commonwealth games today. British competitors returned from Delhi with 40 medals in 2010. For more on international competitions including video see http://www.issf-sports.org/tvplayer.aspx While fitness and long practice sessions are required for those competing at the highest levels, the sport can be and is enjoyed by all ages from school age to OAPs and even those with significant disabilities can partake in some form. Men and women are fairly evenly matched in most cases with the current British Champion being a young woman. It requires calmness, concentration and discipline. Often shooters are in club teams shooting against others in local and national postal leagues but the main opponent is yourself; striving to achieve better results.
  • Prone rifle shooting is the mainstay of British target shooting and we shoot small-bore (0.22inch) rifles at targets 25 yards away on our indoor range. During the summer we can shoot at 50 metres (the standard International distance) and at 100 yards on outdoor ranges within the county. It is also possible to shoot standing and kneeling with these rifles which is common in Europe.
  • Air Rifle and Pistol shooting at 10 metres, another Olympic discipline is also practiced. This is with specialised 0.177 rifles and pistols and can be a low cost way in to competitive shooting, which may also afford the possibility of practising at home if you can provide a safe backstop.
  • Lightweight Sporting Rifles (0.22) and Sporting Air Rifles (0.177 and 0.22) are used for competitions shot standing and unsupported at 20 yards. Telescope sights may be used. There are local leagues for this form of shooting and it is popular with those who simply shoot for personal enjoyment. There has recently been an interest in Bench-rest shooting, with both .22 Small bore and Air Rifles. This is an international discipline in itself but is especially suitable for the older or less physically fit person to continue to enjoy his or her sport.
  • Target shooting is a safe sport, and range safety is the first requirement of training. The club has sufficient equipment to get you started, and in any case you will want to try out the sport before you spend your money. Advice is available to guide you through the purchase of this as necessary.
  • You must notify the secretary and book an appointment to visit prior to coming to the club. The law does not allow us to offer any form of day membership, and also requires you to have attended regularly for a period before the police will consider granting you a firearms certificate.
