Can a beginner participate in competitions?

Competitions are available for everyone. Leagues are organised on a division basis so you compete against others of a comparable standard.

The Club is affiliated to the LSSA, the L&P HGRA and the Borders Rifle Leagues. Competitions are organised on a team and individual basis.

Some are shoulder to shoulder matches where members of other clubs visit Currie to shoot against our teams and vice versa. At the start of each season, members are asked to indicate the competitions they wish to enter. Teams are arranged according to average so members shoot in a team with people of similar standard and against teams of equal ability.

The club also organises a number of internal competitions shot throughout the year eg Club Championship, Macrae handicap, Anderson Trophy.

Information about these internal competitions is on the notice board.  The .22 prone rifle is predominantly a winter sport, the busier times being from October to March. A few members compete during the summer months in the Perth postal leagues.

Air weapons shooting takes place throughout the year. Summer months are ideal for starting; the range is less busy and tuition is easier. The Club holds an open meeting where competitors attend from all over Scotland and North England. This takes places one weekend in November.

Shoulder to shoulder competitions usually take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays and only one range is normally in use; anyone who wishes to shoot air weapons on the other range can do so and this is usually a good opportunity to shoot in peace and quiet. A list of the nights when the club is open for shoulder to shoulder matches can be obtained from the (.22)
