Gosford District Rifle Club was founded at the Kariong Range site in 1947.
One of the founding members and first Captain was a local man, Jim Sweet, who became known nationally as one of the best Australian shooters in the 1950’s
Kariong Regional Shooting Complex is now home to three rifle clubs and two pistol clubs. Following is a brief overview of the three rifle clubs:
Central Coast Smallbore & Air Rifle Club
This club uses .22 rim-fire rifles and air rifles up to 50 metres.
Central Coast Muzzle Loading Hunting and Sport Shooting Club
This club uses a wide variety of centre-fire sporting and military rifles. They also have sections catering for shotgun and black powder rifles and pistols.
They shoot over ranges from 50 metres to 300 metres.
Our Club - Gosford District Rifle Club
Our club uses .308 and .223 purpose-built target rifles in two classes; Full bore Target Rifle (Central - Iron Sights) and ‘F’ Class (Scope)
We shoot over ranges from 300 metres to 600 metres.

NSDRA CHAMPION OF CHAMPIONS MATCH
Two of our Club Champions competed in the North Shore District C of C Match at Hornsby Range on 4 June 2022.
The competition was shot over four ranges, 300m, 500m, 700m & 800m in very windy conditions.
Adrian Hall emerged the winner in F Standard, making him the District Champion this year. He will now go on to compete in the State Championship.
Grant Roberts finished in second place in Target Rifle, only three points behind the winner, Dmitri Kazakov of Roseville RC.
As there were no other competitors in F Standard Junior, our Club Champion, Sandiswa Nzimande, automatically qualifies to shoot in the State Championship.
