Gosford District Rifle Club is a long-range target shooting club. The club shoots at the Kariong Regional Shooting Complex, which is located off Woy Woy Road, Kariong.
The club shoots over ranges which start at 300 metres and extend to 600 metres. Many of our members also regularly shoot at Hornsby and Malabar ranges which both extend to 800 metres. To achieve accuracy at these ranges, our members use purpose-built precision target rifles. The main calibres used are .308 and .223.
‘Off the shelf’ sporting rifles are not suitable for our particular discipline.
Our club conducts a shoot on most Saturdays commencing at 1pm (the program can be found on our website). Members arrive around 12 Noon to prepare the range and set up equipment. With prior approval, prospective members may attend as visitors to observe the club shoot, but must arrive no later than 12:30pm because access gates are locked as part of our safety procedure.
