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.

Through a lot of hard work by the members, and support from the Office of Sport, the facilities on the range have improved significantly.
All our shooting mounds are now high quality, maintenance-free, all-weather artificial turf. We now have a modern solar system and
lithium battery bank which provides a reliable electricity supply to power the clubhouse, re-charge batteries, run our electric fridge and power the security
and surveillance system.

We also have seven HEXTA electronic targets which are part of the most advanced system available in the world today (an Australian owned and run company,
the targets are made here on the Central Coast at Somersby)
