Club Ranges

East Oakley Village Hall aka EOVH

BARPC has access to an indoor target shooting range with 6 lanes for both pistol and rifles (Please note that the Disciplines shot at this range requires all rifles and pistols to be under 6ft/lb). EOVH is open to all fully paid up members who are welcome to attend on Tuesday evenings between 7pm and 9pm.

The EOVH shooters also take part in a number of different NSRA and ELEY postal competitions throughout the year. Which includes both club and individual events, with different leagues to suit the individual shooters ability.

Shooting at EOVH is over a distance of 10 meters (10.94 yards) using a 4.5 mm (0.177 in) caliber air pistol in a standing position. There are some restrictions on the pistol regarding its dimensions, weight and trigger pull weight. The pistol must be operated by one hand and from a standing, unsupported position. As BARPCs goal is to enable air rifle/pistol shooting to every one, some of our members enjoy the challenge from a seated position as well.

The target is a 17 by 17 cm (6.7 by 6.7 in) paper target and is traditionally made of light coloured cardboard upon which scoring lines and a black aiming mark consisting of the score zones 7 through 10 are printed. There is also an inner ten ring, with the amount of inner tens being used for tie-breaking.

For members wishing to have a go, the club has two loan pistols which are available for club members to use without having to go buy equipment. To reserve the use of one of these pistols, please contact the indoor secretary via the club forum. Members are expected to provide their own .177 pellets.
