Gallery target rifle shooting

Chepstow Rifle Club has a strong and active gallery rifle section. Gallery rifle is shot with sporting .22 RF rifles. The most popular rifles being semi-autos, or self-loading, e.g. the Ruger 10/22, although bolt action rifles and lever action rifles such as the Marlin 39a are used. Targets are shot at from the standing position at 20yds or 25yds against the clock.

Compared to most other .22 disciplines, gallery rifle is a low cost sport. New members can, after going through the necessary paper work, start shooting under instruction with club rifles. After a probationary period of 6 months full members can purchase a rifle of their own.

Gallery Rifle is held on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 19:00 to 21:00.
