ABOUT THE UK SPORTING AIR RIFLE CHALLENGE
The recent growth in many forms of airgun shooting has been great for the sport, but many competitors feel they have to have the latest and greatest equipment to compete at a high level. With more and more people using target rifles in outdoor competitions, new shooters might imagine they don’t stand a chance without investing many thousands of pounds in equipment. The UK Sporting Air Rifle Challenge is here to dispel that idea!
Our competitions are designed to appeal directly to those many people who own, use and love their sporting guns. So if your gun is a sporting rifle, without all the bells and whistles seen on competition guns, then you’ll be able to join in our main championship. We’ll have an open class, plus classes for juniors, 0.22 and recoiling rifles. We even have people shooting 0.25″ guns! Target rifles may be used, but they will be classed separately to the main competition.
For the 2013 season, there will be six events in the UK Sporting Air Rifle Challenge. We’ve taken on board the experiences of 2012, and are aiming for a great series this year.
