Shooting

This is one of the favourite activities within the ATC. We’ll teach you to handle a variety of weapons safely. Firing is always done in the prone position (lying on your stomach) at static targets. Progress through the course and you'll experience different types of weapons and could even take part in shooting competitions if you really prove your skills.

Ranges come in different shapes and sizes but all are in controlled conditions with full training on any weapon that you handle - safety is our top priority. To start with you will learn to shoot on a 25m indoor range. As your skills improve you will get the opportunity to train on different weapons at outdoor ranges and over longer distances. Do well and you may qualify for a Marksman badge at Squadron level or above.
 

Due to the lack of qualified staff, shooting for cadets of 1146 Sqn has been severely curtailed recently, but we hope to resume training again on-site shortly. Check the Programme and Calendar pages for details of the next shooting events.
