Range Fullbore Target Shooting Rifle Clubs

The QRA and NQRA North Queensland Rifle Association) foster target rifle shooting and firearms training through their clubs. 

A variety of classes of rifle shooting are conducted under the Standard Shooting Rules (SSRs) of the National Rifle Association of Australia (NRAA) (available on our NRAA updates page).  These include fullbore, F Class Open, F Class Standard, F/TR, Match Rifle and some clubs have Field and Rimfire divisions.

QRA and NQRA clubs operate around the State.  Club Shooting is usually held on weekends with competitions at distances from 100 - 1000 yards.

Fullbore Target Rifle shooting involves prone position single shot precision shooting using bolt action centre fire rifles at 'round bull' targets at distances from 300 to 1000 yards.  Target shooting is a sport of skill and determination which is not gender or age specific.  Women and men compete without favour or discrimination for the same grades and prizes. It is suitable for young people (the minimum age in Qld is 11 years) as well as older and physically impaired people who can enjoy participation alongside each other. This Commonwealth Games sport allows participants to compete at local, state, national and international levels individually or as a team member.

 Shooting is open equally to men and women. Queensland law designates that a person using a rifle must be a minimum of 11 years of age; adults 18 years and over must meet certain criteria to be eligible for a Queensland licence.
