Light Weight Sporting Rifle

05 September 2019

Light Weight Sporting Rifle (LWSR) is a relatively modern discipline that sees the shooting taking place from an unsupported, standing stance. The rifles used are "sporting" and so typically are shorter in length and lighter than the bench rest and prone rifles. The rifles are scoped, many shooters use moderators and they can be semi-automatic or single shot. As the rifles are typical "hunting" rifles then there is a huge selection to suit your needs and budgets.

The club has around 12 individuals competing in LWSR currently, shooting in both local (Southampton) and county (Hampshire) competitions. There is also opportunity to shoot nationally for the county (if you score is good enough) - one of our members has done this.

We have a number of club guns so come and give LWSR a try!
