Our Club
Salisbury Vintage Rifle and Pistol Club is a Home Office approved target shooting club. We shoot at a 25 metre outdoor range at the far end of Old Sarum airfield and Bisley.
We cater for enthusiasts of black powder,  small bore and vintage military rifles and other shooting disciplines including air weapons.
History of the club
The club was formed in the early 1970’s to allow collectors of Antique Firearms  the opportunity to shoot them. The club is Home Office approved for all Muzzle  Loading Rifles and  Pistols, Small Bore Rifles, Full Bore Rifles and is affiliated to the N.R.A. The  membership  covers an area from Bristol in the west to Basingstoke in the east as  well as the  Southampton and Salisbury area.
Over the years the club has  expanded the types  of firearms used and we now include everything from air  pistol/rifle through to  gallery rifles as well as those aforementioned. We hold  regular competitions to include all the classes of weapons that we are permitted  to shoot under our license.
