    Default Air rifle shooting range in the East Rand

    Good day all.

    I recently got back into air rifles/pistols and got myself a couple of new guns.
    I stay in the east rand and would like to know if there are any pellet gun friendly or exclusive shooting ranges in the east rand area where I can go shoot on weekends?

    I currently take the rifles with me when I go to PTA to shoot my bow at Archers Edge, but their pellet gun area is very small and limited.

    Would appreciate any recommendations.

    Cheers

    Hi Charel
    I live in Boksburg as well and the only outdoor shooting range is Knights there on the way to Germiston past Witfield on Main Reef road. I would not go there along.
    I go to North Cliff and shoot at the air rifle range there. We have a 50 meter rage and a 42 metre range. Guys are friendly and very knowledgeable. No bows allowed.
    You can contact me for more details.
    What are you interested in shooting?

    Regards
    Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Thank you for the reply.
    I know of Knights shooting range and have been there before shooting real steal rifles but not Air rifles.

    I wouldn't mind to check out the North Cliff club, would be nice to have a decent place to shoot my rifles at.
    And don't stress, i will leave the bow at home.

    I'm not to worried about getting into competition shooting, I just like to shoot my air guns, targets or hunting.
    I have one springer and two CO2 rifles, not yet on the PCP train.

    Another question please.
    I see on most competition rules or info that PCP or springers are mentioned. Are co2 rifles not allowed or are they classified under PCP?
