Anybody can apply to join the Narromine - Dubbo Rifle Club. You don't have to be from either Narromine or Dubbo. Members are of all ages, from all walks of life, and of every ability from expert to beginner. You don't have to be particularly fit, nor strong, nor heavily-built - the rifle does the work. Shooting is one of the few individual and team sports where men and women compete together on equal terms.
Some of our members have been shooting with us for decades while others joined as teenagers a year ago. We have a wealth of experience available to shooters in need of advice - and that includes everyone from time to time.
Want to give shooting a try but don't have a licence
From 1 October, 2008, a person may possess and use firearms on an approved range without the authority of a licence or permit (or other exemption) when they wish to try out the sport of shooting or when they are participating in an approved firearms safety training course, provided that they:
