    It is proposed to hold range days approximately every six weeks at so at a variety of shooting ranges around Melbourne and through country Victoria. ACTA, Field and Game and Vintagers are all catered for.

    In some instances, we will hire the range for the exclusive use of MCC shooters, whilst we will also join with other shooting clubs on their scheduled shooting days.

    We are particularly interested in the promotion of the sport to juniors, and coaching is available for novices as well as for the more experienced shooters. Amongst our members include past Olympians and Australian representative shooters across various principles.

    For information regarding membership or on any of the shooting clubs, please contact Xavier McLaurin, secretary via or 0409 171 415.
