Target shooting

In 1900 during the Second Boer War, the MCC established a rifle club, which quickly achieved national and international success.

It was firstly renamed the Shooting Section in 1973 to recognise the establishment of the Small-bore Rifle Club and the Pistol Club, and with the addition of the clay target shooting discipline in 2006, it is now known as the Target Shooting Section.

The Full-bore Rifle Club and Small-bore Rifle Club compete in the Victorian Rifle Association and the Target Rifle Victoria pennant competitions respectively, with members also entering individual and team state and national competitions at all age levels.

The Clay Target Club hosts members’ days at various ranges, in addition to entering teams in the Victorian Clay Target Association Zone Competition.
