Your 100m fullbore range in Norfolk
Scroll down the page for shooting times and a summary of range operations & rules .
Horsford Range is the home of the Smallburgh Rifle & Pistol Club. Having been a 500 yard range for many years the range certificate was lost due to new land owners removing our safety zone agreements with adjoining land in 1996.
After many years of hard work we now have a none safety zone 100m fullbore range with clay shooting options. Our Police approved guest day is on the Third Sunday morning of each month were you can find out more.
Leave Norwich on the Reepham Road then at the new roundabout turn right continue until you cross the new NDR continue until you see a roundabout turning left in to Horsford Village. When you will enter the village of Horsford follow the road through the village until you approach a cross road's at the end of the built-up area. Turn RIGHT at the off-set roundabout in to Green Lane and follow it for apx 100m (Do not turn in to the new housing estate on the right) when you will see a turning to the left. You may pass the red flag at this point only - continue to the parking area.
Please Note: The range is currently operating a limited pre-book shoot on the 3rd Sunday of each month

(Please note: During the current situation with Covit 19 some of the information below may not apply
SHOOTING TIMES AM 10am to 1 pm PM 2pm to 5pm or Dusk
PLEASE NOTE: If your club has the AM booking please make sure all your members have cleared the range by 13.30 hrs to allow the next club to shoot.
I am sure that you all appreciate that it takes time to set-up and clear the range, our shoots can only start after 10am, later subject to time to set-up, however, the range is normally open just after 9.30 am. If you want to shoot you must be on range and signed in by 11.30am after that we will close the range log. Members signed in before 11.30 may continue to shoot their 50 clays or other discipline before finishing.
This rule also applies to PM shoots – last sign in at 3.30pm
Our range certificate is very clear on what firing position you can adopt.
Rifles & Shot Gun using slug.
100/50 Meters: Kneeling/Setting on the firing point or at a table (Supported or Bench Rest to zero)
100/50 Metres: Prone
PLEASE NOTE: Pistols of all types are not allowed at the 50m & 100m firing points
10/25 Metres: Setting, Kneeling or Standing (PISTOL CALIBRE ONLY IN THE LOWER STOP BUTTS).
When the range is active shooters must only use the right hand path when changing targets not the range road which can be closed off with a chain.
PLEASE NOTE: Pistols (Inc long barreled classed as carbines) can only be used from 25m or 10m. The 50m Firing point has been added to the safety certificate and is ready for use with the same rules as 100m
To speed up shooting from 100yards we plan to allow two shooters per firing point BUT WITH ONLY ONE PERSON FIRING AT ANY ONE TIME. By using the approved club target frames which will hold two left & right targets giving four targets in total it is possible for a detail of 20 shooters to shoot before we need the time consuming target check and re-new.
NO GUESTS ARE CURRENTLY ALLOWED UNDER THE LOCKDOWN RULES
