SSAA Sydney now has the use of the Anzac Range Saturday and on the third Sunday of each month. A Calendar of events and distances is posted on our website - see Calendar link under "Alerts". We are not allowing Try Shooting at Anzac until we build up our volunteer numbers. When you arrive at the Anzac Range, tell the person on the boom gate that you are shooting with SSAA and proceed to the SSAA clubhouse, which is in the middle of the first building on your left as you drive in. You will have to shoot in order to register an attendance. Club .22 and .223 rifles will be available, and ammunition can be purchased from the NSWRA shop (open Saturday mornings), which sells a wide range of ammunition and shooting gear.

Shooting is from the prone position. Rimfire rifles and centrefire rifles up to 8mm (but no magnums) can be used. Shooters who are unable to shoot prone for medical reasons may use a portable bench, but we have only three of these so if you can, bring your own. Bring your own shooting or other mat to lie on. Ear and eye protection is mandatory, as are enclosed shoes.
