The Northern Ireland Target Sports Association is a progressive and dynamic target sports club. We welcome applications for membership from all decent law abiding citizens, as we firmly believe in sport for all.

The range premises were purchased on behalf of the membership in 2009 and during 2010 we completed the construction of 5 full-bore outdoor pistol ranges. It is our intention to construct a number of 25metre, 50metre and 100metre indoor ranges over the next few years at Buskhill. The new 2,000 sq ft Club House has now been completed and now boasts a state of the art training room and also The Reload Shop located on the ground floor and on the 1st floor we will very soon be opening “Nevins Diner” serving breakfast, lunch and tea’s.

Our Ethos is non profit making and all club property is held in a Trust Deed for all of our members, the Trust Deed is held by Diamond Heron Solicitors in Belfast.

Our membership benefit from theexpert training of no less than five in-house NRA (USA) qualified instructors and assessors. Many of our members are also Precision Pistol Competition shooters.

Ranges 1, 2 and 3 are 25metres and ranges 4 and 5 are both 50metres. There are a total of 31 covered Firing Points.

No matter what your sporting discipline, be it competitive or casual shooting, our five ranges will accommodate your requirements. Bring along your own licensed firearms, or ask about trying out some of the Associations. We supply most common types of centre fire pistol ammunition, such as 9mm, .38 Special, .40 and .45 ACP.

Feel free to contact us for further information on our plans and how to become a member.
