The Northern Ireland Target Sports Association is a progressive and dynamic target sports club. We welcome applications for membership from all law abiding citizens.
Our Ethos is non profit taking and all club property is held in a Trust Deed for the membership. The Trust Deed is held by Diamond Heron Solicitors, Royal Avenue, Belfast.
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. In December 2016 we demolished our existing three 25metre outdoor ranges and replaced them with four 25metre all-weather ranges which were completed in April 2017. Throughout the construction process the club remained open as members continued to shoot on our two 50metre outdoor ranges.
We are fully committed to our goal of constructing a 50metre, two 100metre and three 25metre indoor ranges on our six acre site on the Buskhill Road. When completed the NITSA Ranges will without doubt be one of the best range facilities in Europe.
Ranges 1, 2, 3 and 4 are 25metre all-weather and have LED lighting, ranges 5 and 6 are 50metre outdoor ranges, the eleven firing points at 50metres are covered. There are a total of 35 firing points at 25metres and 11 at 50metres.
Our club house boasts a state of the art air conditioned training room complete with overhead projector and whiteboard and can accommodate twelve candidates per course. The membership benefit from the expert training of in-house NRA (USA) qualified instructors and assessors. We provide Safety Courses, Range Officer, First Aid, Black Badge and Fire Warden Courses. Our courses are also available to members of any other club.

Each month we provide the following competitions; Police Pistol, Service Pistol, Bench Rifle, ISSF Standard Pistol, PPC Standard Semi-Auto, PPC 4inch Revolver, PPC 1500 Revolver & Pistol, PPC Distinguished Match, Gallery Rifle
