About us

The Northern Ireland Target Sports is a progressive and dynamic target sports club. We welcome applications for membership from all law-abiding citizens.

The range premises were purchased on behalf of the membership in 2009, and in 2010 we completed the construction of 5 full-bore outdoor pistol ranges. In December 2016, we demolished our existing 25-metre outdoor ranges and replaced them with four 25-metre all-weather ranges, completed in April 2017. Throughout the construction process, the club remained open as members continued to shoot on our two 50-metre outdoor ranges.

We are fully committed to our goal of constructing a 50-metre, two 100metre and three 25-metre indoor ranges on our six-acre site on the Bushkill Road. When completed, the NITSA Ranges will, without a doubt, be one of the best range facilities in Europe.

Ranges 1, 2, 3 and 4 are 25 metres all-weather and have LED lighting; ranges 5 and 6 are 50 metres outdoor ranges, and the eleven firing points at 50 metres are covered. There are a total of 35 firing points at 25 metres and 11 at 50 metres.

Our clubhouse boasts a state-of-the-art air-conditioned training room complete with an 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 officers, First Aid, Black Badge and Fire Warden Courses. Our courses are also available to members of any other club.
