Cawdor Rifle


Gun Club

 © CR&GC 2020

Welcome to CR&GC’s website.

We are a full-bore rifle club affiliated to the NRA (No. 174) and STS.  We operate under the approval of the Scottish Government (Ref. DDG 5/5 N1).

We shoot regularly at our range on Cawdor Estate at distances up to 600yds.

We shoot all year round, weather permitting.  Our range days cover all types of firearms and we have a selection of competitions - some more serious than others - to encourage participation at all levels.

23/7/20 Using the newly commissioned electronic scoring system and the ‘bubble’ model, we are looking to hold our first range day on 2 Aug.  All members should have received details by email.  Sadly we cannot deal with new members or probationers at this time.  Club firearms will not be available.

11/7/20 In the light of the most recent guidelines from the Scottish Government regarding Phase 3, it would appear that sporting clubs have to adhere to the 5 household maximum, despite having put any mitigations in place. We therefore feel that we cannot proceed with our planned restart of shooting at this time.  I apologise for getting people’s hopes up, but we are just going to have to be patient for the time being.

4/7/20 Due to the Scottish Government’s recent updates, we feel that we are in the position of being able to begin shooting again.  Members should already have had an email stating that we will start on the 12th with a 100m day and follow that on the 19th with a gallery/BP day.  Our Risk Assessment can be found here.  Our current programme is suspended and we will provide details of future days once we have assessed the outcomes of these two days.

Any future expansion to include longer distances will very much depend on any relaxation of the current conditions concerning social-distancing.  I hope that you can understand the club’s approach.

Information concerning the payment of fees will be communicated once we have a clearer idea of how the season may proceed.


18/3/20 Due to the current advice on social distancing, we have taken the decision to suspend our shooting programme until further notice.

The AGM will also be postponed until things get back on an even keel.

I will keep you informed if anything changes.

9/3/20 Just a reminder that we are back to normal times.  We commence shooting at 1000, so please arrive around 0900-0915 to get range set up.

For next Sunday we are planning 100/200 yds, with part of the range using Fig11s for the SP practice and normal targets available for everyone else.

Remainder of the dates for the year will go onto Dutyman by the end of this week.  

2020 Competition list and results are now available. Please see the link under the Programme Tab for the 2020 WoS Spring Entry Form.

2020 AGM is looking like Tues 14th April, but will confirm once I get the OK from the Community Centre.
