Firearms Licences

March 2021 

The J & W Bruce Rifle Range (SSAA) at East Seaham is open for general shooting

Given the COVID-19 pandemic restrictions, almost half of the shooting positions are unable to be used to ensure social distancing. Due to the high demand for a position on the firing line, the range is currently open to SSAA Newcastle members only to shoot.

**  For Saturday’s, an online booking is required to guarantee a bench or field position  **

**  Pre-booking for Sunday’s (when open) is no longer required  **

Sundays (when open) return to 1/2 hr sessions and as always .22LR Rimfire STD velocity or under

Club competitions are now running dependent on availability of volunteer Range Officers

The opening of the range is contingent upon having adequate range staff to operate safely and that we are able to operate within the NSW Government Health guidelines and with their approval.

There will be copies of our COVID 19 Safety Plan available for perusal at the range

Please note there will be a zero tolerance for any breaches of these rules.

Please contact the Club President – Greg Cumming on ph. 0439 254 496 if you have any questions, concerns or issues.
