Firearms Licences

January 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 will not be able to be used so that we can ensure that shooters are able to social distance correctly.

**  For Saturday’s Shooters are required to book online   **

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

Online Booking is released on a monthly basis toward the end of each month

Saturday booking sessions have been reduced to 1hr – up to 3 x 1hr sessions can be booked per person.

Sundays (when open) return to 1/2 hr sessions no bookings required and as always .22LR Rimfire STD velocity or under.


  • 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.

  • If you book online it indicates that you accept the Committee’s terms and conditions. 

  • 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.
