About Us.

The purpose of Precision sport shooting is to achieve the ultimate in accuracy.  We shoot different classes and with different rifles, and there is a place for everyone no matter what rifle you shoot with.


Here are some of the disciplines and targets we shoot:


Air Rifle

  • Light Varmint

This class has a weight restriction on the rifle on max 4.76 kg and not more than 12 ft-lb of energy. There is no limit on scope magnification. Distance to target is 25m.

The objective is to shoot 25 targets in 20 minutes. The inner target / circle diameter is 2mm.

Members can obtain Nationals colours (Protea colours) in the class

  • Heavy Varmint

Very similar to the Light varmint class except that the weight of the rifle is maximum 6.8 kg and maximum 20 ft-lb of energy.

There is no limit on scope magnification. Distance to target is 25m.

The objective is to shoot 25 targets in 20 minutes. The inner target / circle diameter is 2mm.

Members can obtain Nationals colours (Protea colours) in the class

Very similar to the Heavy Light varmint class,  the weight of the rifle is maximum 6.8 kg and maximum 30 ft-lb of energy.

There is no limit on scope magnification. Distance to target is 25m.

The objective is to shoot 25 targets in 20 minutes. The inner target / circle diameter is 2mm.

  • Grouping

An exciting addition to the competition. This a class to see how small you can shoot your groups at 50m. You have one target with 6 diagram of which one is a sighter target. You have 30 minutes as needed.PCP bench has progressed to a point where the shooters and equipment is so good that a single bull or X might determine the winner when both shot the same high score.
