The British Sporting Rifle Club was formed at NRA Bisley in 1962 with the main aim of saving the Running Deer range. GB has a long history of success in Running Deer shooting dating back to the Paris Olympics of 1924, but the Bisley range saw little use of Running Deer apart from the NRA Imperial meeting and was in danger of being taken over for small bore shooting. Part of the original range can be seen outside the NRA offices in the shape of the two metal deer.
Since then BSRC has developed the near derelict site in a series of phases, to produce what some of our foreign visitors consider the best Moving Target rifle shooting complex in the world. This has been achieved by managing the range as a private club; member’s subscriptions have provided the capital investment over the years of some £300K without any grant funding. A dedicated and enthusiastic membership also provides the expertise and workforce to build and maintain facilities and we have benefitted from a long lease from the NRA to allow this development.
