Three Position Rifle Shooting

Precision shooting is carried out either lying down in the “prone” position or in “3 position” - in the prone, kneeling and standing positions. Precision shooters use very accurate rifles and ammunition, supported by slings and other aids which enable great precision to be achieved. The calibre used is exclusively .22. At Marlow we shoot this discipline at 25 yards. Trying to hit a ¼ inch bullseye standing up is a real test of skill! An expert might on average expect to hit it 8 or 9 times out of 10.

Almost all Precision rifle shooters participate in competitions, and there is a wide range of these catering for all skill levels from beginner to Olympic class. Marlow Rifle and Pistol Club enjoys regular success in competitions and is well known and respected.
