Air Rifle Benchrest Shooting

Air rifle benchrest is a unique precision shooting competition between sanctioned clubs throughout the United States. North Berwick Rod & Gun Club holds both indoor and outdoor sanctioned shoots monthly.

Monthly shoots are regulated by the United States Air Rifle Benchrest (USARB). Match rules, air rifle specifications, targets and scoring are controlled by USARB to insure fair competition. A match consists of 25 targets, one shot per target, with a time limit of 20 minutes. National ranked results from all sanctioned shooters are posted on USARB website scoreline. How do shooters at our matches compare? We have a three-time world benchrest champion, two-time USARB springer champion and a national field target champion.

Sanctioned shoots are for serious competitive shooters.

If you would like to try USARB competitions, please visit a Monday practice (4 to 5:30) weekly. You can try shooting high performance air rifles and get an understanding of what is required.

High performance air rifles are not what you shot in the backyard as a youth. We guarantee, you will be impressed!
