Shooting within the air cadets is highly competitive. There are many levels at which you can compete and also many rifles that you can have the chance of shooting, such as:

The Air Rifle

The No.8 Rifle




Shooting takes part at a local range where you can master your marksmanship skills before taking part at competitions. If you succeed, you could see yourself competing on a national level within the Corps.

You must pass specific Weapon Handling Tests (WHT’s) before being allowed to fire on a live range. Once attained, and within the validity period, you are free to shoot this weapon on a range under the supervision of qualified instructors. This can also be undertaken on camps within the Corps.
