target picture       prone shooter

‘Prone’ uses a small-bore rifle, the shooter fires from the prone - or laying - position at a target 25 yards away with a specialised heavyweight target rifle, with precision aperture sights. Whilst 25 yards might not seem far, the target is very small and so the slightest twitch can result in a miss and a dropped point. Prone rifle is the backbone of rifle shooting in this country.

  • Rifle with sights, sling and hook. (The hook clips the sling to the rifle.)
  • Shooting jacket.
  • Shooting glove to take the weight of the rifle.
  • Shooting mat for comfort,
  • Hearing protection.
  • Spotting scope to see your scores.
