    Skeet Shooting Range in Rawalpindi

    Although many members may have already knew but just for the sake of information for others, Pak Army had opened up a Skeet Shooting range in Rawalpindi - Westridge, the range has been operational for last one year, though i never had the opportunity to visit it myself.

    Range is located inside the Sports complex next to Army Public School and College Westridge 3.

    Membership fee is 50,000rs for civilians and then 3,000/ month. And then 65/fire you dont bring your own stuff.......

    The best thing is it is open everyday and not many shooters......although Range master made no promise since he was being transfered but he said he could accomodate two people per membership fee......

    I dont own a shotgun nor i know how to play this game, but am really interested if we can gather up a group to hanga round and learn ....???

    I also suggested to rangemaster to push his seniors for setting up a postol range as they have plenty of ground to spare

    50K is a huge amount with 3K per month.This is very old range and I remember that we had a firing session during my NCC course back in 1995. Since skeet shooting is not so frequent activity so paying 3K regularly will not be feasible. A person living in Pindi may opt range in Wah if he is a rare shooter.

    In a recent (ISSF-Olympic qualifier) only one of our SKEET star(Usman Chand) represented Pakistan in New Delhi.
    unfortunately,he could not score better than (110/125) to get near to finals.

    It looks our shooters will again get a WILD CARD entry for Rio-2016 in August,whereas lot of shooting nations have
    earned (OLYMPIC QUOTAS) through their high scores.

    What is the package they offer? I had heard that that range is only open on Sunday and its preety busy....agree that 3k seems overkill,for a range that is empty most of the time......probably this is one of the reason its like this.....

    For a sportsman preparing for competition, westridge range is best option.
    For occasional shooters like most of us, POF Shaheen club is the best.
    For people with money no problem, Islamabad Gun club is best option.
