WIMMERA Sports Shooting Council will host a come and try event at Horsham Rifle Range on Sunday.
The event will give people a chance to try a hand gun, a small bore rifle, a big bore rifle and a shotgun all in the one location.
Eight clubs – Central Wimmera Target Club, Horsham Pistol Club, Horsham Rifle Club, Horsham Smallbore Rifle Club, Horsham Sporting Shooters Club, Natimuk Field and Game, Natimuk Rifle Club and West Wimmera Sporting Shooters Club – make up the council and will be showcased at the event.
Council vice-president Dale Russell said the event was about promotion.
“There’s been about 12 months in preparation for this,” he said.
“We’ve had various meetings with the different shooting clubs and it all comes together on Sunday. Shooting is a popular sport in the Wimmera and we might even be able to pick up some new members.”
The event, open to anyone over the age of 12, will be between 11am and 4pm.
“Even people without a license can come down – it will be fully supervised,” Russell said.
