Target shooting

Shooting (FS120004)

The Rules of the Scout Association with regard to shooting with Firearms are set out in the Association‘s  Policy,  Organisation  and  Rules.

Anyone proposing to arrange shooting as a Scout activity must be familiar with these Rules and with the relevant Law.

The purpose of these pages is to help Leaders arrange target shooting activities and to facilitate discussion of the issues associated with target shooting. Examples of related activities not involving firearms and suitable for a wider age range are also included.
