Bangor Tunnel Range

2012 COMPETITION IS NOW FULL - If anyone wants to go on a waiting list please email

Held in the Tunnel Ranges at Bangor. Hosted by the Bangor Rifle Club. This range consists of two tunnels alongside each other. Both are now 100 yards, the old ‘long tunnel is now closed due to legal technicalities. Both ranges are used at the same time allowing the organisers to simultaneously shoot two stages.

Although the competition takes place over the whole weekend all the stages are shot on each day. This allows competitors to select when to shoot. These shoots, given the problems of shooting in a tunnel, are different from your average Practical Rifle shoot. The team led by JN & PW put on shoots that are both novel and challenging. The competitor is usually put into five scenarios (courses of fire) taken from a period of history.

The Bangor competition has been re-thought for 2012 and this year there will be no CoF issued to competitors, only the number of rounds and equipment required to complete all the practices. There will be two scenarios, one in each tunnel each taking 50-80 rounds to complete. Then each tunnel with have 2 stand alone practices (10 - 20 rounds) to test the competitors mental and physical ability. Therefore a minimum of 180 rounds will be required for the 2012 course of fire.

It is unlikely that Iron Sighted rifles can compete on an equal footing and I would suggest anyone desperate to use one to contact me. There will be a separate category for 9mm carbines, although last year they gave no overall advantage.

Entry will be on a first come first served basis. If you would like to take part please download the entry form below and return it as soon as possible BY EMAIL to

Please note that the maximum distance shot is now 100 yards. The competition is open only to centre fire rifles.

It would be much appreciated that no one puts any info, the CoF or any photo’s of the competition on the web without the Bangor Hon Sec approving.
