Colchester Castle - centrepiece of the hometown of the
Colchester Rifle Club
...............................and of the
Royal British Legion Mersea Island Rifle Club
The club has a 15 yard prone small-bore range with the butts under the stage of the British Legion Hall. The range was upgraded a few years ago with the introduction of additional steel backplating and bullet catcher to improve safety and defence zones. The hall also fulfils all the other requirements of a village community, and many visitors are not even aware that a target shooting facility exists on the premises.... unless they come on a club night.
(No rifles or ammunition are kept on the premises)
Since 1997, the R.B.L.M.I.R.C. has been the home base for the organisation of the HARC Postal Miniature Winter Leagues for historic small-bore rifles. Late in 2007, responsibility for the Leagues was handed over to the joint care of the Brighton Rifle & Pistol Club and the Bristol Rifle & Pistol Club.
