Guns are dangerous, unpredictable things – but they can also be a little cool, can't they? Or maybe it just seems that way because they're so heavily restricted in Australia. Whatever the case, there is one place in Brisbane in which you can play with guns in a safe environment.
The Belmont Rifle Range (1485 Old Cleveland Road, Belmont) is a world class venue that is the head quarters for Queensland small bore and air rifle shooting clubs. Following a million dollar renovation, this location now has 60 ten metre bays indoors and 60 fifty metre bays outdoors.
The rifle range hosts a variety of shooting related activities, such as clay target shooting, smallbore, air and benchrest rifle shooting and archery. It is also the meeting spot for many shooting clubs around Brisbane. If you would like to join a shooting club, you can get their contact information from the Belmont Rifle Range website. Otherwise, contact the rifle range by phone or e-mail to find out when it is open to members of the public.
At Belmont Rifle Range, you can experience the cold steel grip of a gun in a safe and legal environment.
