Air Rifles

Air rifle sessions at Frylands Wood are run in our custom-built rifle range, just past the pond on Bunny Drive. We use 0.177 diablo shaped lead pellets and have 3 different types of air rifle available. Only guns with a 0.177 inch calibre & muzzle energy of 12 ft/lb or less are allowed on Scout Premises, including this Centre.

If a Frylands Wood Instructor is running your air rifle session, then we will ensure all participants are given time to develop their technical skills in shooting, before introducing games and challenges to apply these skills. We will ensure the session is run in as safe a manner as possible and ask you to support us in this by managing your participants behaviour throughout.

If you are running your own air rifle session, then please provide us with copies of your permit/ certificates in advance (as needed, see ‘Conditions of Use’), and also ensure you read, understand & sign the related ‘Conditions of Use’ before starting the session. It will then be your responsibility to ensure the session is run in as safe a manner as possible, including managing your participants behaviour throughout.

Minimum Age: 8+ Years (As of October 2023 we have changed the minimum from 5+ to 8+ years)
