Part of The Copsewood Sports and Social Club

The GEC Rifle and Pistol Club was formed in 1939 and was part of the then GEC Sports and Social Club. This was later changed to Marconi Sports and Social Club and more recently to the Copsewood Sports and Social Club. The GEC Rifle and Pistol Club has been in existence for more than 70 years. It was formed for small-bore rifle shooting and over the years has grown to include air rifle and air pistol disciplines.

The club affiliates to the NSRA which is the governing body for smallbore and airweapons target shooting in the UK.
To view the NSRA site click the logo on the left.

The GEC range is situated to the rear of the Copsewood sports ground on Allard Way and can offer facilities for the following shooting disciplines
It is a requirement that all members represent the club by shooting competitively in the internal and external competitions entered by the Club.
We currently shoot in competitions in the Warwickshire , Worcestershire , NLRTSA and CNTSA leagues.
Most of our shooting is done postally (ie we shoot the cards on our home range and then send them to an appointed scorer who scores the cards and sends the results back).
Recently in some competitions, cards are scored by a certified club scorer, who sends the scores to the competition organiser, who collates the scores and sends the results back.
