At A.I.R. you can always shoot at your leisure, but if you fancy something a little different we also have competitions that anyone can enter
if they want to, and be eligible to win prizes. There are no charges to enter either our weekly Sunday competitions or our ongoing annual Bull Run Leader Board Competition.
We have a fun, non-serious competition every Sunday around 3pm which anyone can enter. The themes and competition rules vary each week. Its free, great fun, and a great way to meet other shooters.
Our shooters also take part in the UKBR22 Postal Competition.
All of our competitions (except the UKBR22 Postal Competition) and their targets are original, designed by us, and are only available at A.I.R.
If you fancy something a little more serious we have the Bull Run Leader Board, which is a FREE ongoing annual leader board competition which runs from January to December.
