After reviewing the situation with Covid and the present moves generally to relax restrictions, it has been decided to go ahead with the Easter Shoot this year.
It will, however, be pared back and for everyone visiting the Isle of Man there will remain a need to conform with any remaining Government conditions. The current conditions can be found at: https://covid19.gov.im/travel/travel-
Please ensure you check this website before making arrangements to travel or take part, and let us know if you have any further questions with which we can help.
Whereas in the past all Rifle, Pistol and Airgun events have been integrated into one overall Easter Festival, for 2022 each discipline will look after its own entry and other arrangements. The main site (this site) is focused on 50m Rifle and links are provided in the respective sections for Cartridge Pistol and Air Rifle/Pistol.
The Easter Shoot
A brilliant weekend's shooting and a chance for that perfect Easter break for the whole family in the beautiful Isle of Man. Everything you need is on these pages.
The 50m Rifle events take place on the fabulous Sinclair Range, fully equipped with Sius electronic targets and delivering probably the best shooting experience in the country. Come on over and try it for yourself, and don't forget the family. Easter can be a superb time to explore the Isle of Man. All the links you need to turn the trip into a wonderful family holiday are on the Travel & Accommodation page.

Important: Temporary Visitors' Firearms Permits
The Isle of Man is not part of the United Kingdom. It is a separate jurisdiction with its own legal system. Airguns are regulated as well as cartridge rifles and pistols. Manx firearms law still permits the holding of cartridge pistols. Visitors to the Island require temporary permits for all guns and cartridge ammunition, including air rifles and air pistols. Click on Permits in the main menu for details.
