Continuing excellence in Air gun shooting:   
Hampshire Scouts regularly excel at the National Scout Air Rifle Championships and the Scout Inter-County airgun competition and contribute many members to the National Scout Rifle Squad, the Great Britain Junior Rifle and Junior Pistol  Squads.   Some members have gone on to shoot at as senior Internationals for Great Britain, England, Scotland and Wales in major events including the European and World Championships and in the Commonwealth Games. 

Competitive "Sporter" air rifle shooting, using essentially unmodified low cost, entry-level air rifles of conventional appearance, offers the ideal way for young people to progress in the sport. It is now possible for under-21s  to compete at International level under this code. Find out more about "Sporter Air Rifle". .

The club also organises the National Scout Rifle Championships at Bisley.   

Take part in a Postal Shooting Competition for Scouts organised by the 1st Liphook Scout Group Rifle Club.  (Info available in .pdf Format)
