Target Rifle

Target Rifle (TR) is the traditional prone (lying down) shooting position with no rest, usually with a sling attached to a shooting jacket to assist with holding and aiming through the iron aperture sights.

The grades within TR shooting are:

  • Tyro - first year shooters who are permitted the assistance of a wind coach to help with judging the strength of wind
  • C grade
  • B grade
  • A grade

The allocation of grades is determined by a ranking system set by the National Rifle Association of New Zealand (NRANZ).
