Welcome to

Queensland Military Rifle Club Inc.

The Queensland Military Rifle Club Inc. was formed in 1984 to cater for military rifle shooters who wanted more variety and activity in target shooting. It recognises the fact that military rifle owners have legitimate sporting interests and provides an excellent opportunity to improve shooting skills and compete effectively without being restricted by the constraints of other shooting disciplines.

The Club shoots almost every weekend, generally alternating Saturdays and Sundays, and visitors are always welcome. Firearms used in major Club competitions in keeping with the spirit and original conception of the Club must be military type (not sporting rifles or sporterized military rifles), although a number of days during the year have been allocated to competition with modified and sporting rifles including rim fire rifles. All firearms and ammunition may be inspected by our Safety Officers to ensure they are safe to use.

We also have several trophy shoots throughout the year, for the more serious competitors, as well as occasional social shoots in conjunction with other clubs. The Club also runs a State Service Rifle Championship open to all Service Rifle shooters both National and International. We also hold the National Championships every other year.

If you have any further inquiries, please don't hesitate to see us at the range at Belmont Shooting Complex on Old Cleveland Road, Belmont [UBD Map 182 Ref. K8 ]. Through the main gate turn left past the front of the club house and follow the signs to Q.M.R.C. Range (go to the Range Location Menu), or you can write to the Secretary at the above address.

Do you own a Military Rifle and wish to use it as it was designed to be used ?.

Do you wish to be involved in competitions that offer an exciting variety of shooting using techniques and skills not practised at any other Club ?.

If so, then the QUEENSLAND MILITARY RIFLE CLUB could be just what you are looking for..

A Membership Application and current fee schedule is available on request.
