Aberdeen Universities Rifle Clubs

Welcome to the Facebook page for the Aberdeen Universities Rifle Club!


We are a fun and competitive small bore target shooting club that train twice a week at the Denwood rifle range in Aberdeen. Our training times Are 1pm - 5:30pm Wednesdays and Saturdays through out the university year. In order to get to the range we meet at the Butchart centre for Aberdeen university students or outside RGU Sport for Robert Gordon's students.

Our fresher try out shoots will be held on the 2nd and 5th of October. At these shoots you will be given 20 rounds for free and shown how to use them in an effective, safe and fun manner. We are also planning a BBQ should the weather permit and if not there will be pies available inside.

On the social side of the club, we have our first big freshers night out on the 2nd of october after the first freshers shoot. More details to follow... Throughout the year we have weekly pub trips after our range days on Wednesdays and a big night out at least once a month, again, more details to follow... On top of these we also have the opportunity to enjoy nights out all around Scotland with the other Scottish University's rifle clubs when we visit them for competitions.

The competitive side of the club is where our name is made. We have held the BUCS and SSS trophies more times since their creation than any other club, with your help we would like to win them back! We compete all around Scotland and twice a year travel down into Englandshire to beat the best of the UK!
