    looks like a fun day , ... I haven't been to the range before , how is the access and terrain for one legged (with prosthetic) shooters?

    Actually the more I think on this, you may have difficulty with the very short (1m) slope from the carpark to the mound/benches. But you could overcome this by walking around the firing mound and approaching from the front during a closed range period.

    Access from carpark to benches now has a ramp on the LHS and steps on the RHS so should be a piece of piss

    One of the best shooters is similar with a damaged leg. For some of the rounds where you have to run forward someone carries the gun forward for him while he uses his crutch. He's usually in the top scores which I find amazing considering.

    Service rifle has 'service rifle' which is A1/A2 irons only I think and then open. This one doesnt say but frankly it is a lot of fun to do so just turn up and have a go.
