Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hey all,

    Am definitely looking at a career in the Fleet Air Arm now, meaning i want to shoot for the Navy too. If anyone here is in the RNRMRA i would like to know what types of shooting there are availible. I shoot 7.62 target rifle in CCF, various types of .22 target rifle and gallery rifle (military and civilian), 5.56 L98 Cadet GP (have used SA80) and the occasional clay pigeon.

    If anyone could enlighten me more about Navy shooting I would love to know.
    Thanks

  2. How much is there in the way of shooting competitions though? The army seem to have alot from regiment right up to the interservice levels. Is this the same in the Navy?

    Punch In Bisley

  4. Shooting in the RN is an opportunity thing. Unlike the Army the RN has to serve on ships!!So dependant on your availability it will be a deciding factor for your shooting activities.

    The Bisley inter services matches with service arms and possibly the inter command competitions. Suggest you join the NRA and work towards owning your own firearms ---especially for Target Rifle .
