Those cadets who excel in shooting can look forward to moving onto county, national and even international full bore shooting, using the L81A2 Cadet Target Rifle 7.62mm. Shooting at ranges from 200m to 1000m, in all weather conditions, really allows cadets to find their limits.
As well as the important shooting aspect, cadets are also taught how to maintain and care for their rifles as well as using the Russian-designed SCATT computerised training system that records their every movement whilst practising. Used indoors it means that no matter what the weather is like, shooters can have individual coaching on every aspect of their skill range - breathing, positioning, snatching at the trigger and follow through are all precisely mapped and can be viewed in real time, allowing cadets to be coached efficiently and quickly.
Somersets' cadets consistently feature in the top places of almost all the shooting competitions and our cadets regularly compete abroad, in Jersey, Canada and South Africa
