Shooting in Northern Cyprus

TRNC Shooting Federation was first born in 1974 under the name of Hunting and Shooting Federation. In 1996 Hunting and Shooting was divided into two different federations, Hunting Federation and Shooting Federation, which is the Federation now standing. Due to the embargo against Northern Cyprus, we are not able to participate in any international competitions, which we have been struggling for many years. Despite all this, we are still continuing to stand on our own feet. Shooting in Northern Cyprus is done with the rules of ISSF and International norms with international, modern and high technology ranges. Gonyeli Shooting Range has Trap Range, Trap-Skeet Range, Compaq Sporting Range, Skeet Range and Magosa Shooting Range has Trap Range and Skeet Range.

Girne Gun Club in Northern Cyprus is a perfect option for the travelling shooter. It is situated, just a few miles west of the historic port of Girne. The club is already drawing many visitors from the U.K., attracted by the islandís wonderful spring and autumn weather. Construction began in 2000 and the club was officially opened in October 2001. At its heart is a steep valley winding its way up the hillside with panoramic views up to the Besparmak Mountains and out to sea. A path has been created along the valley and a large number of permanent shooting positions established. The steep slopes give the course designer endless scope to present challenging targets to suit all abilities and heavy investment in automatic traps is taking place to make the most of the potential. For shooters, the appeal will lie not just in the weather but also in the chance to adapt their skills to very different conditions. The rugged scenery is quite unlike anything to be found elsewhere and judging target trajectories can be tricky against the brilliant blue skies. With unlimited access to the sporting course, there is plenty of opportunity to practice! Shooters can also enjoy a round of skeet or compact sporting on the ranges conveniently situated next to the impressive log-built clubhouse. Here a bar and snack bar provide the much needed refreshments after a round out in the sunshine and there is the chance to relax and enjoy the cooling breezes on the club house veranda and watch others in action. Cartridges, including a selection of popular international brands are available at the ground. The formalities of taking a shotgun into Cyprus are straightforward. Mediterranean Leisure Activities Ltd. in conjunction with Hetim Tourism who is the main and local booking agents for the club, will arrange all the necessary customs documentation in advance and there should be few if any delays on arrival at the airport. One point to note however, semi automatic guns are not allowed on the island yet. Once there the club has a secure armoury where your gun can be stored for the duration of your stay.

It is not hard to see the appeal of Cyprus and the Girne Gun Club, excellent facilities and the fabulous weather would be enough. For the family man however there is also much for the non-shooting members to do and enjoy, all at prices that wonít break the bank. Girne Gun Club and its facilities are looking forward to welcome adventurous shooter.
