LSR is one of the most popular disciplines shot @ Chinnor. It uses a lightweight rifle of no more than 4.5kg in weight, with either semi-automatic or single shot bolt actions . Sights can be iron or telescopic, dependent on the competition to be shot. Specialist clothing or equipment such as jackets or slings are not permitted, but a glove can be used for the supporting hand if desired. In the case of Darren's competition shooting details are to be completed within a set time
