Chennai SDAT rifle Club Veerapuram

Postby yoge_007 » Tue Apr 08, 2014 7:32 am

Hello everyone.. I was searching all over this forum for a Rifle range in Chennai except the Madras Rifle club and i couldn't find one. Now that i have found one, let me pen down its details so that few like me would be benefited.

Bit of a background.. I was hunting for a good rifle club for the last few years and the only one everyone referred was the madras rifle club. When i approached them for 2 years they sid the membership is closed for now... when after enquiring i came to know membership was available for those who can afford few bundles of papers... But then in Jan 2014 i was surprised that Google responded to my request and said that there is a range in veerapuram [9kms from Avadi] and more welcoming was the phone number of the incharge person.

I called the number immediately and a warm friendly person named senthil responded.. He was patient enough to answer all my queries and asked me to join the weekend camp in Feb 2014.. I was more than happy.. when i went for the came, i was briefed about safety and the weapon itself and then had a crash course on how to handle the weapon and then i was handed over the weapon.. Wow what a feeling it was..

After the camp i enquired about the memebership, i was gladly accepted as a member by a very nominal fee... ever since then i haven't missed a single weekend....

The Shooting Range is located at Tamilnadu Special Police III Battalion, Veerapuram which is about 6 km from Avadi. The Range has facility for 10 M air-conditioned indoor range, 25 m and 50 m outdoor ranges for air rifle shooting with electronic scoring.

Although the air-conditioned indoor range is under renovation, there is a 50 Lane 10m Facility... Range is closed on monday's alone and we are coached by a National shooter Mr.Senthil a very humble, dedicated and a straight forward person.

Let the pic do the talking.
