St Marys Indoor Shooting Centre
Please see our COVID safe information requirements here.
Lockdown Update 26/10/2021 - WE ARE OPEN
No need to book for casual shooting for individuals with a firearms licence.
When we reopen, we will be subject to certain rules as directed under the Public Health Order:
- Members and Guests must provide personal contact details via the Service NSW QR Code
- Masks must be worn inside
- We will be operating under capacity restrictions - one person per 4sqm inside.
- Only fully vaccinated patrons over 16 will initially be able to enter our venues. Children under the eligible age for vaccination will be permitted but must be accompanied by a vaccinated guardian.
- Any eligible individuals who cannot show proof of vaccination will not be permitted under any circumstance to enter the shooting range.
Please remember as you prepare your return to our venue, that the measures above have been put into place by the NSW Government to assure all our safety and that staff are only doing their job as they try to follow these rules. Let's all treat each other with respect! Aggressive and rude behaviour towards our staff will not be tolerated.
The complete and detailed Public Health Orders can be viewed here:
We are aware that many members may have concerns about completing attendance requirements, but please be assured that The Firearms Registry is aware that due to the ongoing pandemic and evolving circumstances, some licence holders may find it difficult to comply with their participation requirements given stay-at-home orders, self-isolation, quarantine or even due to a reluctance to congregate.
Any club member - whether a sports target (pistol or longarm), hunting or collecting – needing to undertake participation activities do not have to do so while clubs and ranges are closed due to the health situation in NSW.
To support this:
- The Firearms Registry does not propose to revoke a licence on the basis that a licence holder cannot fulfil their participation requirements due to self-isolation, lockdown, quarantine, concerns about congregating due to COVID or club/range closure due to the health situation in NSW.
- Licence holders in this situation do not need to notify the Firearms Registry on this matter.
You can read more detail from NSW Firearms Registry on this matter here: https://www.police.nsw.gov.au/online_services/firearms/covid_19_firearms_registry_response?fbclid=IwAR1SNCXPJnBODo3DsvuSdeenKQ-PmpN-AuR3FDpSXUt27RHj2IT43qatd1Y

Positions are currently available for at SMISC. Please use the links below for role description, selection critera, and details on how to apply.
Volunteer Recruitment – Are you interested in being a volunteer?
One of the reasons why the SSAA and the Centre have been so successful over the years is due to the volunteer base we have.
Without volunteers we would not have the variety of matches, training and programs for the members to enjoy. Unfortunately, volunteers don’t grow on trees, so every year we do a recruitment volunteer drive to help lighten the load on our existing volunteers, many of whom have been with us for 15 years or more.
If you would be interested in giving back to the sport by becoming a volunteer for pistol or rifle competitions, or the junior development program, please see the link below for an expression of interest form.
As an indoor recreation facility to the public, we are open from 10AM to 10PM Monday to Saturday, and 10AM to 6PM on Sundays.
The range features electronically controlled target carriers that can be set at distances from 7m up to 50m, suitable for centrefire, rimfire and pistol shooting. To view the complete range rules, click here. The centre also offers firearm storage facilities for members along with a well stocked firearms dealership. The centre has a comfortable fully air-conditioned lounge area.
Pricing for range attendances is $28 for SSAA members and $38 for non-members. Discounted rates are available for SSAA penioner members, and junior shooters. Typically there is no time limit, but when a waiting list is in effect shooting time is restricted to one hour.
St Marys Indoor Shooting Centre also caters for people who want to try the sport of shooting. If you have never tried the safe, fun and unique range of shooting sports, why not book in for one of our Try Shooting Days? Under the guidance of one of our Try Shooting Instructors you will receive instruction in the safe use of firearms while learning more about the shooting sports.
Come along and Try Shooting.
The Range is also home to the St Marys Pistol Club who hold regular competition shoots including Single Action, ISSF matches and Service Pistol almost every night of the week. For more information about St Marys Pistol Club, click here.
Here are some points to consider when planning your return visit to SMISC:
- Shooting Bays cannot be shared and only one person can be in each bay at one time regardless of being in the same household. There are exceptions for minors and disabled persons, but masks must be worn. This is due to the ventilation & air flow on the ranges. Please contact the range for further information.
- Please check the Events Page and Pistol Club - Information for Members pages for updates on scheduling of events. No bookings are required for casual pistol shooting.
- Extensive social distancing measures have been taken to keep our customers and staff safe, please pay close attention to the new signage/floor markings when entering SMISC.
- All patrons are expected to comply with the centre's COVID Safety plan.
- Enclosed footwear, hearing protection and eye protection must be worn.
- Any licenced pistol shooter must provide current club membership of their club to be able to shoot at St Marys Indoor Shooting Centre.
All licences, registration papers and permits that are presented to the St Marys Indoor Shooting Centre front counter must be original documents only.
We appreciate that everyone is keen to return to shooting,
but please be patient as we work through the NSW Government
