The premiere Regional Competition is the West Indies Full Bore Championships, which is held each year, alternately, in Barbados, Guyana, Jamaica and Trinidad, usually in September/October of each year. Teams from Canada and the UK have attended these shoots in the past with a UK team usually taking part every 4 years or so. Bermuda hopes to host this competition in Canada in 2001/2. Some members also participate at Bisley.
Small bore Pistol & Rifle shooting is consistent with UIT Rules. A new addition to range facilities is an indoor air weapon range. Calibres used are .22LR, .32, .38 and .177.
