In the very early days, way back in 1960, a handful of shooting enthusiasts came together to jointly work towards the pursuit of their hobby. Initially, shooters would collect guns deposited at the local police station, and practice at CRA grounds, Bangalore. The competition guns or ammunition were outdated and scarce.
The shooters had to face many challenges in terms of leasing a proper area for a shooting range; procurement of competition guns; supply of ammunition, and many more. It was during the 4th National Games in 1997, that Late Shri. Nagaraj Rao Jagdale established the existing K.S.R.A. ranges at Karnataka State Rifle Association, which is part of the Sports Authority of India campus, on Mysore Road, Bangalore.
A full-fledged modern shooting complex comprising of 50 mtr Range, 25 mtr Pistol Range, 10 mts Indoor Air Gun range and Trap & Skeet range are available at the Sports Authority of India complex since May 1997.
During 2009-2011, these ranges were further renovated to match International standards with state of the art electronic target shooting equipment.
We are proud to highlight that the Karnataka State Rifle Association has produced many champions who have brought laurels to the country. K.S.R.A also imparts training in handling weapons, under the Civilian Rifle Training Course.
