Acoustic shooting is an activity which has been offered by Manx Blind Welfare Society since 2014. It involves the use of adapted rifles fitted with special sights, which measure the level of light reflected from the target and convert it into sound. Participants wear headphones to hear the sound, which becomes more frequent the closer they are to the target.
A British Blind Sport-recognised activity, acoustic shooting is designed for the visually impaired, but our sessions are open to all.
The Society has been registered as a rifle club and sessions are managed by Shooting Coordinator Dave Wilson. To find out more email here
