The 2012 Air Rifle Intervarsities and Colours were held on Saturday, 3rd of March 2012, in Wilkinstown Target Shooting Club. The competition was held entirely on electronics with the new targets from Dublin University Rifle Club supplementing the WTSC Megalink targets.
The competition truly started on Friday evening in the UCD range with a special detail being run to accommodate UCD shooters who were unable to attend the main event. 6 details took place in total. 27 competitors took part overall while the totals were calculated based on 5 Juniors and 5 Seniors from each club. Those shooters whose scores were counted were predetermined by the Club Captains and the names exchanged before the start of the competition.
The competition is based on the ISSF 60 shot format and the average scores increased again this year with one shooter from each club exceeding the Olympic Minimum Qualifying Score. If the collegiate scores continue to improve at this rate Ireland may well have representatives in the shooting competitions at the Summer Universiade, World University Games in Kazan, Russia 2013.
