Tuesday 28 August 2018 – Club Shoot at Bisley
The second weekday club shoot at Bisley was fantastic and was great to see two younger members stretching their skills through the day. It was even commented on by another group of shooters at 1000 yards that it was great to see young people being encouraged and coached so well and supportively by the rest of the group.
Highlights this time were numerous, but particularly seeing the club Carl Gustav being put through its paces by Steve at 600 and 1000 yards. It really is a lovely rifle, and with a bit of additional coaching on the iron sights by Mark, Steve was on target straight away and hitting V Bulls as well.
Not bad for a rifle made 115 years ago, and not bad for a much younger Steve.
The young guns, Harry and Jake, performed admirably again even though it was Harry's first time at more than 50 yards. V Bulls were plentiful for both, and although there were some ammunition limitations at 1000 yards, both stuck to it like professionals and had a great day in the process.
One added bonus unexpectedly came our way, and take note here members - Bisley is apparently quite quiet on Tuesdays so we got a discount - £12 for a full day's shooting at the home of the NRA is all it cost us each - what a bargain !!
Wednesday 26 September 2018 - Third Weekday Shoot at Bisley
We are planning the third weekday shoot at Bisley following two really successful shoots in August.
The plan is to shoot at 600 yards in the morning, followed by the Bisley Buffalo and/or 1000 yards in the afternoon depending on whether we can secure the Buffalo steel target.
We are taking nominations now for this shoot, so if you’d like to come along, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. For this shoot, to encourage new shooters, we’re again opening two spaces for members who don’t yet hold a Safe Shooter Card. You will be supervised on a one to one basis, and will get all the coaching you need for the distances.
The cost of the shoot depends entirely on numbers involved, but should be in the region of £20 per shooter for the whole day.
If you’re interested, please email by Sunday 16 September to allow time to book additional lanes if necessary.
