Hello , new to the forum so a little about myself .
Have been shooting for years , had a shotgun licence at 15 before I joined the army at 16 .
Used to be a member of Truebore Rifle And Pistol Club , our club range was Bisley .
Moved to Lincolnshire several years ago when I took early (ish ) retirement . Love it but still miss Bisley , infuriating though it was at times .
As my eyes are now struggling with iron sights and lack of decent ranges have concentrated on more short range stuff and scoped vermin rifles and particularly enjoy getting obsolete calibres shooting and put on my ticket ( in spite of the dreadful Firearms Licensing unit being completely clueless ) .
Enough I hear you cry !
Regards
John

Welcome, you are at the bottom of the county I assume, and more to the point do you run a Triton :)
