Hi there

Been lurking for a bit, thought it was about time I said hello

Hello

I first joined a club back in the mid 90s and shot full bore happily. Was about to apply for an FAC when Dunblane happened and was advised to hold off. Life moved on as did I and finally settled in Cheshunt. Having not shot since the 90s I sought out a local club with a view to shooting Black Powder. I’m glad to say I’m now a member of Cheshunt CRPC where I shoot Black Powder as my main discipline.
My luck being what it is, Covid put paid to me shooting as the Club had to shut for covid so only been back at it for a couple of weeks, but its great to back at it again

I’m currently applying for my FAC and have my interview next week (gulp!)

Cheers

Hello and welcome to the forum..

The best advice for the interview is be yourself, have answer ready for why you want any particular rifles you have put down to be purchased...

Good luck with that and your future shooting hobby,

Alan
