A (new) poll to see which disciplines you would like to shoot in the future. The more that answer the more accurate result we should see. The poll will be left open so new members can add to it.

You can tick multiple boxes.

Wait, so I can own a .55 calibre Boys anti-tank rifle, but not a .22 pistol?

The one not in the list that is a firm favourite for me is Hunter Field Shooting or Jagtfeltskydning and I intend to shoot my first national competition this year

The return of pistol shooting would be what I want. My other real interest is sporting rifles.

Me and a handful of mates wandered along to the running deer range at Bisley while it was in operation. Honestly, I have felt less hostility from reporting at riots than I did standing there for five minutes. Whoever runs the British Sporting Rifle Club at Bisley really needs to have a word with their RCOs because we felt totally shunned.

I find that strange as I have shot there on a couple of occasions in the past and have found the members that I spoke to a real friendly and helpful bunch.
