I'm only one shooter in the UK blu my opinion makes no difference what so ever. There are 19 choices I would probably tick four of them. Handguns would not be one of my choices but it could be some one else's .

I agree with what had been said,previously, but wasn't following thread at the time - actually on placement, so wasn't really following the Forum let alone this thread! :o

Then again, it was started over 2 years ago, so it not surprising that it goes quiet periodically or people miss posts.

An attitude such as that will only hasten the demise of the sport. Your opinion does matter, it's what keeps the sport alive as long as it's voiced in the right places and when needed to be voiced such as in defence of the sport as a whole and not just individual disciplines.

Yet in the past despite you having had your fun with them, you asked why people would want them back again.

Like I said, your own worst enemies

Hi Grant, I get what you are saying mate. I'm sure a lot of people read it and I'd have thought that after the post Dromia put up people would have responded in some way to it because it pretty much sums up how things are over there.

For me, if it shoots, I'll probably happily spend the day shooting it.
Not the biggest fan of bench rest shooting but otherwise I'd tick the lot

Definitly agree with safetyfirst, would love to do a bit of 3 gun at some point
