Salut ,

In England - Mainly 22lr gallery rifle (recently started 1500 match) and classic mil-surp.

In France - a fairly boring static type shooting, with 22lr and mainly 9mm pistols and a bit of 200M TAR with my AR,

In Czech Rep - I just get it out of my system with what ever I want .
Pistols & SLR, mainly Glocks & VZ58, UZI etc ...
with the course of firing I want as long as it is moving, rapid & dynamic as it can be :good:

So I ticked "other" ;)

Ticked PSG plus other.

Four4islands multi-gun series, eight matches held at various clubs this year.

It requires a shotgun & a .22 rifle or lbp & is shot over a practical style COF where both guns are needed to complete each stage, great fun.

I think there would be more ppl shooting practical shotgun if more clubs opened up to the idea of practical style shooting. It's sometime I live doing but have to travel mile to do

hopefully with the growing choise for LBP more clubs will start to offer practical pistol type shoots as I miss this discipline the most

Interesting - for the Full Bore forum, by far the highest percentage is for Small-bore.......

Good point Adrian and looking at the Poll I did not include Small bore/Rimfire at the time yet I am quite an avid Small bore shooter these days. I would expect many centre fire shooters to get out with a Rimfire when the opportunity arises as it is a great way to hone positional and wind reading skills

I'd consider myself primarily a full-bore shooter but I definitely put many more rounds through my small-bore rifles as they are easier to shoot (rarely a day goes by when I don't target shoot with one or more of them) and they are just great fun.
When I'm after live quarry (without a shotgun) at a guess it's about a 50:50 split between small-bore and full-bore. I really wish I had more time to do more of all the types of shooting I like - but the real world keeps getting in the way.
