Thank you Heather.

That got me thinking.
Would an informal forum shoot in 3 different locations be an idea?

One Rob's way, One at Diggle (or further north) and one at Bisley?
Identical competitions being held and results written down so we on the forum can decide the winner?

:?:



Good idea. Happy to help.

Heather

3 shoots works for me Christel.

I'd come to Bisley if we could get a range either side of Bisley Live at the beginning of October?

Yes that would probably make life easier for some people travel wise, personally I am happy shoot anywhere and at any target or distance as long as I have a rifle that suits the job :D

Bianchi with a pistol calibered lever gun or .22 semi? ;) ...... or even with an LBR for that matter!

I am hoping to have a go with a gallery rifle next week which may or may not be good news depending on if I like it..... (Deep down I know I will)

Ovenpaa, I was sceptical about lever action guns when I joined my club as I just wanted to shoot Full Bore. However, turning targets and the pressure of precision shooting against the clock are a infectious combination. Then throw in doing it with a semi auto 22 and it gets very serious.
