I'm a hunter primarily (using rimfires and fullbores) but I also shoot 6 yard Bell Target and the occasional HFT.

I enjoy Bell Target shooting too.

My Lincoln Jefferies is still a tack driver that consistently rings the bell for me when I do my part.

i agree with bell shooting
once had a chance to do a reenactment of pub bell shooting with old air rifles

it was a great laugh but no beer allowed till we finished

I always descibe benchrest as a game of anti social darts with no beer

Shotgun wise i shoot pigeon & rough shoot game, plus some pest control.
Rifles in the UK are hunting & pest control, with the latter being foxes with centrefire & rabbits with the suppressed .22RF.
I shoot a lot of pistol, both revolver & semi auto in the US, including the occasional foray into Practical Pistol matches at my mate's club & 3 Gun.
Rifles in the US are mostly AR15 & FAL/L1A1 both on the range & in 3 Gun.
I don't do much bench shooting except for load development/sighting in.

Interesting to see how my shooting tastes have changed in the last 5 years, I no longer actively shoot F Open and have moved towards older service type and sporting rifles along with pest/vermin control and game, I even own a couple of rim-fire rifles now!

Gotta love T&P1 with an underlever. Looking forward to getting a long barrelled pistol again too, but this ones going to be in .22RF, Perhaps wait for the GSG when it comes out??
