Just want to say a big thank you to NDT Man off this site who invited me to shoot at the British Sporting Rifle Club at Bisley yesterday. He was hoping that we could perhaps sort out a charity shoot in aid of H4H for the members of the SD site but the club has a very busy programme already booked up for this year but there is a remote possibility that something might just be arranged for next year. I’ve shot at this club on a couple of occasions in the past with BASC and didn’t need convincing how good the club really is but all the same I thoroughly enjoyed myself and also enjoyed meeting a few of the club members who couldn’t have been more welcoming or helpful. Genuine sporting rifle shooters the lot of them.
I just wish that this club was a little bit closer to home because I would be applying for membership, that’s if they would consider having me as a member.
For those unfamiliar with the club it has the finest sporting rifle facilities in the country bar none. I had the opportunity to shoot both running deer and disgrace myself on the fast runs of the running boar. I also shot the static targets which have electronic scoring so no need for a quick dash down the range on the bicycle to score. The facilities are light years ahead of anything that my home range can provide and if a shoot can be arranged in the future I’m sure that all that attend will have as good a time as I did yesterday. I have to admit to chickening out of the 10m air rifle running target after hearing how humiliating that can be and having made such an ass of myself on the fast runs of the running boar.
Thanks again Mike and please pass on my thanks to all the club members that I had the very real pleasure of meeting yesterday.
