H4H shoot at Bisley
Thanks mainly to the efforts of Ndtman the British Sporting Rifle Club have been extremely generous and have offered to host the Stalking Directory H4H charity rifle shoot at their superb range complex at Bisley Surrey on Sunday 8th June 2014. For those that haven’t had the opportunity to shoot on what must certainly be the very best sporting rifle lay out in the country this is a tremendous offer.
The BSRC will be able to comfortably accommodate far more shooters than we have ever been able to at Monmouth and at the same time provide greatly improved comfortable facilities. Now those guys from the South East won’t have any excuses as regards travelling and those of us who travel further will have just cause to make a proper week-end of it and perhaps socialise a little more, swapping lies and sipping the odd pint or two. Various accommodation will be available on Bisley camp including camping but this will need to be booked through the NRA ( www.nra.org.uk ) and as this time of the year is busy at Bisley it is recommended that you book your accommodation as early as possible, hence the heads up now.
For those that don’t know it the BSRC is one of a number of clubs that shoot on the world famous NRA camp. Many different types of shooting take place on the camp not just long range prone target rifle for the “gravel bellies”. LOL. All riflemen/shooters should visit the camp sometime in their lives if only to take in the atmosphere and the architecture, which is more akin to a Victorian theme park or living history museum than a sports venue. Though I can assure you from what I have seen the BSRC is probably far more progressive and up to date than most of the other clubs on camp.
Don’t be put off by stories that you have heard about over restrictive rules and regulations or of the need for a certificate of competence. There are ways and means of easily complying with everything that is necessary, just enter and enjoy. If you just let us know of any problems or worries beforehand we will endeavour to sort things out for you. What this shoot is about is meeting fellow shooters/stalkers and enjoying yourself safely while raising funds for H4H.
