Thread: Elevated shooting

  1. #1

    Elevated shooting

    I have a requirement to do some trial shooting from an elevated position. It needs to be about 40 feet high with targets placed from 30 to 300 metres away. I have tried this before in Scotland with some success but its a very long way to go and the whole activity takes about five days to carry out.
    I know this fits in with a recent thread but that gave me the idea to ask around on here as you all cover the uk.
    I should also say that:
    This is a legitimate activity related to my work
    It would be covered by appropriate risk assessments and public liability indemnities
    I have tried shooting from platforms and scaffolding towers but they all move about too much
    Ideally I need somewhere within an hour of the M25
    An old water tower or similar would be good
    Shooting into a quarry is an option but not too close to other houses or habitation.

    I appreciate this is a long shot (well you do have to get the occasional laugh in) but if anybody does know of a possible location could they please PM me. I will of course pass on any relevant findings to anybody interested.
    Thanks

    If you have access to the land suitable, rent a cherry picker and shoot from that.


    Alternatively, WMS at Sweet Lamb in wales is the place to go.

    Been down the cherry picker route, ok but time consuming and I would be a bit cagey about what I do but it is quite legitimate!

    Fair enough, I don't blame you. No I really want to know!!! I'll just guess for the next hour or so, it'll keep from getting board...
