    Shops in Dorset

    I am off to Bovington, Dorset for 6 months on Monday, who accept for The Sportsmans Gun Centre is a good shop to look for equipment. It would be handy to know a few places to pop into every couple of weeks to see what items I don't currently have, but might think they are a good item to buy .

    Cheers TJ
    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Tank museum?

    Seriously, you've Steve Beaty at Ivythorn Sporting in Street (also Avalon Guns, but people seem to be a bit Marmite on them) and there's apparently not a bad shop in Poole - trying to remember the name.... None of them particularly close....

    The Tank Museum is about 100m away....Monkey world just down the road.

    Poole is about 30 mins away, as I have nothing to do on a weekend, so anywhere within a 50 mile radius is do-able....

    ....wouldn't it make for a more entertaining day out if they combined these two attractions that are virtually on top of each other and let the monkeys drive the tanks around??
    Nothing is worse than having an itch you can never scratch

    You've got Purbeck Shooting School about 2 miles up the road, gun shops in Dorechester, Poole, Wimborne, Blandford. A good gunsmith 4 miles away M.A.Rainback.

    Also some large privately owned wealthy estates and stunning coatline.

    Also the best herd of Jap Sika in the world at your feet.

    Get it right TJ. monkeys wear red caps and drive Land Rovers. It takes panache and style to drive a tank (especially the little fast ones).
    If the museum's only 100yds away, you must be in Stanley Barracks. What's in there these days?
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.
