    Novice in Kent

    Morning all

    I am in my mid-40's, originally form scotland, moved to London in the mid-80's and have been in Kent for 2 years. I have been shootig .22 rimfire for a few months and have applied for my sgc (despite hitting about 5 in every 70 clays! - still - practice is the answer!) and would like to try various forms of hunting (I have betetr scores with the .22 than the 12g - honest!)

    I have not shot full bore since I was about 14 in the Air training Corps where I was able to shoot an SLR - seem to remember I had a reasonable grouping then too.

    So essentially I am pretty much a total novice so any ints and tips about learning would be welcome. particluarly about learning to shoot full bore as well as stalking and if it is worth doing a course at Bisley or better to spend a day at BASC or just ot go out and book some stalking time.

    anyway - I have whittered on long enough!

    Cheers for now

    You might start with a visit to Bisley on their open day where you can try different disciplines for a small cost. It's a good day out where you can chat to lots of knowledgable folk. Pay a visit to the British Sporting Rifle Club lots of members are stalkers.
