    I spoke to the guys setting up the gazebos in the rain....

    I was down at Bisley on Saturday morning and didn't see one sign for it at the camp. A shame as I would have called in to have a look.

    That's true but there was a large sign providing directions to the RSPCA which made me smile! Both days were however “sold out” well in advance of weekend.

    The event went well with a lot of recognisable faces from NRA Open Days. Most enjoyed the chance to shoot sitting, kneeling and standing rather than just prone and fully supported as per Open Day restrictions. Even with double sticks, many also gained a far better appreciation of what’s needed by way of marksmanship to ensure a clean kill at 100m under non “gravelbelly” conditions.

    Given there seemed little restriction on the amount of shooting a punter could do other than with the 375 it was good value too at my reading:
    Firing Points
    Course of Fire
    Butt Zero CZ 455 Varmint Thumbhole .17 HMR
    NRA .22 rifles
    5 shots at small and large targets, variable height
    Butt Zero
    Remington 597 VTR A-2 16” .22LR
    Marlin 1894C .357 Mag
    11 shots total, completion only on hitting all targets.
    Running Boar
    CZ 455 Evolution .22LR
    NRA .22 rifles
    10 slow OR 10 fast Running Boar
    Statics in Shed

    Savage Axis .243 Package
    CZ 550 American Safari Mag .375 H&H – 2 shots in 1 position only
    Remington 700 Target Tactical .308 Win
    2 shots per position,
    Stand with Sticks
    Running Deer
