Thread: Something to look forward to in 2014.

    Something to look forward to in 2014.

    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 ( ) 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.

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Having shot on the BSRC range many times I can say without doubt that those who attend will be in for a good shoot.

    Will the Running Boar be available?

    Might be worthwhile if it is to get some .22 L/R shooting is as well.

    May I wish you all the best with this venture.

    We haven't confirmed the format of the shoot yet Kevin but I would assume that both the running boar and running deer will be available, and also the electronic scoring system static targets. I am in total agreement with you that those who attend will be in for a very enjoyable shoot.

    Stop taking the p*ss out of my bike. There must be one or two who like it because every time I turn around somebody else has stolen it and ridden off.

    I have to admit that the electronic targets are something to be seen and appreciated. One day all clubs will have these marvels of technology that even give you a shot by shot account of your shooting and a print out of the score. It's worth the trip just to see how a proper range is set up and run.

    Multiman I will be posting details of the event in due course just put Sunday 8th June 2014 in your diary for now and hopefully we will see you there.

    I think that six months notice is probably enough for me to get my act together and make myself available. Unless that's when my friend's wedding in Canada is. I need to check. Either way, I need the practice. They published my score after the last club match and I didn't like it...

    OK, it's not the same week, so it's in my diary!

    Brilliant news Mike and big thanks to ndt man for his support of this event which has to have been one of the SD annual highlights for the last 3 years. Let me know as soon as the details start to take shape and we'll assist with promoting it as best we can.
