We will check with the guest day rule and advise - could you advise if the SAC has an Home Office approved Gun Club ?

There will be other events later in the year to attend if anyone is unable to attend on the 25th

There are still places for the 25th - though you need to book via the email to me - please don’t leave it to the last minute to do so 👍🏻

The day is being run as a guest day. So you can shoot if you have an FAC but are not a member of BDS or BASC.
You can also shoot if you have no FAC and there is someone willing to let you use their rifle.
You must register soon - by the 17th July - as we have to notify the police of your details 7 days before the event .
On the day you have to sign an appropriate declaration.

We were lucky with the weather again and 30 people came along to shoot.

Thanks to all who made it and those involved in the hard work of running it, the skills test was just that....I need to practice shooting of my elbows!!

Well shot @Edinburgh Rifles @srvet and @Ronin in particular.

It was our first time of running this particular course of fire so we will be much smoother next time!
