Hah!!! Either the drum ain't working or nobody at my club likes me enough to compete with me.

 

Looks like a no-go then unless there is a singles comp?

Oh, I'm fresh all right!

 

And sometimes very personal!

 

Ask most of my female acquaintances!

Well now, thanks very much for the invite but I would soon be a poorer pensioner than I am now due to traveling costs!

 

Traveling to my 'Cowboy' shoots once a month is about all I can manage comfortably, so it looks like I shall just have to heckle the non-players at my club into more activity.

 

I mean, air rifle and pistol shooting has to be one of the cheapest forms of shooting but you would need a 10 foot bullwhip to stir some of our guys!

 

You would not believe the number of trophies that stand idle in our display cabinet now-a-days, still, I guess that is modern youth for you!

Hi Craftsman

If you and other club members wish to visit Leics & District to see the benchrest set up and get other info on the sport, just ask

The Midlands Benchrest League shoot at either 20yds or 25 yds with teams of 3 shooters, 20shots/round and 10 rounds each season

The league shoots to true (World/European Fed.)benchrest rules using front and rear sandbag rests.

Hi Craftsman              

This is a link to L&D's website and gives opening times   www.leicestershooting.co.uk/‎

Visit on a weekend and just ask the Duty Officer for info/membership details and a look at the ranges

Benchrest shooting takes place mainly on the indoor 25yd range, but UKBR22 targets are also shot on the outdoor air rifle 50yd range

 

Wednesday afternoons are also a good time to visit when BR shooting is taking place 1.30 - 4.30pm

What wonderful facilities I used to live locally although I was not into recreational shooting then, have to look them up next time I am in the area as I often visit friends in Leicester and Kibworth.
