We would like to thank Martin Roberts who gave his time for an evening talk on the safe use of muzzle loading firearms and black powder to pyrodex and beyond.  He also brought along some very old interesting guns and explained their history.  He was backed-up by Paul James who also gave a brief history on propellants and various stages of firing mechanisms through the ages.  A very enjoyable evening and thank you Martin and Paul.   If...

The weather during this month has been exceptionally good and we have been able to get on with the 50m range.  It is nearing completion so if the weather holds for a little bit longer, we may be able to hold competitions for the start of next year –  here’s hoping.   The small-bore competition which was held on the 18th was well attended and well done to Steve Hunt who took part in the competition using a bolt action rifle; ...

Yet again; another busy month with the air competition being the last on the competition calendar for this year but hopefully the boys who shoot air will be arranging a winter bench rest challenge which will take us up to Christmas. (12 weeks away – you don’t want to know that do you!!).   About Christmas – there is going to be a Club Christmas Dinner this year to be held on the County Showground in the Pavillion Hall on...

This month has been a very busy month with the BWSS Championships and our Western Shoot at the beginning of the month (score on the results page).   On the 50m range and all the work that has been carried out this month, we are pleased to say that it will probably be in operation soon.  Unfortunately, the range inspector has had a heart attack and our deepest sympathies lay with him and we hope he will soon be on the road to a complete...

The Man v Man Competition which took place on the 19th went very well, a good number entered and it was very competitive.  Charles, our vernerable Chairman and long standing member hung in there until he was knocked out in the final stages and the final was fought out between two of the younger members Vaughan and Barrie with Barrie being the better shot.  A very exciting competition to watch and even more exciting to take part.   The...

The 50m range is being turfed today and hopefully the range should be up and running fairly soon thanks to all the effort Barries Learmont has put in to the research and development of the range.  If you haven’t seen the range as yet, you have a pleasant surprise in store.   The club Open Days have attracted 19 visitors during the two half days which is much more than can be expected. We also had two arrivals before the open days due...
