Extra Gallery Rifle Comp – Sun 27th Jan

Posted by on Jan 21, 2013 in All News, Club Competitions, FAC, Featured | 0 comments

Shooters who turned out for the recent Gallery Rifle competition may recall that we had intended to also shoot a Multi-Target Service ‘B’ competition, but the large turn-out made it unfeasible. So we rescheduled this competition to take place on Sunday 27th January instead. It was for Full-Bore Underlever Rifles, LBRs and LBPs. The results are in! See them online...

Timed & Precision (PP1) Comp – 14 Jan 2013

Posted by on Jan 15, 2013 in All News, Club Competitions, FAC, Featured | 0 comments

  With the cold gnawing at our bones and John Munt reduced to shouting ‘SHOOT NOW!’ because the turning system on the targets was frozen solid for the first detail, it was an interesting and competitive first Gallery Rifle competition for 2013.   The attendance was impressive, and may well be a record for recent years, as the membership continues to grow steadily. Some of the shooting was very impressive too – the...

The next gallery rifle competition at the club will be an America Match on Sunday 18th November 2012 at 10:00.   There was some debate at the Club today on the exact courses of fire and target selection and an official manual was consulted accordingly. Not sure if this is the actual manual, but some members may still find it an interesting read (downloadable in PDF format)!   Our version will be for full-bore and small-bore firearms...

Rossi ’92 .38 / .357

Posted by on Nov 11, 2012 in Members Contributions, Members Guns, Picture Galleries & Videos | 0 comments

  My first under-lever, bought for Gallery Rifle competitions was a Winchester ’94 AE (replica – of course!). I really enjoyed shooting it but the action was just too unreliable for competitions and there was a high risk of it not cycling properly and causing jams at crucial moments. I managed to sell it though (well, ‘buyer beware’ and all that!) and I used the cash raised to get this gun. I had intended to go for...
