SHOOTING

"S.M.R.C. MEETING" -- The Historic Arms part of the NSRA's August Rifle Meeting: 10th & 11th AUGUST 2013

This is one of the cheapest Meetings at Bisley --- Matches for
Vintage, Classic, Veteran and "Open Historic" Rifles --
           Rimfire AND Centre-Fire Gallery calibres --
                     Target, Sporting, Military and "Schutzen" classes --- (special award for Rook Rifles)
are contested in a friendly way by shooters in 3 Classes according to prowess. There are some Challenge Trophies, plus Place Certificates and Skilled Shot Certificates from the NRA, and each entry gets a free ticket for the draw for a Classic Rifle (donated by Classic Gun Co for the last 12 years).
Originally Prone and Standing (Offhand) at 50y, 2013 includes "Standing Rested" Matches -- a Victorian Tradition still shot in some parts of Germany and the USA, where the firer is allowed to rest the barrel / fore-end on a stepped rest. If anyone wants details of the "stepped rests", please contact me ---- they are easy to make and can be readily set up on any range. TRY IT!

 

I can e-mail you a Match-List and also an unfinished "Rules & Regs" document (missing mainly the target dimensions). We should not need the latter, as 98% of the entrants happily abide by the "SPIRIT OF THE ORIGINAL" concept but it is better to be safe than sorry.

VOLUNTEERS to assist with RO-ing and other functions would be most welcome -- allowing our decreasing band of long-term regulars to actually get some shooting in. Please contact me -- -thanks.
