|BISLEY ANTIQUE AND CLASSIC SHOW
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
Vintage, Classic, Veteran and "Open Historic" Rifles
Rimfire AND Centre-Fire Gallery calibres --
Sporting, Military and "Schutzen" classes --- (special award for Rook
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).
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
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.
