OK then - who wants to join the shooting sessions? Shotgun and smallbore rifle, at the top field at Alison's. Rather than 'everyone together' as before, I'd like to arrange people in smaller groups or pairs. Please post below if you're interested and what you would like to do (shotgun, rifle or both).

Count me in. I've shot before quite a few times but never seemed to have any talent for it. Hopefully a fresh start will solve that!

will you be bringing some air rifles again for the youngsters? Think my eldest might be keen ( what age do they have to be for that?)

I'm pretty sure Happytechie will want to, but I suppose I'll let him speak for himself for once

"You just missed!"

"That was very close!"

Isn't that what BB said last time

I know he said it to me, although my OH thought I was miles away.

Yep count me in. Rifle please.

This probably sounds daft, but is there any way to practice at moving targets for rifle shooting or have you just got to practice on clays and transfer the skills?

Should you be shooting moving targets with a rifle anyway - I don't think so.
