After a great shoot today for Gallery Rifle the next one is McQueens (Modern at 300x). I should have taken some pictures today as we had a great selection of interesting items but I had far too much fun shooting and seeing how far a VZ58 will send an empty case (quite along way).
After the above comment I received a contribution:-
Some old favourites, namely an M1 Garand and M1 Carbine, thankfully not on the current banning list.
on the next shoot we will be welcoming guests from 21st Kent Home Guard Target Shooting Club who contacted us about a shoulder to shoulder comp for McQueens via Graeme of Sporting Services.
Their Chairman Peter Zeminski came along to see the range today and we should see between 4 and 10 visitors for the next McQueens shoot. Having met Peter I’m glad to report that they sound exactly like us, (ordinary people who just want to enjoy their sport). So this will be a competition based on the top scores from each club but it will be our usual low key all inclusive event where there is some light hearted taking of scores.
So I am warning you in advance that we will have visitors and please make them welcome. Brush up on your zero for the shoot. As we may have more than normal please make every effort to get ready for your detail and sort yourselves out as quickly as possible so we can get plenty of shooting in. Hopefully the weather will be kind or we will just have to get all the Gazebos out (we now have 3) and carry on anyway.
Most of you know it already but I have re-added the McQueens Course of fire to the relevant COF Page.
See you in two weeks.
The scores are on the results page and here as well.

The next shoot is a Gallery Rifle
See you then
Results now posted on the Results page and below. Low turnout but probably due to the holiday season join us next time for our invitation shoot where we should see some Bookham TR shooters and welcome the Sussex County RA for their autumn shoot with us
See you then
Barclay cup 2018
The Course of Fire has been posted on the COF page. It is pretty much the same as last time as that seemed ok. See you on Sunday.
Scores on the Results page – Well shot the Reed brothers who zeroed for each other!!
The shoot was fun but it went on a bit and I remembered half way through that I meant to revise it after the last one. So if it took too long and you didn’t have time to stay to the end – blame me. I will overhaul the course of fire and stick to two distances and see how we can make it run a bit quicker.
It will help if you have a zeroed rifle! The principal is ok and seems popular but there is more work to do on the course of fire.
Will try harder.
Its going to be hot and I promise there wont be any sand shifting this week.
The course of fire is on the COF page and a further copy can be viewed using the link below.

See you on Sunday
Please see and consider signing this petition – It may help with the current legislation. – Keep updated on this at our Legislation page
Phew what a scorcher!
Actually with fewer numbers we got through faster and stayed largely in the shade. A very pleasant day all round. Some good shooting from the usual suspects and the VZ58 are starting to give the AR15’s a run for their money. I will get mine about right by the time I have to hand it in!
Dont forget to sign the petition and write to your MP. The governments argument for the bans are weak as there have been no crimes and if you think you aren’t affected your turn will come unless you do something. contact your MP using the very good They work for you website.
It really couldn’t be much easier so spare 10 minutes for your sport and your mates.

Well that was a busy day. We got the sand delivered (4 tons) and a number of us got it from the car park to the butts. That was hard enough but we were overwhelmed with offers of support to help get this into place.
Well that wasnt strictly true as I rather press-gang al those present to help shift the stuff up the bank and into place. So apologies about that but we can do the sand job with out a strong contingent so the willingness of members to help move the stuff was really appreciated. There are some jobs we can’t to without everyone helping. We are volunteers and I am most grateful for the support.
It took 20 minutes to shift the sand into place and then get on with the shoot that was pretty busy. I think the exercise whilst being good for us did wear some of us out.
There were however some good scores and it was a good day.
Thanks again for the help. We rely on everyone lending a hand.
See you at the next one that is Service Rifle.
Scores on the Results page. – If there are any errors in the results, blam me I’m Knackered!
Sundays shoot is the above that this year is being shot as a Queens 2. That is to say 2×10 at 3/5/6 TR first detail followed by Scoped etc.
See you then
We have a work party coming up and it may be next weekend but we have yet to finalise the details so keep an eye on the site for an announcement.
Good day and was pretty busy. There was a bit of a delay to get going as we discovered some local wasps had built a nest in the 300 yard junction box. This had to be humanely removed before we could get going (a broom and a foot). No injuries reported. Some good shooting and excellent scores but unfortunately not from the TR contingent! could try harder.
No firm news yet on the proposed work party so keep an eye on the web for news. The Scores are on the results page.
