Lloyd and his team at B.A.R. have very kindly donated a new Webley pistol draw prize for this event. :D :D :D Thank you.

A few people have contacted me concerned about their shooting skillls (or lack of it. Obviously they havent seen some of our members shoot) and the 'basic' equipment they would be using. :( Its not WHAT you shoot its HOW MUCH you enjoy shooting.
If you are SAFE - your welcome. We are not concerned about what rifle you use, as long as its legal and you follow our basic rules, your very welcome. One of the classes is: OPEN SIGHT remember them ? :rolleyes: Used to come free with every rifle. If you havent got a rifle - we will loan you one!

ALL the prizes (rifle, pistol, scope etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc.) are DRAW prizes, picked at the end of the days shooting. You dont even have to shoot to win (but we prefer you tried our 30 'entertaining' target course)! :D

EVERY PENNY drawn from the shooting event (main and side shoots) will be donated to Manchester Childrens Hospital Funds.

Its neither. Its to Rivington R. own rules aquired over nearly 20 years of experience.

For example: You can shoot from any safe position (including sitting) as long as no part of your forearm, hand or rifle touches your knee. (No F.T. 'wrap round' stance.) Elbows yes.

You can alter your scope mag. and parallax at any time but NOT while your looking through it. (No range finding.)

You have to be CAPABLE of touching the target lane marker (but dont have to actually BE touching it at the time of the shot).

Oh - and no resting on trees, marker pegs, posts or B & D workmates. No tripods, bipods or monopods.

2 & 1 scoring. Targets set between 8 and 50 yards. Mixed kill zone sizes. 30 'interesting' target main course with several fun side shoots.

We even have a 'Open Sight' class. Remember them? They used to come free with every rifle.

If you require details of the shoot please e-mail me.

A.T.B.

Ive just got back from our outdoor range where a few (:( ) of the members have been busy all day fixing target bases, clearing shooting points and paths etc. ready for this charity event.
The course, while testing is fun and set amongst the trees and bushes and promises to provide a good days shooting entertainment. :rolleyes: :D
More prizes have been promised. :D :D
