Once again it will be a 'fun' competition with an element of luck in the scoring and open to all classes of rifle (but NO HMEs, Muzzle Loaders or .22RF please).

It is hoped that entrants will be able to shoot at least twice during the morning, so long as you arrive in good time.

Guests will be most welcome at both the shoot and lunch, but ONLY FAC holding guests at the shoot please. To shoot, you and any guests must not be 'prohibited persons' under the Firearms Act and must be in possession of a current FAC and appropriate valid Certificate of Competency.

Course of Fire:

There will be a single course of fire for all classes - 2 marked (convertible) sighters and 10 to count on an NRA/HBSA Historic Round Bull or Tin Hat Target (Aiming mark 18'' diameter) with a central V Bull of 5 inches diameter)

V Bull                                         5 points
Bull or Inner (in the Black)    2 points
Hit on 36 inch target face     1 point

Rifle Classes:

1. Military .30 cal (nominal) iron sighted rifles (as issued)
2. Military and Target rifles with 'Target sights'
3. Large bore rifles (inc Black Powder)
4. Any rifle with optical sights (no HMEs)

All entries are to be made online (above)

Entry at the Range on the day is strongly discouraged and may lead to disappointment due to lack of range space.

Lunch Bookings MUST be made online before 01 Dec 2016 in order to firm up numbers for catering.

HBSA members and their guests who do not wish to shoot, will be most welcome at the lunch.

I look forward to seeing lots of you at this occasion to round off our shooting year.
