On Sunday May 2nd, the first Bank Holiday after lockdown, 9 shooters braved the displeasure of their families to shoot in the HBSA Rook and Rabbit Rifle competition at Bisley. The weather was fine and a good time was had by all. There were numerous socially distanced conversations and some shooting. Sorry, that should have been the other way round, the chat was incidental, the shooting was good but somehow rifles unused in lockdown lose accuracy and constant practice is needed to get good scores.

The format was modified for social distancing and the Rule of Six so there were only 16 slots and shooter numbers were far less than previous years. That being said, a good selection of aged rifles showed their mettle - 11 BSAs including two 310 Cadets, 3 double hammers and variety of other diminutive rifles made well before any of us were born.

The scores are posted on the HBSA website here >>>>
