Historical McQueen Championship
Open Meeting
Saturday 9th May 2015

200 Yards

Classes for Classic, Veteran and Post Veteran
(first generation 7.62mm)
Service & Sporting Rifles

This is the third year that the HBSA has held this event and the course of fire will remain unchanged from last year:-

Following last year’s successful range practice and to minimize expenditure we will not have a dedicated sighting target available.

A handheld sighting target on a backer will be used (see the entry form for target details); the backer will be as large as possible taking into account safety and practicality for the markers.

For open sighted matches the target will only appear over cover and not in the loop holes.
This proved to be easier to acquire the target on appearance.

Please remember that this match like all others is run by volunteers so we would ask for your understanding and assistance.

Paul Smith is the Match organizer and the entry form includes contact details.

This event is intended to encourage the use of Classic, Veteran and Post Veteran (first generation 7.62mm) Service and sporting rifles under competitive conditions but mainly to have an enjoyable morning shooting alongside other like minded individuals.

If you have not previously attended this meeting come and have a go, we are always ready to assist and encourage new comers.

If you own a suitable rifle come and have a go, you never know you may well show us all how it should be done.

There are classes for just about every type of Historic Rifle.

Entry forms can be found on the HBSA Website or from Paul Smith
