Historic Arms @ Spring Action Weekend 21&22 March 2015

posted 17 Feb 2015, 13:56 by Tony Cattermole   [ updated 20 Feb 2015, 08:24 ]

This year for the first time the NRA are offering Historic Arms matches during the Gallery Rifle Spring Action weekend.

The idea is to offer more Historic Arms matches spread throughout the year culminating in the Trafalgar meeting in October.

Matches available during the SAW will include both Gallery Rifle historic matches such as the bobber and advancing, together with popular 100 & 200 yds matches. In total over 60 historic matches are on offer. If the event is a success then I'm sure it will be a regular addition to the calendar.

Entry form is available from this link together with full match list for all events at SAW.


Message from NRA:

Dear All
I hope this email finds you well.

As the Spring Action Weekend gets closer (21-22 March), we’re really hoping to see some Classic shooters taking part. As you’re aware we’ll be running the most popular 200m events (including Rapid and Snaps, and prone and standing on the Round Bull and Sand & Sky targets) on Short Siberia, and 20+ more events at 25m on Cheylesmore for rifles and muzzle loading pistols and revolvers. These will include the Bobber, MLAGB, Slowfire, Duelling and Surrenden events.

Two things please: we would be very grateful for RO support to run these events, and would encourage yourselves (and if you would encourage your friends/colleagues) to take part. We’re very keen to make our events at Bisley more inclusive to the Classic & Historic community.

If you do feel able to offer your support, would you please complete the online form – link below..


Again, very many thanks to you all.

Sally Wilson NRA Deputy Head of Shooting and Training
