My shooting experience commenced many years ago when, as a boy, I learnt to shoot air rifle. When I commenced work, my interest in shooting was encouraged because my employers still retained the old Home Guard rifle and pistol range that was on their premises and kept its status as an ‘approved range’. This range was open daily so there was no shortage of practise opportunity. I shot small bore and full bore rifle and pistol competitively.
Changing jobs, I lost the use of the rifle and pistol range so moved my interest to shotgun shooting. I am primarily a game shooter, mainly walked up rough shooting, but given the chance I will gladly spend time in a hide on the foreshore.
