More than 300 students at Liverpool University enjoyed their first taste of shooting thanks to BASC’s ST2 Shooting Simulator.
The state-of-the-art simulator, which has now been used by over 4,000 people, was based in the city for just two days and was a popular addition to the fresher’s fair.
Since the event more than 85 students have booked in for shooting lessons with the university team.
The ST-2 simulator – the most realistic on the market – is always accompanied by BASC-accredited shotgun coaches to provide a professional introduction to shotgun shooting.
Peter Marshall, BASC’s Sporting Services Officer, said: “The simulator is an ideal way to introduce newcomers to shooting and it was great to see so many students enjoying their first ever experience of shooting. We now hope they will continue their development alongside the university’s shooting club.”
Duncan Greaves, a BASC council member, said: “We were delighted to be invited along to the University, it provided a great opportunity for us to reach out to a new audience and expose some of them to the existence of shooting and shooting related sports for the first time.”
