    Long Distance Shooting In Europe

    When I was in Brugge back in May, we were having a meal in a restaurant and a Belgian chap homed in on my NZ Service Rifle polo shirt (happened a few times...) and introduced himself. Frank was in to service shooting and long distance stuff. We swapped book face details and, as a result, I'm now getting feeds of all sorts of interesting shoots etc over there.

    Check out the Facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/6349...67216/?fref=nf a recent post by Knut-Eric Rognes has some neat photos from a range in Norway where they look to be shooting off a rock platform. They have some nice gear, and at least one rock-hottie.

    Possibly @Norway knows that place.

    10MRT shooters do it 60 times, in two directions and at two speeds.

    I have to agree with shooting tops being a help overseas. All but one of my shooting experiences in the last six months have come about from conversations that only started because of my Wellington service rifle association top.

    Nope can't see the booky face link as I'm not a member. It gonna stay that way for me as well so you will just have to tell me when we next catch up.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    how the f...k do you use facebook!

    I have an account, I've clicked on the link, I've logged in and it takes me to that site which has a pretty picture of a range, but what then! I'm tired of looking at that picture, when do I find some words to read?

    It's a closed group so you have to join the group. This is a good thing so that when you post in a closed group only others in the group know you did so

    Have to admit that I don't know all the intricacies of face blog. I didn't join the group, but I think I see it because Frank is a member and we're now friends. Or maybe he joined me somehow... Dunno.
