    No restrictions but spirit of the course is hunting scenarios. We are not running it as a match. This is an experience for people to get out and enjoy shooting and for new guys to come along without the pressure of a match. We will have score cards for people to see how they went amd see where they might need to improve.

    I would'nt be able to attend, but your on the right track. Its very important for the competitors to enjoy the shoot.

    I've hosted 100s of shooting comps and the first point/tick on the agenda was: the guys have to enjoy it.

    Ask for feedback - positive&negative.

    Maybe next time.

    As above December and Jan is pretty much always fully booked for me but would be interested in a less formal shoot than a comp.

    As mentioned above Cam, it's not a comp. Maybe if it proves popular, they might run one later in year you can attend mate.

    I would be there this time but I’ve only got 7 rounds left and nobody seems to know when more projectiles are due in the country. It was 2 weeks ago 8 weeks ago and I’ve been waiting since august

    We may try and have it open less formal on one of our monthly range days later. @Mr300WSM what projectiles are you after. You could always get some factory ammo.
