Re: Great News, range re-opens
Ah talk of Bisley.. i remember shooting there a few years on the trot at the ALL Arms Championships(or whatever they call em these days. We had one hell of a laugh, lived in tents, matches during the day(exept the night shoot) chased all the local skirt during the evenings, heck me and another guy from 3Bn Royal Anglians went over to Gilford to the WRAC training place on pretenses of filling up the landrover, we got changed in to civies, hid the rover and hit the NAAFI, only us blokes and a bunch of WRAC's.. didn't take long till word got out and the PR's came and arrested us.. we got away with that by the skin of our teeth..Falling plate was the best fun, followed by the machine gun / section match. Para cup wasn't bad either but i wouldn't make it to the firing point these days Match shooting with the Army was fun. Can't ever remember getting to Radnor though. Spent a lot of time on Middlewich and Fingeringhoe in Colchester, Purfleet near London, Caterick, Warcop,Otterburn,etc.
I wish these Kraut authorities would open up the ranges here, its a right sod to get anything longer than 300m. and getting on to Sennelager ist a right night mare these days,
