    19 years ago today in 1995, i shot a paper target to obtain this certificate from the British Airgun Shooters Association.
    Used my 1st rifle, A HW35.
    Doesn't seem like 19 years ago really, am just wondering.
    Does anyone else have one still ?:)

    Deffo summat to hang on to like you have done Jinx, I always wanted one of the pin badges -and sew on patches they used to do! Dunno if they still do em now! There certainly not featured in the advertisements anymore!
    So tell us what you had to do to be awarded this certificate then! :)

    I remember those badges :)
    Don't know if they do them anymore either mate but I doubt it.
    It was fun to get something like that back then.
    As for the certificate though, you had to fill out the form in the mag, airgun world, send it off in the post with a small payment and you got back you're target and some instructions.
    You shot the target and posted it back then you got you're grade a week or 2 later.
    Mines 2nd place, marksman, I think the top mark was sharpshooter.
    I do wonder does anyone else still have theirs ?
    What I remember most is the sweat lashing off me when I'd fired 9 shots and was on number 10 thinking please don't be a flyer :D

    That's the time I had most fun mate,
    Learning everything etc, great fun and the badges helped too :)
    They should still do it.
    I've still got my Bisley badge and my NEFTA pin for hitting 5 chickens though :D
