    Hi All,

    I have just read a post on another forum (Will not mention it) statting that Camo gear is not to be worn at Bisley.

    Is this a wind up or is it for real???

    Cheers,

    Fred

    For HFT it is fine,

    I do not think they like it on the center fire ranges though

    Thanks for that. With the size of my backside, camo pants are nice and cheap enough to warrant rolling around in the mud.

    Once again, thanks.

    Cheers,

    Fred

    For all those that do not know Bisley very well.

    It is not a one club ground.

    The grounds have 30+ clubs(im sure someone knows each and every club on site) ranging from the great air rifle/pistol indoor ranges and out ,clay pidgeon,shotgun through to rimfire,303, to name but a few.

    Some of bisley ranges are 1000+ metres and are busy all year long. MOD practise using the night sniper scopes too

    These grounds have been the home of shooting diciplines for hundreds of years.

    Though the BFTO air rifle and pistol club have only been on these grounds for about 20years

    History lesson over

    Bisley(NRA) would only let serving soldiers wear camo around any part of the grounds which i now believe has been lifted but wise to check with the NRA.

    This has never affected HFT/FT at the BFTO as you can wear it while shooting but if you wander away from the clubhouse/carpark we always suggested maybe changeing a jacket to brake up the camo.

    When you visit next i suggest a wander around the whole campus its an enlightning experiance.

    regards
    loopy

    So there is no truth in the rumour that the zip on your waterproofs burst at Kelmarsh due to excessive pie eating:p:p:p:D:D:D:D
