Portishead Shooting Club saw the first AGM of BenchrestUK at the weekend: Benchrest UK – Promote, encourage, facilitate and develop the sport of air rifle and rimfire benchrest shooting both within the UK and worldwide They plan to run indoor and outdoor Postal competitions next year and sponsor head to head outdoor comps at various clubs. They also see the need to be flexible in the way people shoot off a rest to bring together the NSRA and European and World rules at UK level. This organisation will be the official link into the European and World comps, where obviously we have to abide by their rules, but in terms of UK comps go you can shoot the NSRA style if that is what you prefer. It was good to see Neil from SWEFTA come along at my invite to see how things are run and it looks like their is growing interest in the South West for all things Benchrest. I am also hearing of other clubs around the country setting up their own benchrest comps for their members and getting a high take up, often times getting people involved in competitive shooting for the first time.
