    Nelson Air Rifle club have offered to host a fun shoot run according to UKSARC rules .

    I am wondering how many folk would be interested in attending a shoot ?

    If we can get some committment numbers wise , we'll go ahead and organise a shoot .

    Please indicate if you would be interested in coming along .

    If you are unfamiliar with the UK SARC rules , its a target sport , where you use standard huning / sporting rifles , and shoot at targets representative of quarry , at realistic ranges.

    Pretty much any shooting position is allowed .

    No using bipods , but you can use handy trees / logs etc if they are set up in the shooting area.

    If you sit to shoot , you can not use a cushion .

    You may not adjust yourr scope during the competition , set it up before and leave it alone for the entire competition .

    If you have a target rifle , you are welcome to shoot , we run a target rifle class.

    All safety rules common to all Airgun sports are enforced .

    More information can be obtained here http://www.uksarc.org.uk/

    Treetops Air Rifle Club in Newport are very strong in SARC competition & also run regular shoots .

    Regarding this shoot..

    Just to settle any points regarding this open shoot at nelson ARC

    This has been put to the club and held as an open shoot.

    Nelson Air Rifle Club is a field target club that is part of WAFTA, the club has full affiliation to UKAHFT and as such is a UKAHFT venue if and when required.

    We are not a venue for UKSARC and as such will not hold a full UKSARC competition.

    Regarding an open competition, Nelson ARC welcomes an open shoot at the club.

    Nelson ARC Secretary

    Not an official UKSARC shoot .

    Looks like the Field Target shooters are scared to shoot with the big boys!

    We have a "Fun" Course out as Side shoot on June 2nd at Tondu Gerry. 20 targets, mainly bigger 45ml and under 45 yards. Think there is one currently over 45y and about 4 reducers.
    Not sure how far from SARC rules that is but Sarc shooters are more than welcome to come down and have a bash. £3 entry prize money dependant on entries but at least £10 for 1st place?
    I call it "Easy Ft" as the course is designed to level out equipment wise any advantages.

    Simon , I like this idea better .

    I will talk to you when Tom & I come down in a few weeks , then we'll get all the "nuts & bolts" sorted out .

    Have a look at the website , its a grass roots shooting disciplne , and could eventually be a feeder to FT .
