    Need to buy a shooting jacket since I recently tried shooting with one on and has greatly improved my standers but these things seem to come quite expensive. I don't need any top brands like Anschuts, just a stiff canvas shooting jacket and dont mind second hand as I dont intend to spend too much.

    Anyone knows where I can buy something similar from the UK? Here in Malta nobody caters for such shooting clothing :(

    Also..................what is a gimp jacket? :eek::eek::eek:

    Many thanks

    A jacket for gimps, usually made by Anschutz and various other brands for 10m and 3P shooting.:D;)

    So basically a gimp jacket is the same jacket used in the 10m Match events.................so in the title of the thread I was referring to the same thing! :eek::eek::eek::eek:

    Stupid me! :eek:

    Anyone knows where I can purchase one from the UK?..........no need for top brands and second hand's ok too.

    Thanks

    For the money, intershoot is a good option.

    A motorcycle jacket will do pretty much the same job just buy the smallist one that will fit you
