    Guys,

    I have been given a free shooting pass this Saturday by the Mrs and wondered if there are any
    open HFT shoots on anywhere in the south?

    I don't mind a bit of a drive to get there.

    The NRA have an open day at bisley on sat so maybe a look around is in order.

    Bisley air rifle are putting a few targets out for the general public so not exactly what you might call a shoot but the BFTO are always welcoming visitors so a gun £3.00 is all you need as the tea and coffe are included.

    There is a couple of places for such things as a lovely hot cooked meal or bacon butties/bugers on the site.

    So plenty to see and do on sat think there may be a few trade stands too.

    regards

    I was hoping to get an HFT course in, but if there is nothing on I will just have to go out
    and shoot some small furry things ;)

    Swap it for a Sunday Pass mate, there's a 40 Target at M.A.D Sunday in the woods and the field so good practice for Tawd & Rivi :D:D:D

    So after not being able to find an HFT shoot for tomorrow I have made myself a full days
    shooting programme.

    07:00 Ratting in my next door neighbours chicken run.

    09:00 Target work in my mates field with my HFT kit.

    11:00 Rabbiting in the largest field of my shoot for the whole day :)

    Getting myself some food and tea made up and tomorrow I will be mostly shooting.

    Happy days :)

    Spent the whole day shooting, target work, bunny bashing and ratting.

    I am now bloody knackered, sunburned and all shot out, but I have had a good day.
