Something for the weekend?
|Yes after 3 hours travelling, a taxi, two trains and 25 minutes walk I ended up here at Bisley camp or the NSC as it has restyled itself.|

After booking in at the range office collecting radio etc I wandered off to the 600 yard point in trepidation for what would be the first range practise I have run in many years. The club is full of very senior shooters and collectors who make me look young, I had to do a decent job.
Bring on the shooters, the point starts to fill up and its looking good, 2 x L39s, a Moisin Nagant Carbine
That's not so much a rifle as a flame thrower.
Wait what's that I see over there?
I got back to the business in hand and over on the left is a Sharps 45-90;
The afternoon saw lunch at Clays followed by two of us venturing onto the 900 yard firing point, a glorious afternoons shooting even if we enjoyed it alone;
A night spent at the Artist Rifles Clubhouse and the next morning saw me here in the British Sporting Rifle Club area.

The Walther bolt action and semi auto rifle!
A very interesting rifle and a Beretta copy is available for which I am seriously sniffing around

Yes I have Gout, time to deal with that!
