Open Meetings for Repeating Pistols
The Surrey Branch of the M.L.A.G.B. set up this type of shoot especially for a wider range of both firearms and courses of fire, allowing Black Powder substitutes and “Smokeless Conversions” and even two-handed shooting.
The programme includes Slow-, Timed- & Rapid-fire, “Bobber” (turning target) and “Surrenden” (against the clock) for “Standard, Target and Free Percussion Revolvers” and “Modern Muzzle-loading pistols”.
It is likely that the NRA Rules will be expanding to cover these classifications and courses, which will affect the various Open Meetings such as the “Phoenix”, “Imperial Historic Arms” and the “Trafalgar”.
There are already three 2017 Open Meetings at Bisley for these – April 8/9 (Army Target Shooting Club), April 22/23 (South London Rifle Club) and May 6/7 (M.L.A.G.B. National Meeting) --- all awaiting written confirmation of the bookings by the NRA.
Also in the pipeline are matches at the “NRA Imperial Meeting” (? July 15/16) and one run by Surrey Branch, MLAGB --- possibly in September.
Details will be available from the main website of the MLAGB as well as the Surrey Branch site so……….
Watch these spaces!
