The ICSI Website
Members are slowly registering on the new ICSI website. Remember if its your first time using the site you need to first go to “Become a Member” and then you can set up your username and password.
Each week we trawl the publications of the Shooting community looking for articles which may be of interest to members. I am sure I miss many interesting and informative snippets of information which members may find interesting.
If you find something which you think may be of interest, please send it to me so that it may be shred with members.
News from Around the Sport
Olympic Skeet Home International
The report featured last week was taken from the CPSA website, unfortunately it was for 2019!!!
Apparently with age comes wisdom and stupidity in equal measure, that is , I didn’t check the date and I know I should have checked the date. Apologies to all those concerned.
The results for the event which took place at Doveridge Shooting Ground can be found by following the links below:
As you will see our members put on a really good performance and congratulations to both Frank Millar and Phil Musson.
In the picture above , we have a very proud Frank Millar clutching the Team trophy.

Semi Auto Shotguns
As part of the beginners introduction to clay target shooting at Kibworth Gun Club, we introduce novices to the safe handling of the semi-auto shotgun. Many find the complications of loading and unloading confusing and prefer the break action over and under shotgun. However, some like the feel and handling of the semi-auto and perhaps the price of starter guns attracts their attention. Whatever the reason for buying a semi-auto the basic cleaning regime is often neglected and sometimes we have embarrassed owners turning up in the gun room with a shotgun and a bag of bits. The article below may be of interest and perhaps should be passed on to those who just give the Semi a quick wipe and pull through!
Something to Watch…….
Recently I came across a YouTube video where Jonny from the TGS channel met up with Ed Lyons. The video has some really good information within it.
