Disabled Shooters Group
Kibworth Gun Club hosted the 25th Anniversary Disabled Shooters Group Open Registered Shoot.
Well done to Craig Williams for his Amazing score of 88/100 taking High Gun in Disabled Standing and DSG overall High Gun. Adrian Last received his award for 25 years of outstanding service as well as taking High Gun for Disabled Sitting.
In the Open competition Olly Bradshaw scored a credible 98/100 for overall High Gun, beating Ben Husthwaite into 2ndon 97.
Our member, Paul Rendall, who has been involved for many years with this group, presented the prizes.
This group of shooters require a complex coaching regime to meet their individual needs. Perhaps those coaches who have worked with members of this group and other disabled shooters might share their experiences and techniques with members of the Institute.
World Gunmakers Evening – The Tower of London
This event, a showcase for the gunmakers from across Europe, is taking place on 3rd November 2021 at the Tower of London.
This event which features such manufacturers as ASI, Atkin Grant & Lang, Beretta, Purdy, John Rigby, Browning, Boss, Edgar Brothers, EJ Churchill, Holland & Holland, William Powel and Longthornes, among others is for one night only.
“For guests the evening begins with a personal welcome at the private entrance to the Tower of London. A Beefeater will escort you to the Armoury where you will be greeted with a glass of champagne to begin this unique experience. Throughout the evening a specially curated selection of game based canapés will be served and drinks will be flowing.”
