“Why shoot?”

Printer-friendly version

Well, for lots of reasons, namely:

  • It’s good fun.
  • It’s something everybody can do, even unfit, old or disabled.
  • You can compete, or do it just for fun.
  • You can do it all year round.
  • It’s an amateur sport, thankfully not full of professional prima donnas.
  • You do not have to spend a fortune to enjoy yourself, (but you can if you want to).
  • It’s a fascinating, enjoyable hobby.
  • It’s a reason to get out and about in the countryside: Bisley on a fine summer day is a glorious place, as are the clay shoots.

Without exception, your fellow shooters are some of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. Even though you might be competing, they will always help, share their knowledge and share their experience with you.
