    The Trafalgar Meeting 2017 (National Shooting Centre (NSC), Bisley)
     

    This Meeting is full of character, with competitors seen entering into the spirit of the event and some wearing appropriate clothing for the firearms used at the time.  

    The guns being used attract attention especially when, what is basically a museum piece, can be seen in full operational glory.  This offers the pleasurable opportunity to use, view and handle historical, classic and vintage arms.  Museums and private collectors do preserve our heritage firearms, however practical use by shooters with knowledge of these guns adds another dimension.  These firearms being shot across the ranges is a reminder of the history of their development, from flint muzzle-loader or matchlock, to breech-loading nitro cartridge firearms.   

    There is also something for the collector at the Arms Fair over the weekend - a good opportunity to search for those hard-to-find pieces of kit as well as to discover new items for a collection.

    Details to follow.
