I don't know where I finished yet.

Vintage breech loader was OK - only the third time out with it at 900 yards. I was shooting a Deeley-Edge-Metford; this is an original action that has had a new stock and Metford barrel fitted. The lock is dated 1878 but is to the 1873 patent. It is chambered for the .45-2.6 cartridge. I scored 49, two points behind the person I shot with who was using a Browning Hi-Wall in the same calibre.

Muzzle loading match was a struggle with good hits (nine shots in the black) but some inexplicable misses which hammered score. Still it was a good day out in the sunshine doing what I enjoy!

I have decided that I will try and make it over for the 2009 Meeting and it looks as though one of my friends from the club will also want to come. I have had an e.mail from Roger Speak, Firearms Liaison Officer, NRA with details of the Visitors permit and the 2008 fees so that is a start. If anyone can furnish me with any more details I would be much obliged.

Permits are pretty easy to get, you will need a European firearms pass and that soon may overule the firearms permit as it is unconstitutional under EU law. If I am around drop me a line and I can organise some pheasant shooting and roe and fallow stalking!

I updated this to post the pics direct instead of the Photobucket links that don't work now.

Good to see the photos again. Thanks for taking the time. Sad to see the old posts from guys who no longer visit the site from years before.
