Bisley 2016 Grand Prix Round 2

Bisley 2016 Grand Prix Round 2…

Bisley home of the National Shooting Centre Brookwood Surrey where all bores can be found shooting to a very high standard.
This was the setting for Grand Prix 2 of the British Field Target Associations summer national league was to be held.

This GP was certainly different to most other GP’s due to there being more activity around with shooters doing different disciplines with much bigger bangs!, at one point I’m sure somebody was using a cannon.? at least it sounded like it….

The Field Target course was set in the woods mainly with the exception of a couple of lanes being in the open and sun. The AM and Pm sessions both went very smoothly with maybe just one whistle In the morning session I believe, the wind was there at times but mostly light with enough to keep you on your toes. The course was mainly long but conditions where ok making it achievable for most shooter of all grades, a good course. This however didn’t stop great scores being put in again this GP2 with Andy Calpin 48, Simon Higgins 48 and Dorian Falconer 48 only dropping two shots for a three way shoot off.
