So first off I’d like to say “wow” it’s so hard to get into shooting without a healthy budget or some acquaintances in the shooting world. But...I am slowly clawing my way into the sport with the help of you lot on forums and Facebook groups!
What I’ve achieved so far,
Small first aid kit, check
Shooting business cards made up and being posted, check
Permission sheets designed and printed off, check
Poles, nets and decoys, check
SGC and Shotgun, check
FAC and Deer legal calibre rifle, check
Lots of green clothing, flat cap, boots and some farmer type shirts, check
BASC member for insurance, check
Active member of a local 500yrd rifle club, check
Paid stalks booked in for later on in the year with estate rifle, check
Oh…looking at the list above, I realise I’m actually not doing too bad!
Permissions to shoot on…….Ha Ha Comical!
Join the British Deer society? Please advise!
Some kind of health and safety training? Please advise!
DSC1 Course, will be booking shortly with a local chap.
When I’ve saved up some money, find a syndicate and shoot stuff!
Later down the line, think about trying for my DSC2.
Have I missed anything? Can you suggest anything I haven’t thought of?
