spoke to gardners today no announcements for Scotland so were good to go. They wont be stopping the gun clubs from shooting up there I don't think as long as social distancing happens.

we will be camping and meeting at his longtown gun club range and driving to the range on the mornings when everyone is ready .(ill sort address asap)

longtown has 100yrd zero he said we can use, clubhouse, somewhere flat for tents toilets n was facility. think he may have a shop too.

the 2k training range we are shooting at has a covered firing point so no need to worry about bad weather seen some pics today looks awesome.. has electronic impact targets installed too so hopefully they will be on.

hopefully it will all come together so get that reloading done.

Ok then, Thursday 17th night/afternoon a few of us will be meeting at the longtown ranges and camping. Anyone wishing to come friday 18th sat 18th morn will need to be there early because we will be travelling up in convoy to the new range so id say please be there for about 8am. I believe the road goes through the range so once shooting has started they wont be re opening the gates. 

Gardners have sent me an email statement to comply with scottish social distance rules n that which im sure will be part of the breif. 

They will be shooting details of 5 at a time to comply and face covering must be worn on the range. hand sanitizer will be supplied too. 

before and after the shoot is where the new rules come into force so will all have to social distance. blah blah blah

the address for the shop is 

Gardners Guns Ltd
Purdoms Crook
Sandysike Longtown
Carlisle
CA6 5ST
uk
 
THE RANGE IS COUPLE HUNDRED YARDS DOWN THE ROAD ON THE A7
 
IF ANYONE NEEDS MY MOBILE NUMBER PM ME.
 
OH AND GET RELOADING.

If anyone thinks they have symptoms then we would all, I'm sure, expect you to stay away. 

And if anyone needs a Hazmat suit with Powered air fed filter system let me know. 

Not cheap though  

I also have cleaning chems that will wipe out the Russian bio generator plants too, thats a bit expensive too.  

I'm coating all my bullets in it just in case anyone wants to touch them.
