The B Team outshoots the A

On Sunday 01 May 2011, 3 teams from the Sqn Shooting team competed in the London and Middlesex Rifle Association Cadet Service Shoot at the UK home of Target Rifle Shooting, Bisley Ranges.

Shot against 21 other teams from the Air, Army and Sea Cadets this is an excellent chance for the cadets to fire under competition conditions and put into practise their training from the previous shoots. The weather was much kinder than last year (with no hypothermia problems!) and the Sqn B Team came in a respectable 5th (and the highest placed ATC Team), and thrashed the Sqn A Team who fired a very good 500 yard practise but one which did not make up for a disastrous 300 shoot! However, shoots that don’t go well are all part of the training and learning process, and good training for Bisley in July.
