The NRA Handgun League

NRA Handgun LeagueSunday 12th April saw the launch of the NRA Handgun League at Shield Shooting Centre in Dorset.

The League got off to a super start on Sunday with yet another great practical match from Steve Pike at Shield Shooting Centre, total match entries were over 60 with the pistol shooters making up a healthy proportion of them.

As with the NRA Shotgun League Edgar Brothers have very generously agreed to sponsor it to encourage participation and support grass roots shooting, by donating a number of the GSG 1911 .22 pistols which they have recently started to import .

These great little handguns make superb entry level equipment and can be modified and upgraded using the host of aftermarket parts available for the 1911. Red dots are the main upgrade and Neil Brooklyn utilised his to great effect to win the Open class pistol division where the speed and target acquisition benefits of these sights were brought to the fore by a host of moving or distant targets. Shot over 9 great stages and requiring approximately 180 rounds there were stages to challenge every aspect of shooting ability from outright speed to precision. The next match will be at the Phoenix Meeting on 24th May and there will be classes to suit all manner of LBP and LBR.

Entry forms are available from shooting division or the NRA website.

Remember all entrants will be eligible for the free prize draw so come along and have fun as well as the opportunity to win!
