An eight-strong team of Scottish athletes competed at the Grand Prix of Liberation in Pilsen, CZE, last week, with two further Scots in attendance as part of a team from British Shooting.

Saturday saw the last smallbore BUCS event of the season, and the Scottish Universities were well represented down at the Appleton range in Warrington. As has been the case for many years, the competition was superbly run by the host club and by the NSRA, with everyone enjoying the fantastic range, quick scoring, and excellent organisation. At the end of the day there was a huge amount of success for the Scottish clubs, something which really shows the strength of shooters north of the border and the value of the SSS competitions that the clubs shoot in year round, giving shooters that crucial competitive experience.
The majority of the High Performance Rifle Squad made the trip to the Isle of Man for the annual Easter Festival taking place over 14 – 16 April 2017. Registered as a British Shooting selection event for both 10m and 50m Rifle, the Air Rifle events were conducted on electronic targets for the first time with the assistance of STS, with Gavin Walker driving a van-load of our Megalink units over and running the range for the two days of the Air Rifle and Air Pistol events.
Scottish Target Shooting's Smallbore Rifle’s All Ranges competition was contested at Denwood, Aberdeen on Sunday 9th April. While this is a competitive event, it is intended to encourage the indoor shooter to try their hand at longer ranges outdoors.
