Junior Members shoot

On the morning of Saturday 17th February we held the HBSA’s inaugural junior members shoot on Cheylesmore range, with the youngsters shooting .22RF rifles.

The promulgator of this junior initiative is David Franklin Johnson, strongly supported by Maurice Kanareck. At the shoot they were joined by John Beirne and his son.

We need to see young people coming into the sport and if they do it through HBSA, and in contact with historic arms, so much the better. Thanks to David for starting this.

Maurice was heard to quote “In the words of Lord Reith, founder Director General of the BBC, “our youngsters we would wish to inform, educate and entertain” and indeed they were!
