Our first episode with Callum from English Shooting covered the intricacies of the laws and regulations that govern firearm and shotgun ownership in the United Kingdom. But in this episode, we discuss the growing sport of Practical Shooting. Essentially based on Three Gun, or Two Gun in the United States, the sport is appealing to British shooters for a number of reasons, one of which is that it offers a diverse and changing environment for shooters to compete in, unlike anything that has been available before.
Apart from the pistol rifle, and the restrictions on semi-auto centerfire rifles, the equipment and firearms are virtually identical to what American shooters would be used to in competing through the various action match sports we have available to us today. Although the British shooters are much more limited than their U.S. counterparts are, they have still managed to build up a passionate community that is devoted to safety, accuracy, and passing on the sport of competitive shooting.
