I’m typing this on the night of the
London 2012 Olympics
opening ceremony. Yes, I’m lookingforward to the Games but, for me and many British shooters, it is something of a bitter pill to swallow.That great Olympic sport of pistol shooting is of course denied to us – yet shooters from one-hundredplus competing nations are free to enjoy pistol shooting in our capital city.The other ‘bitter pill’ is that of legacy. For shooters, there is none! How can that be? Legacy is amajor part of the Olympic Charter yet LOCOG (London Organising Committee of the Olympic Games)has simply ignored any legacy for shooting. We get nothing! After the Games, the temporary ranges
will be dismantled and the site will revert to a green eld.
That said, we at Target Shooter wish all Olympic shooting competitors an enjoyable and successful
games and especially our GB rie shooters – considering the oppression under which shooting takes
place in Great Britain, they thoroughly deserve it!Finally – the Target Shooter app! Twelve months or so ago, we decided that the modern way to readan on-line magazine like Target Shooter was via an Apple app. The app was a great – and expensive- learning curve, which faltered abruptly a couple of issues ago! From our loyal app subscribers, we
naturally had a urry of e-mails….. “I’m a subscriber – what’s happened to the app?”
Well there is good news, the app is being rewritten and the magazine is moving over onto Apple’sNewsstand. We hope that this month will see the migration to the new app. Existing subscribers and
readers of the magazine will automatically be notied and their subscriptions and purchases will move
over.Thank you all for your support – it is much appreciated.
