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 rie 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 notied and their subscriptions and purchases will move
over.Thank you all for your support – it is much appreciated.

THE HANDLOADING BENCH: POWDER UPDATE- Pt 1 by Laurie Holland.
I plan to spend an issueor three on propellant developments, notably recentbudget TR140 and Elcho 17 introductions; look at long-established Vihtavuori N150, which I increasingly see asa ‘powder or all seasons’; cover a not too well known butcomprehensive range o European manuactured powdersthat has just received a couple o potentially useuladditions. The last mentioned has actually been aroundor many years but, recent name and nomenclaturechanges haven’t helped increase what was already a ratherlow prole.

Historic Arms - The 5.5mm Velo Dog.
“Dad, what is a Velo Dog cartridge, is it the one that Sherlock Holmesshot the Hound o the Baskervilles with?”“ No”, my long suering ather replied, “That would have probably been a 44 Webley Bulldog.” - which is a ar more appropriate cartridgeor that job, in more ways than one!

 We were back at Diggle or the secondo the season’s three visits to this venuebut, unlike April’s short-range shoot, this was an entirely long-range meeting andencompassed some signicant and in my view, benecial changes rom previousLeague rounds held at Diggle.
Shooting the McQueen - By Chris Parkin.
 When I am asked what is my avouritetarget shoot, my response is usually a quick one-word answer - McQueen. But whatis the McQueen? History- The McQueencompetition has an interesting history whichI came upon by chance when reading aninteresting sniper treatise, simply entitled‘Sniping in France’ by one Major HeskethPritchard, which documents the eventualadoption o sniping by the British Army in World War 1.
