Looking at this month’s magazine, you wouldn’t think we were without pistols in not so GreatBritain! Clearly, the sport is thriving in Northern Ireland and of course, residents of the Isle of Man are still trusted to own and shoot pistols.Members of the UKPSA manage to take part in overseas pistol events, whilst we on the UKmainland are stuck with our strange long-barrel pistols and muzzle loaders, though we do havenews of an exciting development from pistol stalwart, Alan Westlake.
What really has been achieved by this ban?
Last month I visited the London Prepares ISSF World Cup at the new Olympic facility nearthe Woolwich Barracks. I witnessed pistol shooters enjoying their sport from many countriesincluding Oman, Russia, China, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Mongolia, Vietnam, Korea, Ukraine,Indonesia, Thailand, Brazil, Bahrain, Kasakhstan, Qatar, Hong Kong, Belarus, Iran, Serbia, Turkey,Bolivia and most countries of Europe.My question is: How come the governments of all these nations have managed to nurture apopulation who can be trusted with rearms when the British Government cannot? Would anyBritish MP care to explain?On a brighter note – I tried a new shooting discipline this month – Practical Shotgun. After‘dipping my toe in the water’ last month, I took the plunge, dusted o the old Remmy  andentered my rst competition. I was way out of my Benchrest/F Class comfort zone and yes, Idolloped mightily but still enjoyed it immensely! Clanging those steels with a kicking semi-autowas great fun – give it a go sometime!
