OK.

Now.... I have two AR's. Both are configured for shooting with a scope, although I do have a detatchable rear carry handle sight and forend sights that have not been fitted. which makes open sight shooting a no-no at this stage, so I'll have use a scope (I have an ACOG which I suppose would be the closes to open sight I can get)

Problem is, If I can get down to the shoot, will I be able to participate and find out more about Highpower? I've mainly shot Practical/CSR so I am a Highpower virgin.

Since there is bugger all Highpower rifle shot up north I have to admit I'm pretty clueless about what it involves.


Anyone got any advice....?
Link Posted: 7/28/2008 12:19:54 PM EST
Come along and find out, we have a class for scoped rifles although an ACOG is not the best choice as it's a combat optic not a precision scope. All you need is 110 rounds, you'll get a good zero if nothing else as all the shots are marked back with spotting discs.

Can't....you don't have gravy in any of your chippys

Life without fish, chips and gravy is simply unthinkable. And the beer is cold, weak and expensive down there. £1.35 a pint up here.


Besides, on my wages I can barely afford the diesel to come down and visit, let alone buy an 'ouse.

What little money I have belongs to streetfighter....he keeps sending bits of AR's that I didn't know I needed.
