Resurrecting this following the change in the ACTO last week, to move the standard from firing the Small Bore/Air Rifle to have reached marksman standard.
Is this the end of accessible Full Bore Shooting, especially while we are without a Service Small Bore Rifle, & Air Rifles are reliant on being privately purchased by squadrons?
It's going to take some time to get a number of cadets to this standard on a standard 4/6 lane short range. Especially when we also need to roll out training on the rifle to cadets & staff.
Certainly interesting times in the shooting area, with considerable change coming our way, hopefully people will stick it through and deliver the required training to keep cadets shooting.
