A4 size target at 300 yards with a 3 second exposure in windows or battlement on a simulated castle. Precision shooting at its best.
McQueen shooting (previously known as Sniper or Snaps shooting) is a most excellent challenge. To shoot this successfully you need Marksmanship skills, Good target Acquisition, Great breathing, Supreme focus and a little luck with the weather (unless you are really experienced like Jan). The McQueen is a true test of man, machine and the elements.
The target is the zsize of an A4 piece of paper with 5 scoring zones. The same target will appear 10 times in random locations on the castle, with 1 shot allowed per exposure. Each exposure will be for between 3 and 5 seconds, with between 10 and 20 seconds between exposures.
The knack is to have the scope zoomed out enough to see the whole castle so the target can be seen appearing from behind the castle. Its a lot if fun and with the relatively short exposures adds a different challenge to completely static target shooting.
The course is led by Jan Berry. A colourful lifetime in the armed forces led to a semi-retirement at Birmingham University Office Training Corps, where he led the shooting training before moving onto a career in armoury for films. This amazing man has travelled the world, see things and done things, achieved recognition in shooting and escaped more bullets than most have shot. Colourful, entertaining and informative classes are assured. He might even tell you how he won an award for training people so well that they took a prize from him.
This is a must-do course for anyone serious about their shooting and accuracy.
