I think we can all agree that shooting is a key military skill. Central to this skill is the ability to coach others so that they can be effective shots.

The youtube link below shows a 7 Rifles range day with some expert coaching, particularly at the 1min 50sec point.

******* stroker!

Had to laugh the stroker you refer to is quite senior without compromising persec bb may have something more constructive to add
Great, he is therefore a "quite senior" stroker who should either know better or stay away from things he is obviously not competant at. Still, all good comedy value for the blokes I suppose.

Not sure I would want a video clip of me being a total pillock being used on a unit media puff-piece though!

Given that I know the person concerned and he knows me, can I just add that the Livery Companies are actually very good friends of 7 Rifles ( and no doubt other units with a footprint in London. )

They contribute in financial as well as moral support, for example, inviting Riflemen to ( get smashed at ) Livery Dinners.

hope nobody noticed my subject change...

Brilliant stuff! Well done 7 Rifles. What a crying shame that other units don't/ can't/ won't do this sort of thing. They used to go on in the past on families days as well as 'chumming up to the money' days etc in the past and were, I believe, a great success on a number of levels.

Ha ha! It sure is! That's what you get letting Company OCs do range safety for a PR day.

On another point, anyone else clock the CO's opening bit about providing 50 bods this year, 50 next year and the same again the year after that? What do you reckon Bravo Bravo, is that enough to get us out of providing DS to RTCs using the MI formula?

... are you actually allowed to let civvies shoot pistol?

I thought this was a no no!

Good bit of p.r. for the Bn. Not such good p.r. for the professionalism of s.a.a. Doh !

Good effort by 7 RIFLES, though if you look carefully, you can see a soldier with a twisted bootlace at 3.07.

Not to my knowledge, we had a fathers' day thing where they fired pistols and a wifeys thing. Few years ago for oth mind. But as long as the safety is there you can let them fire pretty much every thing.

I thought the Sh1t & Shovel Brigade had come out with a directive that effectively banned this (unless they were doing it of course..)

..at the same time as they introduced rules that allowed only SASC to run foreign weapon shoots as I recall.

I was of the understanding that it was automatic weapon that were the problem and not just Pistols and due to firearms regulation you could not handle them. I am sure some one with an in depth knowledge of fire arms regulation will correct me.

Other saa instructors can run foreign weapon shoots as long as they have done the foreign weapons course
