About Me

Hello all,

Well, I’m an “old git” at 55yrs of age and fully retired from work. I have been a firearms shooter in one discipline or another for most of my life, starting with air rifles when I was 13yrs of age in the 6yd and 10m target shooting leagues and achieved county level. As the years passed and shift work entered my life, Team sports became difficult as I couldn’t commit to being at all the fixtures. This meant that my shooting became less competitive but continued just for fun, with my shooting small bore rifles and also 12 guage shotguns neither shot competitively though.

During the course of last year I had my first “play” with a recurve bow, only shooting at a distance of 20 yards or so and only on 3 or 4 occasions during the year. This was the first time I had shot a bow and arrow since I was about 10yrs old playing cowboys and Indians in my back garden, however, I enjoyed it immensely.

During the last week, I have been totally transfixed on the Olympics, watching every single arrow that has been shot in both team and individual events. I have decided that it is time I took my interest further so at the next opportunity I will visit my local Archery club which is Long Buckby, Northamptonshire to sign up for the beginner’s course.

About Me

I started shooting at Daventry in October 2010.  I did not manage to shoot during the summer but have been practicing at home too.  I have certainly improved but maybe I need to investigate investing in a new bow as it seems my limbs are twisted (on the bow not my arms).

My bow is made by Border Archery and it had sat in the loft for at least 14 years and is probably some 30 years old, but I like the style.  I bought it when I worked up near Berwick upon Tweed.  So I have probably not been doing archery for some 20 years.

The LB crew are a friendly bunch and I enjoy shooting with them.  I would like to develop my skills and start to shoot outside as well this year.  I would also like to pick up some maintenance skills.

I am a keen motorcyclist (Moto Guzzi) and go walking in Scotland once a year bagging some Monros (I only go for the walk not numbers) and teach yoga.

I started with a recurve bow for the first year and then changed to a compound bow. I have now been shooting a compound for four years. I currently use a Merlin Excalibur 40.
