A Weekend Of Shooting

On March 14th and 15th several Cadets from 148 (Barnsley) took part in a weekend of shooting.

We were joined by Cadets from 23 (South Elmsall) Sqn, 2388 (Castleford) Sqn and 2446 (Knottingley) Sqn. On the first day we were all trained and did the weapons handling training and then the test which everybody passed and then we had a chance to shoot with the Scorpion air rifle.

The rifle team for the Squadron was picked and on Sunday we had a chance to enter the wing postal air rifle competition

Flt Lt Harrison, the squadron shooting officer said “The whole team were fantastic, going from no experience of shooting, right through to being fully trained to safely handle the air rifle and then to shoot in the competition. I look forward to the results and hopefully bringing back the trophy to the squadron”
