Found where my local club is - and when they meet.
I already own a stout pair of boots, outdoor jacket and trousers, and the - apparently mandatory - silly hat.

Is there anything else I should do or get before I go along?

Sling? Cushion? Karrimat? - Insurance? - Membership of some governing body? - L plates?

For Ft a large cushion type seat is best.

Hft are a lazy lot and lie down all the time Mats are order of the day in that case, unless you like Mud?

Sense of humour comes in handy

Above all else, go along and enjoy. admire the very expensive guns + scopes, but dont be put off.
We get new shooters come to us and instantly think they "have" to have the expensive kit. I usually try and disprove this by taking their gun and hitting the same stuff i am with my gun.
