I think we first experienced Sillys around about 1990 after Andy Calpin and a few others had shot them on a trip to the states. The NEFTA Classic was the first competitive event to really feature them although I remember shooting them at the Internationals held at North Staffs around that time too.

I'm not sure who is in that picture but the rifle may have been specifically set up for sillys or maybe they thought it just looked good
