Derby Rifle and Pistol Club 1999

 

 

Welcome to www.drpc1999.com

We have our own complex near Twyford, south of Derby In the East Midlands. An excellent facility with 25m, 50m and 185yd ranges, Clubroom with lounge, kitchen and toilets. Members mainly shoot Ruger 10/22, Gallery rifles, sporting and F class rifles, travelling to Open events to compete. Recently there has been renewed interest in shooting with muzzle loading black powder pistols, revolvers and rifles.

Please have a look around our website and if you like what you see feel free to contact us.

The Home Countries International

match was shot on the Friday afternoon of the Derby Open, 24th June.

This was the third occasion that England, Scotland and Wales had fielded teams and the third time that Wales have crushed all before them. Congratulations.

The match was T&P1 and Multi-Target small-bore and  T&P1 and Multi-Target Centre-fire with teams of five in each event with the best four scores to count. This was not enough for the England team who had three shooters suffering from malfunctions in the small-bore event and not getting all their shots away.

There was some consolation for the England team as they won the Long Barrelled Pistol and Long Barrelled Revolver match that was shot concurrently with the individual events during the weekend. Well done to Scotland who came a close second.

The sun stayed out, except for one unfortunate detail that got wet, and the range looked great with the flags out. It started on time and was well run by CRO Rob Hufton and his efficient team of ROs, many thanks go to them.

Plenty of photos can be seen HERE and details of the scores HERE
