THE FIELD-FIRING MATCH
This Open Individual competition affords an opportunity for collectors and shooters of classic miniature-calibre rifles to air their proud possessions in an unusual and enjoyable way. The event provides a loose representation of field firing training using targetry based on snap, figure, landscape and tin-hat targets variously in use between the 1920s and post the Second World War.
The four practices are all timed, with those times set to present a reasonable challenge in sympathetic consideration of the many rifle types and ages that are eligible.
An image of the target used, with relevant notes, is shown below, and another giving scoring detail below that.
