Shooting Gazette July 2014

What were you doing way back in 1989 – not yet born, still in your school uniform, about to start that dream job in the City or even on the verge of escaping the rat race altogether? Shooting Gazette celebrates its 25th anniversary this month, and how the time has flown.
