We need to talk about shooting

How do you feel when talking to members of your family, friends or even complete strangers about shooting when they are ‘on the fence’ about the issue?

We all know that a lot of people’s opinions about shooting are based on misconception. It’s only by meeting people in the shooting community and actually visiting shoots that most of these can be swept away, but for a lot of people, the countryside isn’t exactly on their doorstep so they will only be able to draw on stereotypes.

So how do we bridge the gap between those who shoot and those who don’t. If you have a particular approach to educating non-shooting folk when the sport comes into the conversation, please let us know.
