An informative film about the sport of shooting in all its forms, produced by the Shooting Sports Trust and presented by Mike Yardley.
Many people have a distorted view of shooting from having seen firearms misuse in the news and popular entertainment. This production tries to put the record straight and shows shooting as it really is. More than a million ordinary, law abiding, and completely normal people in the UK use firearms for sport or their work.
