Practical Shotgun and 3 Gun


We are now running a Practical competition about once a month. These competitions involve shooting a range of steel and cardboard targets from various positions. There are no set competitions, the coarse of fire is adjusted to suit the venue and depends on available targetry, number of competitors and safe shooting angles.

Practical Shotgun

PSG uses either a Section 1 shotgun or a section 2 three shot pump or semi auto shotgun. Typically, there are 20 – 30 targets per round so a section 1 shotgun does give a distinct advantage. Due to current demand we are prioritising for section 1 shotguns.

Each competition day starts with a safety brief and demonstration of correct and safe loading, moving and unload and show clear procedures. Each competitor is under the direct supervision of the RCO throughout a shoot who also times and adjudicates and their decision on penalties is final! Only one person shoots at a time and maybe stopped at any time if a safety violation is observed.

Each stage is described by the RCO including any restriction on angles of fire. Competitors then have up to 5 minutes to walk the stage and plan their shoot. The RCO will state the ready conditions which are either:

Option 1: Gun fully loaded with a round in the chamber and safety applied
Option 2: Magazine loaded, empty chamber and safety off
Option 3: Gun empty and safety off

Additionally, the RCO will state whether the gun is held ready, strong hand and parallel to the ground at waist height, trail position weak or strong hand, muzzle down in a container or in a rack (Option 3 only). For Option 1 start condition the safety must remain on until the gun is in the shooters shoulder.

All ammunition required for the stage must be carried by the shooter so they must ensure they have suitable ammunition belts, caddies or pouches. Magazines need specific pouches to ensure they are secure during movement.

Practise in reloading is key to getting a fast time in PSG so we would recommend getting some dummy loads made up for safe practise!

If you are interested in trying PSG then talk to Ian or Chris. We have 8 spaces per half day shoot (10 shooters max including 2 RCOs).
In accordance with current UK Firearms Legislation, a section 1 shotgun cannot be loaned even if you have a valid slot on your FAC.
So anyone who attends without a section 1 shotgun will be taught with their own section 2 semi-auto or pump action shotgun. This may change with future legislation and we will adapt accordingly.

3 Gun Competitions

This is an extension of practical shotgun but also uses any UK legal .22lr semi-auto pistol and rifle. Both the pistol and rifle must use at least 10 round magazines. Typically, a stage uses 10 .22lr rounds for pistol, up to 20 .22lr rounds for rifle and up to 20 rounds of shot-shell. It is recommended that a shooter has at least 4 x 10 round pistol magazines and 2 x 20 round rifle magazines. A section 1 semi-auto shotgun should hold a minimum of 9 rounds in the magazine. A box fed section 1 shotgun should use 10 round magazines.

As for PSG, the stages are made up of various steel and cardboard targets and all ammunition must be carried by the shooter. The RCO will describe and demonstrate how the various guns will be loaded (Option 1 – 3) and how they will be stored for each stage. Typically, the pistol is used first and is made ready in Option 1 and held in a quick release belt holster. The rifle and shotgun are loaded and placed in either bins, muzzle down or flat on tables or mats. The RCO will also describe how and in what condition the firearms will be placed to make safe when moving from one section to another.

Dress Code: When shooting at Barbury please respect the dress code of no vest tops, all T-Shirts should have sleeves. If you attend a UKPSA competition then arms and legs must be covered and no military style clothing is allowed unless you are active service personnel in which case current issue DPM is allowed. Recommended to check any specific venue or competition restrictions. Safety glasses and ear protection are mandatory.

Fees: We collect £10 per shooter that goes towards replacing targets, there is also a fee payable to Barbury Shooting School for the use of shooting ground which is around £7.50 per shooter.
