Hello from across the UK

Post by BobSki on Wed Jun 27, 2012 2:50 pm


Hello all,
My name is Robert (Bob) Skidmore and I am an Englishman, living in Northamptonshire (Central England). I'm 55yrs old and retired from the Police service. I have had an interest in shooting since I was 12yrs old. Most of my shooting has been air rifles in target competitions but I also shoot 12 guage shotguns (clay pigeon) and small bore (.22LR) rifles.

I have always had a glint in my eye for the larger bore rifles and I have now purchased a reloading kit for .357mag, .38spl and .44spl cartridges. I have ordered my first rifle and I chose the .357mag Rossi 92, in Stainless Steel with the 24" Octagon barrel. I went for the 24" as my main use for the rifle will be target shooting at various distances out to 100yds or so. I am eagerly awaiting delivery of my new toy and in the mean time I am learning how to reload cartridges for it.

My other hobby is private pilot and my friend and I fly our small plane out of his 10 acre back garden. I don't do too much of that these days and shooting is once again taking the number one slot i my life.

Anyhow, before I bore you all to death, I'll sign off for now and continue reading these forums so I'll know a bit more about my rifle when I get it.

Clear sights every one
Bob
