Just a quick advanced warning to you all that Hilsea range will be closed for the day on October 14th 2017 due to the range officer for the day, me, (Simon Fox) will be getting married.  I floated the idea to my fiancée that maybe I could nip out for the 1300-1600 shoot to run the range but wasn't greeted with a good and positive response to this suggestion.  Looks like I will have to duck out of this one people as having just payed out for a wedding, I can't yet afford the divorce that would follow if I popped to the range for the day.
