Welcome to November’s Gun Room and hopefully you are enjoying either the sporting season or the facilities of your local gun club.

We are well into the winter season now even if it is still technically autumn. The indoor venues come into their own and there is quite a busy programme of events in the county (and elsewhere) throughout the winter.

There will never be a replacement for Olympia but what are the chances of a New Year spectacular here in our county? I can just picture a marvellous event with a New Year’s Day Strauss concert to play between equestrian attractions and competitions. Anyone interested?
