[quote=“VinceGreen”]There has been huge friction between the Olympic Commitee and the (British) NRA who run international shooting in Britain. As far as I am aware no NRA official has been involved or has even been asked at any stage to help. They built temporary facilities rather than use the Olympic standard facilities at Bisley 30 miles from london and only a stones throw from where the rowing was held.
By rights I should have been in my blazer this past week helping out. I would have thought TonyE would have been the same.
As for the story about the .22 ammo I simply don’t believe it. These shooters are sponsored by ammo companies big time. Its a nice tale but old ammo is old ammo and the cold war is over. These guys are in it for the sponsorship[/quote]There’s a general consensus among a number of users at Bisley that the £30 mill offer to the LOCOG wouldn’t have been enough to put Bisley in working order for an Olympic event. Besides, I don’t for a moment believe Coe et al would have gone through with a Bisley based project. And the regular users of Bisley (I am one myself, last weekend latest, at Century) would have been shut out for security reasons.
