The side-by-side exclusive shoots, like the Southern and the Vintagers' always attract a particular crowd and have a vibe that is quite different from the usual competitions.

I have run shoots (driven pheasant) in the UK for a little group of hammer gun shooters for a number of years and this year we are taking a small group of hammer gun shooters only to Africa for a bird safari.

It makes a change to be shooting with like minded people at a different pace. I like the shared interest and the similar approach to the shooting. In the same way, I have friends who shoot muzzle loaders on driven pheasant days (two Guns to a peg). This also works well and is a bit out of the ordinary.

I'd be interested to know if similar groups operate in other countries and for other shooting contexts. Anyone have any interesting experiences to share?

Myself and another fellow started a sbs club in Houston about 7 years ago. We have about 30 members. We do some local shoots each year and go on a few out of town shoots. We also have been able to go to some exclusinve clubs.

We have a very nice yearly shoot in Oct. and a dinner and prizes afterwards

It is at Capitol Gun Club and the cost is $60 for 160 birds. Send me a note and I will send you the flyer.
