Thanks for another usefull post.
I have put the website in my favourites for further reference as I see many useful links are given.
This article gives a very good insight into shooting practice in the UK in the 1850-60's and the evolvement of light weapons. It touches on the arrival of the MH into the services too.
I am aghast that a perfectly good riflerange could be converted into a golfcourse, .... what next !!.
