GO MRS WAIN!
SIMON REED How refreshing to see Gary Wain’s wife, Marianne, shooting what Gary calls her ‘well-loved BSA Ultra SE’ in November’s issue. I’ve always thought that we should promote the ‘equal opportunities’ aspect of airgun shooting more than we do, because there’s no reason whatsoever why women, children, senior citizens and the disabled can’t get as much out of our sport as we men do.
My partner, Helen, was as close to being anti-airgun as makes no difference, but after a few target shooting sessions in the back garden, she’s a genuine enthusiast, not to mention a scarily good shot.
Well done Gary, and well done the lovely Mrs Wain.
