I’m pretty new to shooting, having had my shotgun certificate for a year now. I went beating on a local farm shoot last year and have shot some clays and been pigeon shooting with a friend a few times.
I was always told that the shooting world is difficult to get into, with people being quite cliquey, so I was just wondering what advice you could give to a person new to the sport. What are the best ways to get involved and get recognised as a responsible shooter?

Thanks for your letter, Matt. Getting a permission is not an easy task. It’s not that shooters are cliquey, but land is a scarce commodity. We will do some articles on this over the next few months, but it sounds as if you’re already doing the right things.
