Hi 1066 thank you for the welcome, I’ve started prone .22 rifle and have had a go at LSR which was a mixture or kneeling and standing. I’d like to try others in the future it’s been a great experience so far and I’ve met some really nice people.
Hi, I start with prone and move to LSR too
not like I dont like prone, but a left hand shooter in jacket and sling with a right hand bolt just feel like torture all the time lol

Thanks for the info
I am using club rifle atm, it is more than just the bolt
The ejector is on the right, making reloading the single shot very awkward.
Most importantly I came from IPSC pistol background and very tempted to try practical rifle :p

definitely go for that, its fun

might be worth prodding your club to buy in a left handed rifle for you, or buy one for them and if you get your FAC the club can give it to you. much better than suffering something that doesn't fit you

theres lots of disciplines out there, but sometimes its just enjoyable getting a pistol out and dumping a few mags of 9mm into a target.

Hi welcome.
What does LSR stand for. Reading the posts it sounds like a practical rifle type of shooting.
I googled it it came up as life saving rules.
