It’s all a bit of fun… Till you hear the BEEP!
Team Red Flag was conceived in 2016 by a small group of like-minded experienced shooters from North Mercia Pistol & Rifle Club, with a passion to develop skills dedicated towards safe Practical Shooting.
The competitors of Team Red Flag are members of UKPSA which allows us to shoot, practise and compete in formally recognised competitions. We specialise in training and competing in more ‘practical’ disciplines with a wide range of firearms including .22 Semi-Automatic Rifle, Long Barrel Pistol and Revolver, Section 1 Shotguns and Underlevers.
In 2017 we competed in the UKPSA National Postal Competitions, determined to improve upon the previous year. We are delighted to report we picked up a SILVER in MiniRifle OPEN out of 126 shooters, 18 teams nationwide. We also competed for the first time in SLUG Target Shotgun and picked up another SILVER.
Before that, the Team had competed in 2016/17 in the UKPSA 100 Winter League. This resulted in success with an improved 3rd place in Mini-Rifle Open from 4th in 2016, as well as a 3rd place in Birdshot Shotgun. We also achieved a 1st place Team finish in Long Barrelled Pistol Standard. Read the full story here.
Previously in 2016, Team Red Flag competed for the first time in the UKPSA Mini-Rifle Open League and came 4th in the country out of 14 other clubs from around the UK. Indeed, two Team Red Flag members were placed within the top 10 of total shooters who competed in this category out of a field of > 80 shooters nationally.

In 2018, Team Red Flag competed again in UKPSA Summer League – this year sporting the GSG FireFly for LBP Standard Division.
Delighted to confirm the Team secured Gold, along with Ed ‘Senior’ securing a 1st Place as an individual.
As part of our training and development we will be practising previous UKPSA courses of fire, and also combining with our own interpretations, including 2-3 and even 4 gun mixed competitions and practise sessions.
These will include disciplines utilising Practical Shotgun, Target Shotgun, Mini-Rifle, LBP/R and UL rifle.
