loose federation of full bore service shooters who wish to shoot Enfield,
Martini or other military .22 rim fire training rifles under the auspices
of Military Rifle Clubs Association (MRCA) to fulfil the aim of actively
preserving the history by shooting events that approximate those
traditionally used in miniature rifle clubs and Defence Force branches
of British Commonwealth countries until recent times.
