Shooting aid

Shooting aidThis keen rifle shooter has Kennedy’s disease and now uses a wheelchair. He wanted to continue with his hobby but from a position sitting in his wheelchair.

A rifle rest was built on to the end of a folding arm that could be fitted in place of wheelchair left armrest. A lever lifted the rest off the ground whilst the shooter positions the wheelchair. A piece of plastic guttering was fitted to the right armrest to safely stow the rifle when not in use. Not only has this man been able to follow his hobby but has put in some good performances in local competitions using the device.

    I am looking for some advice for a friend who has muscular dystrophy and is trying to find out if there is any type/kind of equipment that is available for him to do Air Rifle shooting at our cadet unit, he is in a wheelchair and struggles to hold and shoot a .177 air rifle. Any advice would be extremley welcomed.
    Many thanks
