The George Pragnell IWC Top Gun Challenge

Honesberie Shooting School is thrilled to be launching an exciting new shooting competition, to commence on ‘The Glorious Twelfth’.

The George Pragnell IWC Top Gun Challenge will provide entrants with the fantastic opportunity to win a highly coveted IWC Top Gun watch, worth £9,450. The competition is open to all shooters, although the main aim is to encourage game shooters to get their eye in as the season begins and then help them to improve their performance.

Other top prizes include: a custom made suit by Clements & Church and driving experiences from Land Rover.

The George Pragnell IWC Top Gun Challenge will run in weekly heats from 12th August 2017 until 10th March 2018, with a grand final on Thursday 15th March 2018 when the winner will walk away with a beautiful IWC Top Gun watch.

Each round will consist of shooting 76 sporting clays over nine stands followed by the George Pragnell IWC Top Gun Challenge which will consist of 12 high tower birds and 12 grouse birds.

The top two competitors from each week will qualify for the final on 15th March 2018 when they’ll have the chance to walk away with one of the exclusive prizes.

Entries will cost £75 per competitor which will include clays and cartridges and £65 if they choose to re-enter on the same day.
