Altrincham Rifle and Pistol Club have recently aquired shooting kit for the visually impaired. Partfunded by friends at Knutsford service station!!
What is shooting kit for the visualy impaired
The kit uses sensors on the rifle with an audible tone that tells the wearer how close to the centre they are aiming. The higher the tone, the nearer the bull!
The kit was bought after a session was ran with the VIBees, a local group for the visually impaired, with borrowed equipment. It was so well received we had to get our own, it's expensive so we hjust have the one at the moment. To the left club member Ian tests the set up.
