Simon Carson

Simon started shooting in his last year at Campbell College, Belfast, and went to Bisley with the school that July. Since then he has improved very slowly. He joined Comber Rifle Club and has been attending Bisley regularly since. Although his main interest is fullbore target rifle he did go away from this for several years to concentrate on match rifle and now shoots both disciplines with a little smallbore in the winter. He has shot for Ireland in the Elcho, National and Mackinnon and won the Irish Open in 2010. He has toured with Ireland teams to Canada and South Africa.

Outside shooting he worked for a computer firm for 20 years in Human Resources and is now an independent HR Consultant specialising in Employee Relations. When not on the range he enjoys playing golf.
