Grayson. The future of shooting lies


with our juniors. Let us help and encourage them and where possible publicise their achievements. Together with Jake Healey, Scott Grayson is one of our brightest prospects in the world of rimfire and air- rifle benchrest. If you know a promising junior shooter then please tell us about it or, as Scott did – get them to write their own profile.


My name is Scott Grayson and I have been shooting Rimfire and Air Rifle Benchrest for approximately three years. I am part of the United Kingdom Rimfire and Air Rifle Benchrest Shooting Team. In my short career I have competed in three national and two international events.

Profile – Scott Grayson. Rimfire and Air Rifle Benchrest


My shooting career started in Buxted Rifle and Pistol Club, which is my local club. This is where I met the shooters who helped my shooting career to flourish, developing great friendships along the way. I initially started by shooting Hunter Field Target – HFT - at national level and then a couple of World Championships alongside my brother Craig. I shot benchrest targets for a bit of fun and to see how accurate I was, thus initiating me into the world of air rifle benchrest shooting.


Gary Kingaby, Graham Freeman and my father Alan Grayson, also fellow United Kingdom team-mates, paved the way for my journey into Air Rifle Benchrest, initially putting me into the postal leagues and allowing me the practice time I needed on the range. I used to really enjoy shooting the postal matches - my first competition with shooters from other countries which made my ambitions of shooting against them ‘shoulder to shoulder’ even stronger.


My first national competition at Portishead in 2009 was where my ambitions and desires were first pieced together after learning that there were United Kingdom Team shooters in the competition and the England Captain was there. I wanted to show them I could ‘do it’ and that was exactly what I did, taking 1st junior in the air rifle. I was still oblivious to the art of rimfire at that time.


It was fantastic for me, as I had become a national champion in front of the England Captain Carl Boswell who congratulated me on my performance and hopefully, now that he saw my victory, he may acknowledge that and offer me a place on the national squad.
