Dave Cushman died on 22nd February 2011 and shortly before he died he asked me to take over his websites. I later learnt he bequeathed them to me. I am a beekeeper and we discussed the future of the beekeeping website with Dave telling me I could develop it how I wished. He specifically asked that all non-beekeeping websites and pages stay exactly as they are and I promised I would maintain them as long as I could. I understand his reasons and will respect them, so I am unable to accept any offers of additions or updates.

I am aware these pages are used for reference by a large number of people. I am happy for them to continue to be used providing the user is satisfied the information is suitable for their purposes.

Throughout these pages are references to people who may no longer be with us. I have deliberately left the information for historical purposes. Please be thoughtful if you try to contact them and try to find out the situation before doing so.

I have little knowledge of shooting apart from holding a shotgun certificate for 45 years and shooting the odd pheasant or vermin on the farm. I am unable to enter into correspondence due to time pressure. If something is genuinely urgent please email me via the Beekeeping website and put "Shooting" in the subject line and I will try to deal with it.

Shooting Pages of David A. Cushman

I used to be a very active game shooter, clay shooter and target man. In the early 1970s I manufactured shotgun ammunition and specialist centrefire ammunition. If shooting is not your interest or you have come here in error:- Please use the 'Subject Index' button to look at the subject menu.

Dave lived in the U.K. Midlands at SYSTON, Leicestershire.

Much of my knowledge and experience in this subject is now wasted, due to some very short sighted legislation in the UK. I had hoped that this would not lead to such unruly mayhem as it has done elsewhere, but gun crime in UK is now rising at a faster rate than ever before and fewer people are knowledgeable enough about firearms to make an impact on this situation.
