Surrey shooters achieved an impressive clean sweep of the inter county and club honours at the British Airgun Championships, held at Bisley from 24 to 26 February 2012 and contributed to an England air pistol win. 

Surrey took the air rifle Parker Hale Challenge Shield, with 2282 points, beating Yorkshire (2267) into 2nd and Hampshire (2120) 3rd. The county air pistol team won the Red Rose Trophy, scoring 2,207, ahead of Kent (2194) and Cambridgeshire (2159). Surrey's Centurion Target Sports Club won the SMRC Air Rifle Marksmen Challenge Shield and Air Pistol "Original" Shield and it may not come as a surprise that the combined aggregate Inter-County Air Gun Challenge Cup went to Surrey (4489), beating Hampshire (4267).

Congratulatio to Victoria Mullin, who represented England to win the Womens Air Pistol international Tucknott Memorial Trophy. Victoria also won the individual Women's British Confined Air Pistol Championship Cup with 470.8 after an Olympic final.

Mike Bamsey was also victorious with 686.4 at the end of the junior mens air rifle Olympic final.

Mike Bamsey, Ian Potts, Mandy Pankhurst and Kevin Sinclair represented Surrey in the inter county air rifle competition, and Paul Leatherdale, Holly Soul, Alan Goodall and Victoria Mullin made up the County air pistol team.
