London 2012 Olympics Shooting Venue

The London 2012 Olympics Shooting Venue is pretty darn cool looking, and for a country that heavily restricts gun ownership I’m really impressed at how elaborate their range is. The exterior of the shooting venue is covered with what look like octopus tentacles and was designed by Magma Architecture out of London and Berlin, those tentacles are actually functional too. They help ventilate the building and help create tension nodes for the steel structure under the venue’s white skin. The venue is actually made out of three temporary PVC tents that were assembled at London’s historic Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich. They’ll be dismantled after the games are over however, but they’re set to be used at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, Scotland in 2014 as well.

  1. do you know if there is a common make/model of ammo they are required to use?
    I would assume that they would be required to use the same to keep the field even.
