Keen-eyed shooters could enjoy a cup of tea in Parliament if they top an MP's score at an Attleborough range.
MP for Mid Norfolk George Freeman has challenged people to beat his rifle score after a recent visit to ShootAbility, the first disabled air rifle and pistol group in Norfolk.
Contenders have until the end of February to beat his 38/50 and the top five will be taken on a guided tour of the Houses of Parliament.
Mr Freeman said: 'Too often people with disabilities in rural areas don't have access to the opportunities available elsewhere.
'That's why one of my central missions as a MP has been to support disabled people locally, and why I was delighted recently to visit ShootAbility, in the heart of rural Norfolk.'
In February the club, which was started in 2013 by Carole Darnell, will take shooters Neil Howard, Mikla Frere and Glen Puxley-Pituch to the British Airgun Championship, after a five-strong team placed well in last year's competition.
Mrs Darnell's background in shooting and National Governing Body of Disabled Shooting (DTSGB) qualification means ShootAbility is a talent ID club for the Paralympics GB squad and allows Mrs Darnell to coach Paralympic events.
