Shooting Pains is the sixth episode of the first series in the British comedy series Dad's Army which was originally transmitted on Wednesday 11 September 1968.

Synopsis[edit]

The platoon is selected to provide the guard of honour for Prime Minister Winston Churchill's visit to Walmington, but a poor show at the shooting range prompts the irascible Major Regan to consider using the Eastgate platoon instead. A shooting contest between Walmington and Eastgate will settle the matter.

Plot[edit]

The platoon are to form the guard of honour for Winston Churchill's visit to Walmington-on-Sea. But Major Regan decides that since their shooting isn't up to standard, the Eastgate platoon should do it. After an unsuccessful attempt to dress up a female stage-gunner as a private, Frazer reveals that he is a crack shot.
