They pay you for it and your employer can't sack you for going and has to keep your job open for you.
You get to play Soldier, and have a normal life. It says "upto" 12 months. Where is the issue, m8? Are you telling us your local shooting range, recreational shooting centre, etc, isn't good enough for you while simultaneously saying you think the TA is too scary?
I make this assumption based on the fact you seem to be well versed on what can and can't be done in the UK, from your OP, so therefore discounted clay pigeon shooting and war games before posting this thread. Also, your obvious trepidation at the thought of deployment. You do realise that if we had militias in the UK and we got invaded, you'd have to fight then as well?
