    Sporting Shoots; where- and how was it? (2018)

    Griffin-Lloyd is a bit of a hidden gem and a great ground and valley for showing great variety of targets and did hold sporting registered and welsh sporting/fitasc team selection shoots many years ago but sadly now they don't its just open for practice but a great ground to visit all the same along with another ground called Dovey valley outside Machynlleth again used to hold registered shoots but now just practice in a lovely part of Wales .

    Lazy bones, I like to walk the course to the top 😀 It’s a lovely ground and very friendly owners. I’ve only been twice. Back in the day when it was more exclusive you had to be a member and they would do some shoots open to everyone every so often and it was packed with people coming to shoot.

    Griffin -Lloyd very underrated in my view. They have some really good high bird style targets. Just watch where you park your car as you go around in case of debris!

    Went out to the depths of Mid wales/Shropshire border to Griffin-Lloyd shooting ground on Sunday. Nice array of sporting targets over 20 stands. Drive around the ground to each stand, you need a car with a bit of clearance, 2 seat roadsters not recommended!

    On Sunday I shot at Star Gun club which I never see mentioned on this site, it's a non-reg club near M25 J9. It's open to non-members and you can shoot 60, 80 or 100 clays. It's a nice, spacious layout with club room, food, drinks, all the facilities. Open 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month. I'm still in the doldrums and shot 82/100 but enjoyed shooting in the sunshine after being drenched on Saturday.

    I see what you mean now! Look at images 2 and 3 for the RE Rangers, they show a much more minimal nose piece which is what threw me slightly. Might be wroth investigating more to see what all three lenses look like!

    Those are very similar to the ones I have now, the bar and nose bridge are the problem https://www.rxsport.co.uk/products/Wiley-X-Saber-Advanced-Sunglasses-%2d-Matte-Black-{47}-Light-Rust.html Thanks for the link

    That still looks like it has quite a 'busy' bridge area. You could look at the RE Ranger Phantom set: https://www.rxsport.co.uk/products/RE-Ranger-Phantom-Sunglasses-%2d-Matte-Black-{47}-RangerRed-Flash-%2b-HD-Medium-%2b-Dark-Purple.html

    Anyone tried these https://www.uttings.co.uk/p131041-wiley-x-detection-sunglasses-yellow-orange-purple-lenses-matte-black-frame-wx-1204/ I have a pair of their saber ones but find the nose bridge and bar seem to hinder my vision, but they seem well made. The high end market is well out of my reach so please don't say get a set of Pilla's

    Smiling, its ditto when seeing the pair of you, do say very well done to Tony for today. Indeed it was very very busy, just seen results and seeing names in placings I did not notice it was that busy, as for the dark, some of those shots can see clays like a sewer house rat with reactions of a cobra.

    Gunsite. Myers did 97. Still some mega stars out there when we left at 2.45?😱 . It may well have been dark when they finished. Got home at 4.40. 😡. Which for only one shoot is one hell of a day. Good shoot though as always. Very sloppy for an 86. 🤔 Jasper.

    Was only smiling because I saw you. Owls yesterday missing the rain, Gunsite and Westfield today. Don’t think I did any of them justice and they were all good. Still shooting with Lola.

    Gunsite today, always good day when ground owner points out that you’ve a little brown envelope to pick up from a recent shoot, say recent it was from May, rocked up before 11 was entry number 115 would imagine very near 200 at end of day. It was a lot chillier than home so coat between stands was needed. Brief cup of tea before one and all fell silent for Remembrance. Was on Tod but was lucky enough to bump into and shoot the course with young Joe Hemmings, a very good shot the chap is, mind you lord knows what he made of my efforts. Bumped into a good many chums, Mr & the in pain but always smiling Mrs Hoskins inc. Shoot wise apart from again having a mega brain fart on two stands of both l-r targets I had a most pleasant day ( did take thick end of three hours to shoot it ) and think, despite two very poor stands did finish well enough that one managed to put a 7 in front which is most welcome. Martin Myers 96 (I think) was HG when I left but there looked to be a lot of very good shots still on course.

    Same here. Nothing within a couple of hours drive that Registered. Off to a local small club and then maybe on to the open comp at Willow Farm.

    Amazingly nothing on within 150 miles tomorrow. Was going to Grange farm but it's cancelled.

    That’s right , the objective being the shortest distance from the opened cartridge to the forcing cone . My MK38 trap gun has 2 3/4 inch ( 70mm ) chambers .

    Zoli Kronos

    I think 70mm is a standard chamber for competition trap guns as the max length of cartridge case is 70mm... after firing.

    Zoli Kronos

    Why is it unusual and why would it matter either way ? I had one for a while and couldn’t tell you its chamber length if my life depended on it.

    Zoli Kronos

    Hello Have seen one of the above in trap form with 70mm (2.75") chamber, I thought that all these had 76mm (3") chamber. I can understand it being a trap gun but it just seems unusual, unless anyone knows better? Thanks

    Pilla 44N Lens.

    I use the purple colour lens all the time unless it is really dark seems to work for me. That is I can see the target... hitting them is the problem!
