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

    Yes, last two layouts were hard. 3 was just fiddly as heck and all long targets on 4. I did a 24 or 2. Otherwise not my best day..

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

    Owls today, Sportrap went on tod and was squadded with a nice quartet form more SW than SE so my bumpkin accent was at home, one had, well by this ones standards a rather good start, big 😊 after L1 & L2, oh then stuttered on some rather tricky simos on L3 before my own l-r demons took over on L4, overall though one had a pleasant afternoon and was glad I went, pc was down when I left so no idea of scores

    Did you try a Blaser yet? EJC have them as Club guns so you can borrow to try. They have stock and forend weights, so you can adjust the feel very well.

    Could I point out that if you so much as fit an alternative pad to a new Browning / Miroku according to BWM you will invalidate the guarantee ! ! ! ! Be very careful , it could be an expensive route you are going down . Refund and buy what you can find /like /fits/ suits is the best way to go . For the sort of money you are spending I would certainly look at CG as an alternative .

    Seriously, try a second hand CG Invictus if you can find one. If you cant, try a Summit.

    So the maths make you right I feel @GlawsterOldCodger Gun: £2900 Adjustable system £250 Teague the gun: £320 x 4 Teague chokes £216 Total: £3686 before a pad change and spacer. This is a lot of money - and there must be something (even a S/H MK38) off the shelf for no more than £2500 which ticks all of the above. (Before anybody says it I have completely lost my faith in the B725 which makes it a non-starter for me).

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

    I think everyone struggled on the battue. I struggled on the first bird on Stand 2, was OK on the green going away one. They like eyesight tests at Gatton Bottom, the incomer on the platform wasn't easy to see either as it was so edgy (although I shouldn't complain as I hit all of them).

    It was Gatton Bottom for me too and I enjoyed it, we enjoyed the wind effects, the clays were all over the place, this cost us a few and the overall scores were not high as a result. I thought green clays against a green field was a bit fiendish on stand 2? and the teal especially were "variable." The battue on stand 1 was my undoing.

    Kinglsey Moor for me yesterday. ESP. Course was nice and varied. My first time at the ground I was impressed with the geography of it - big valley for some low going away targets and nice flat field up the top for simo rabbits. The wind didn't half interfere with the birds. I seen a couple of dropping targets fly up the opposite way and start rising haha it made it interesting but for somebody like me (class C) it was a bit tougher.

    Just watched that. It's the same as mine, although mine's 32". I have the slimmer forend too. Love it to bits - use it for sporting. Can't say that I have too much bother with cleaning though - that said I'm pretty meticulous, being an engineer. I enjoy your youtube vids. Not read this thread yet in its entirety but I always watch your videos, The Gun Shop videos, Dave Carrie films and Ian Harford's Team Wild Vids.

    might not recover?(understatement) very few things I am sure of, but losing monies on any change of equipment is mostly a certainty, especially if its altered from stock condition, doesnt matter if its a camera or car etc, thats how life works!

    We got that selection of targets just by shooting the ABT in wind this morning.

    Westfield for me, Tony had to work this morning, a shock to his system although he managed to get to Horne. Did the Compak with the EJC boys and enjoyed it. First layout for me was 4 and I didn’t settle well into it scoring 18. There were only 4 of us and the movement you have with Compak coming out of stands before everyone finished was the first time I had experienced that in Compak. Second layout was where the pool shoot is normally and improved with a 22 then the layout to the right of that in the field managed 23 and last one back up the valley to Bill’s layout a 22. So finished on 85 so given how blowy it was I felt I did okay. Had a bite to eat and went out to the Sporting with Wendy Spackman, Peter Woodcliffe-Thomas and Jamie Gutteridge. It was a fun round with some laughs along the way. No disasters just one away repeatedly and one of 2 away and two of 3 away. I was very pleased with stand 12 as I missed 2 orange to the wind and the first crosser. Shot that second bird gun down after that and it was poetry in motion even if I say so myself. The wind was gusty but again I felt I did as well as I could and finished on an 82.

    Will does have a point, as for the MK38 ticking boxes thats a long & possibly expensive "aim to do list" you already have in your head for the gun when you get your paws on it, like many Ive got a MK38 Trap, bought when, after a wretched 6 months with it I shifted on a DT10, its (the MK that is) the most base spec which was then already multi-choked which for sporting is almost needed due to the original Trap choking, then for it to fit me I had the stock lenghtened & then cast as the stock was ram-rod straight, never seen such a straight stock on anything else Ive ever owned, the Mk is still in my cabinet I didn't need to sell on when buying a P gun, chap in short there is most, very very most probably just the gun for you out there which won't need the extra over spend (which you might not recover in future selling on)

    Oh ! Where is the fun in that . Where would the world be if us chaps were sensible . I love tinkering . I loved the 10 gm weight saving that the World Superbike race spec wheel valves gave to the last motorbike I owned . I often discussed this valuable performance enhancement with my mates over a pork pie and a sausage roll 🤡
