    Decent 93 at Greenfields which I'd say was about right difficulty wise with 96 HG and 90 3rd. I fared poorly on one particular R-L 40+ yard white crosser missing 4 of them but managed to shoot the last fifty targets straight which was nice. 😆 Looking forward to Southdown and Gatton Bottom registered tomorrow, hopefully bump into some forum members.

    The F16 is on my own 'to do' list. In fact I have taken the good advice of @Will Hewland and I'll be shooting one at E J Churchill's on Tuesday afternoon, back to back with a Browning B525 at Royal Berkshire and a Beretta 692 at Sporting Targets in the morning. As a bit of a wild card, I hope to get a chance to try a Caesar Guerini Summit Sporting at some point too. According to Blaser, the F16 has been designed to reduce the possibility of double and fan firing; though I have read elsewhere this has happened on some older F3's. In my mind, ultimately a shotgun is a block of fancy shaped timber followed by a lump on decorated metal and couple of tubes in which a fire is started at one end, the resultant expanding gasses shoving out some balls at the other in the general direction of some pottery. It appears to me the main price differentiators are how fancy is the wood and how fancy is the decoration. Other than that there appears to be very little to separate one over another, other than how they feel to use such as trigger pull, balance etc which is apparently all quite arbitrary and to personal taste. It is for these latter reasons I rather like the F16 and the B525. I have never liked the fit of any Beretta (including a DT10) from the very first moment I picked one up, though it's the gun I have used the most. I also don't get along with the Browning B725 for its ballance. I don't want to buy fancy wood or fancy metalwork. I can't justify it or afford it for that matter. Besides, such indulgences are really not me. I'm a bit more art deco than art nouveau.

    I’m fearing the M25 on BH Monday, so will do Westfield. See you soon, maybe EJC.

    Nothing Reg local today and got mates round for a bbq this afternoon so could venture too far afield. Shot the 100 bird open comp at Willow Farm. Good targets, only one or two of them really challenging, with a few more that it was easy to drop one or two on. Finished on 83.

    Such a personal choice Bill. No right answer. If you’re in the market, go and try a few different guns. Somewhere like Churchill’s where they have a ground and a gun shop. Personally I think F16 is a real contender.

    Honesberie today. Started on stand 4 then on to stand 6 to miss queuing. I felt it was a decent mix, interesting and not overly hard. In fact I was thinking it needed one or two more tough targets. Near the end I did stand 5 and bloody got them! A cherry picker 5 yards behind the cage, chucking full-spring aways overhead. First one angled down and straight into a tree. Second one higher but still tough. I think this stand was ill-conceived personally. My mate shot a brilliant 7/8 on it as he is happy to shoot very quickly. Scorer had a really surprised tone when she announced pair killed. I died on it and hit 3/8. I’m a measurer and couldn’t get on with it. A few complaints from shooters watching. So, the scores today will be about right I suspect but not my favourite way of achieving it. I would have put a harder target elsewhere and a softer one in stand 5. Just my opinion. Still enjoyed the shoot and glad to scrape a 90.
