    Well I have been a Browning shooter for most of my life, and I have finally stepped over to the dark side. Had a very good opportunity to get into a DT11L which was just meant to be. It really is a lovely gun, superbly balanced and very pretty. Just taking a little adapting too at the minute as it shoots a little flatter than my old 725, but it handles very well and just seems to glide. Looking forward to getting to know her.

    Bywell on Saturday for the English Open Sport Trap. 150 targets over six layouts. Great to see this comp in the North East. I shot 131 which I was really pleased with. High Gun was Paul Foster on 149. John Bidwell made the trip up and finished on 144. Well done to Bywell for hosting the event, it ran like clockwork.

    Tell me about it, I have always had miroku Brownings before now for 22 years, 7000, mk60, 525 x 2 and a 725. Always of the opinion that Beretta were clumsy and numb and slated them for 22 years. Then saw the advert said exquisitely balanced, and they weren't wrong, test drive it and struck a deal. Almost got expelled from the family for buying a Beretta .

    I've shot Beretta for 30 years and will happily shoot other guns if they suited me but if you put a Beretta DT10/11 action and barrel lumps next to a P or K or Zo or Mi or Br gun and stare at them for 5 minutes you will see they're right at the top of the apex. They also evidently don't suffer from too many breakdowns in any area.

    Pretty much the best engineered gun out there.

    We're up in Norfolk for a week's break in a cottage next to the River Bure. I abandoned my husband with the dogs and stole his car for the day, less than 60 miles from where we're staying. I don't think he minded too much, he got a days peace to spend fishing.

    We were going to Barrow but even for us it’s a trek. I really enjoy that ground and the targets, not too hard or easy but each stand makes you think. Didn’t go in the end as it was just too hot to take the dog and we have no one to look after her plus she would NOT let us out the house without her whilst carrying the guns!! Going to Owls for sport trap tomorrow. Shot it quite well for me last month so hoping to carry it on.

    Thanks Will. If memory serves correctly, I definitely didn't feel able to comfortably follow the line, so too much horizontal gun movement could well be a factor. I'll certainly also try your suggestion of shooting it later as I do tend to have more success on this sort of target as the 2nd bird to take in a sim pair (in this layout it is the 1st of an O/R pair), which does make sense.

    65 at eriswell and 70 at barrow, both below my average. Both shoots I had two particularly poor stands and the usual lots of one and two aways. First time I've shot Registered comps at either of these grounds. Shame that they are such a long journey, I'd love to shoot both of them again. It was too bloody hot.

    Looks very nice, even if it is a Beretta! 😉😝

    Made the effort to get down to the Barbury shooting ground south of Swindon today, set high up on the chalk downs it is a beautiful spot. Everything is neat and well organised, good car parking, paths between the stands, fencing and all well signed - top notch. Went with a couple of mates, and received a warm and friendly welcome, the coffee is good and free with very reasonably priced tasty bacon (when was the last time you had a choice of smoked or unsmoked?) rolls on request. The ground's targets are especially notable with a good variety right up to and including some that are extremely challenging either by speed, angle, height and/or distance - genuinely satisfying to break. There is thoughtful use of the terrain and a grouse butt too. Open 7 days a week, we will be going back - soon! Barbury Shooting Ground - web site link

    Having owned several of both over the last half century, I would say that the stock configuration between the Miroku and the Browning is quite a bit different, the nearest being the current 725/Mk38 sporter. The 325/425/525 were all a lot different to the Miroku's. The Miroku always seemed to have a nicer stock in comb height and grip, for someone like myself, who has small hands. I am currently using a 725 black thingy, but I do struggle a bit with the palm swell. All of the Browning interchangeable pads are great for those with Gorilla arms (they start at 14 3/4" and go UPWARDS). If, again like me, you need 14 1/2" stock, you may need to change the pad because the standard squidgy thing, can not be ground down ! (hence mine overhanging at the toe ). Some of the game Brownings still have the curved heel on the stock, which will need cutting straight to fit any recoil pads. One of the problems with the game Brownings, would seem to be felt recoil. I would certainly want to try the gun before deciding, remember, even guns of the exact same make and model can all feel different to each other, especially when you come to shoot them. As above, I have fitted a rubber recoil pad on my 20 bore Heritage, I warmed the pad up in boiling water prior to screwing it onto the gun. The pad then took on the curve of the heel, when on the stock.

    You’re not going mad I believe they were called ‘’so young’ but obviously didn’t sell well.

    Quite possible, however as I will most likely have to clean the gun Eley are off the menu, once bitten and all that!

    I really like Gunsite, but have avoided it for 2 years now because it has always been 300 entries and bad to get round, which adds to a longish car journey. A victim of its own success, partly because the targets are good without being too punishing for the masses.

    I rolled up about 11.20 and the parking was fairly full. Sean said it had been busy 1st thing but easing off. Total reg entries were 151 plus a handful of un-reg and that seems about right given all the other shoots and of course a few lightweights who stayed home because the temperature was over 20 degrees. 😉 Gunsite always gets a decent turnout because Sean is well liked and as one of the best shots this country has ever produced he sets targets that will find you out if your technique isn't up to scratch.

    I hate this weather, too hot for me but my addiction ensures I will still be out there shooting. I am dreaming of 18/20 degrees and Tony is dreaming of -5 degrees.

    Just because they answer the phone it doesn't mean they know anything about guns.

    This post obviously comes off the back of a post put on FB by one of the target setters. Why can't target setters just set whatever they think fit, and stop worrying what Billy Big Bollox wants.
