    It took me 1.5 hrs this morning to cover the first 25 miles to Owls Lodge because a lorry had overturned on the A249 exit off the M2 😟 but it was worth it, don't normally shoot well in such windy conditions but delighted with joint 2nd with Mr. Childerhouse no less, 😊 hope the purple patch never ends, that's my third 93 in the last three registered events on different grounds. 😎

    Another interesting observation is that when you see new custom stocks being made from scratch or adapted to suit for existing guns, the comb is almost invariably raised 😐I've always maintained that most new guns combs are too low even for people who don't particularly need or want a higher one. Getting the grip area fine tuned, the pitch perfect, the length optimised and the cast spot on is one thing but why on earth can't makers just admit their combs are too low for no logical reason.

    Been up to Greenwood gunsmiths today to collect my old 682 Gold e. Some years ago I took some bad advice on gun fit, so much so that I put my beloved Beretta in the cabinet and just left it. Shot the next few years with a multitude of different guns as one does. So at the beginning of the year I decided I wanted to resurrect the old gun, and decided to go to Tim Greenwood, now based near Market Drayton. I had already decided roughly what I wanted so made an appointment and started the process. First off is what Tim calls the "Blue Peter stage" for obvious reasons. Bits of tape and foam....and off you go for trials. The next stage when you are happy that the fit is some where near is to take it back to have the stock work started to "in the white" stage. While it is at this stage you can go back to have as many tweaks made as you like, until it fits. When you are totally happy that everything is as you want it the the final finishing can be done. The work, and craftsmanship is absolutely fantastic, although the process may not be the quickest, the best things come to those that wait. Thanks to Tim and Laura for doing such a great job.

    West London for me too. Firstly, I have to say the ground looked fabulous, as good as I’ve seen anywhere. The course did show that WLSS don’t put on competitions regularly for sure. 14 stands, with almost half of them being “corporate” level easy. But the other half were good, especially long targets coming from the top of banks and the tower targets on the last three stands. Simon, you shot very well and were easily leading A class, so it felt easier to you than it was I suspect. I also had a good day, setting a new PB with 97 which was leading when I left. Agreed, if it does end up HG then it is helped by some top talent being in Italy. However, some great names were not banging in high scores today. An unusual course, but enjoyed the last half immensely. I missed a simple away on stand 3 which was ridiculous, plus two other decent targets. I had a nerve wracking last stand, knowing I needed a straight for a PB, especially when the last pair threw a no bird..

    Sorry, but that is completely missing the point and it's not just a problem at Westfield. Both as a ref and when shooting I repeatedly hear the same complaint about several grounds and whilst it's difficult for the shooters it can also be very challenging to score targets when they're flying across the sun, especially after several hours of it. I understand there's a lot consider when setting courses but south facing stands will always have the potential to be problematic on sunny days so in my opinion it should be up there along with safety, front and centre in the mind of the target setter.

    I would say that most guns need very little in the way of servicing,regular cleaning and whip the stock off occasionally for a little light lubrication and cleaning if necessary is all that is needed i have never had a gun fail. Then again if you have a Kreighoff it probably knows its own way back to Alan Rhone😏

    Shot JBD's 100 reg ESP today in a rather capable squad which included Scott Collett and Henry Arnold 👏 and was pleased not to disgrace myself with a 91, three behind HG as we left. I have been meaning to say young James Bradley-Day really deserves credit for getting this place up and running on such a relatively compact and featureless area, it really is amazing how he's managing to squeeze 12 stands into such a small place albeit it obviously has to be run in a squadded format. The shooting points are literally a few meters apart but don't let that fool you into thinking there'll be no variety or difficulty; sure he could do with a tower or platform or two but all thing considered he has my unreserved admiration, there's plenty to miss there if you get caught off guard and his experience at shooting at various venues here and abroad is easy to see. Unfortunately we did have one or two stands that produced no end of no birds but these things happen and it's more than likely due to worn rubber arms or something which will I am sure be rectified. Handing us all a box of shells and apologising for the delays was a nice touch.

    It wasn't a reg shoot so you can do what you like with your card half way round. Many might not realise that most of the Great shots who made their path through the straw balers and charity shoots of 80's-90's shoots would often have four or five re-entries to find problem birds and would often bin a card that had one too many misses early on.

    Just back from a mammoth 300 mile day with a 5.30 alarm call 😴 , first time visit to Four Counties and agree with Will totally, this is obviously a good ground that can present good birds with a bit of thought as the dropping Teal and high L/R proved but for me it was marred by the mickey mouse consecutive stands of shallow angle L/R pair of Std and Midi thrown together followed on the next stand by a going away pair of the same Std/Midi and then just as you thought it couldn't get any worse another Std/Midi away simmo pair but thrown high ! 😮 Do course setters really think we won't notice or do they just not care, sorry but I think we deserve better for £40 quid. Enjoyed the round otherwise and 87 was all I deserved. Only just managed to catch last entries for Court Farm on the way back to Kent and wish the traffic would have been a tad worse than it was so that I'd have had to go to JJ's for a bit of non reg arrows 😆 instead, I have nothing against shoots that cater to a certain market and throw samey birds because clearly plenty of people patronise their shoots as is evident from the largish entries they enjoy here and at Gatton Bottom but had I known that I wouldn't be allowed to physically see 30% odd percent of the birds because they were thoughtfully thrown directly (and I mean directly) into the sun I wouldn't have entered. Two stands of simmo pair Teal to boot, high crossers or incoming droppers that you couldn't see, 😶 what is it about the sun that catches course setters out so much, can they not understand that if a stand is going to be affected then they should at the absolute least throw lowish targets there !?

    College Farm today, after 2 weeks off shooting. I think it doesn’t hurt actually.. It was hotter than I thought, with very low wind. Missed first target out in front, then knuckled down for a 94. I really enjoyed it as there was nothing brutally hard, but also only one or two filler targets, so a good medium test on most stands, with some decent longer targets. If you were having an off day you could miss in many places. Nick Portlock leads on a 96 from yesterday. Friday still to go. The ground has had new paths put in, making this place better than ever. Always enjoyable. We did have one trap with bad no birds, but they found the clays had melted into Pringle shapes..

    I shot red worse than blue but the reality is I found them the same level. I obviously don’t suit those type of targets and I actually got excited to see the driven can you believe that!! Fitasc tomorrow and then I’m done. On the point of averages I am finally over it and I don’t care any more. Freedom.

    Left there about 40 minutes ago. 95 was leading then (Jamie Brightman). I finished on 83. New PB for me too. If only I was any good at driven and sim teals it would have been more.

    Shot a couple rounds of skeet on Saturday and shot some very poor scores (84 and 87) so put the gun away and went to the beach on Sunday instead. Managed a 99 (from the ice cream van) so it wasn't all bad
