Thanks Doug, will try 

First time at WMSG, excellent venue, weather was tops, warm, no wind and hardly a cloud in sky lots of sun but no target affected by it anywhere.

Start time was 12.54, we started ar 12.45 and bar a few no birds, just 1 battery change and short wait for re-loading the monster lift went without a hiccup all done in a sedate 3 hours. 

This chap had a slow first two stands then shot next five, the type of which usually egg my face as well as Ive shot anywhere recently, even a welcome 😊 on St7 a big driven pair a 7/8 was just begining to think it was going rather well then wheel(s) fell off, again l-r targets my downfall. A habit then of pair dead,  pair dead, pair lost, loss - kill stands, odd and cant explain it. I did benefit though on one stand where an eagle eyed ref saw some very small chips off a clay or three, will take them. 

The already infamous st15 dropper from tower I found once, its teal not at all, so a damp squid end, 78 which is 65%, cant be dissapointed as Ive recently shot a lot lot worse than today and was really pleased with myself on a number of stands.

Do all enjoy your day, WMSG really have put on a great event

oh twitters amongst you theyve gone an put out an image of me, & having just seen Day1 scores on CPSA web theyve used same image Im a star, dull one yes but a star 😂

Good report Richie and well shot. Looks like stand 15 has took its toll on many.

I assume your Perazzi choke combo was enough for the whole course? It appears we may get a wet shirt on Sunday now looking at Hodnet on BBC weather. Hopefully it will hold dry all week.

Perazzi MX2000S 30” choked 3/8 & 3/8 used 12 F3 Bior, 70 F3 Piston & 38 F3, I didnt miss due to choke nor wrong cartridge, I missed because Im simply not good enough on some and a very big 🤡 on even more 😊

You all enjoy, its a very good shoot

Is it edgy or big distance?

No but its fast and seems to get faster as it gets lower,i got lucky on one somehow but no idea to be honest.Last time a saw that target was 20 years ago but that had a cliff behind it so you could spot shoot it using reference point's behind but this only has sky behind.

Edit, ps ,forgot to say its going a bit right to left so its easy to pull off line aswell.

Another edit the above is the way i read it others may well read it completely different.

Monster lift, rumoured 150ft, clay dropping near vertically when we shot it, you see full clay, Newtons law of accelleration (have I spelt that correctly?) so very very little time, o/r a quick flat going away edge on teal which seemed distant then even more so. Our squad went 0, 1, 0, 2, 1, 6 (AA) on said stand and we felt lucky. 

Will repeat, as a shoot it was most enjoyable

It cannot have been that bad I hit 5 on 15 and only scored 78 overall

Stand 15's a great target, I didn't hit a single one of them though. I struggled to connect with it, my approach was all wrong. Still now - I wouldn't know how to approach it.

I hit three droppers and two teals. Held the gun about 1/4 down from the top, maintained about a 12ft gap and shot it just below halfway down.
