    Miroku LOP

    There were two stocks fitted number 5 or 7. The former LoP was 14-3/8" and latter 14". They both had the same drop front to rear 1-1/2" to 2-1/2". These dimensions are from the Miroku catalogue.

    Well, not quite in the league of most here yet, but had a great day (and first day) at West Kent last week for a practice session (thanks for the tip @donna ). Really nice ground and well laid out. Great tower! managed to get myself up to 58, so not applying for the GB squad yet, but it’s an improvement and a PB. Going the right way, still enjoying it, and still very much learning! ... But great fun! Note to self: book next coaching session!)

    FITASC - What would get you back / to try again

    As Donna highlights, to shoot 4 No 25 bird FITASC sporting layouts in 6 person squads will take 45 minutes per parcour so 3 Hours of actual shooting per shooter and 9 hours for all competitors to go through. Traditionally for a days shoot (old system) this is arranged around a rolling rotation of 3 sets of squads, so a max 12 squads with 72 shooters and a scheduled down time of 90 minutes between layouts or 4 ½ Hours in total. This does include the walk/ride to and from clubhouse/car park and getting to the waiting point 10 minutes early before starting next layout. This will require a minimum

    FITASC - What would get you back / to try again

    When we started shooting the first time around (25 years ago roughly) we would get up super early and drive from Kent to Derbyshire or down to Somerset to shoot fitasc and think nothing of it. It was “old” style so you would shoot the one layout from 3 different pegs. It was always shoot a layout, 45 minute gap then off to shoot the next layout, and so on. Yes it did take all day but it was enjoyable. Most of the “older” friends I see shooting are old fitasc friends, it was a chance to meet different people from all over the country as everyone seemed to do it and because you stayed in th

    FITASC - What would get you back / to try again

    Orston used to run their fitasc straight through, you would get shot in about 2 1/2 to 3 hours hours if I recall. The Long brothers at Park Lodge used to do something similar but with a half hour break at half way so was about a half day job. Both very manageable time scales. We used to shoot Grimsthorpe and it was a proper full day out, but we'll worth it for the targets they used to set.

    FITASC - What would get you back / to try again

    That is why the events at Nigel Harts at St. Dials are so appealing TipTop. Turn up, shoot 50, 45 minutes for tea and bacon, shoot 50 more, your done.

    FITASC - What would get you back / to try again

    The thing that would do my head in is, 90 minutes between each 25 bird parcours, as was the apparent situation this weekend. If it was 50 break 50 then maybe I might have a go at it.

    FITASC - What would get you back / to try again

    Surprising how many people feel the time to shoot FITASC appears to take so long. Yet I know shooters who will sit in a car for 2.5 hours to travel to a 100 bird ESP Registered. FITASC is my second discipline which I do enjoy, but you do need to wipe the day out. I have been shooting the ESP registered circuit for many years now and have become friends with many of the disciples of that discipline. Shooting FITASC for the last 3 years also, I have met so many new people who shoot only FITASC. They are a very relaxed and welcoming bunch, who get the maximum out of the day, with both shooting an

    FITASC - What would get you back / to try again

    Don’t see any enjoyment in taking 8 hrs to shoot 100 clays regardless of what discipline it is. It would have to be done in a few hours to get my interest.

    Always been intrigued by FITASC but never seen it shot! 9 hrs does seem far too long for a clay shoot though !!!

    FITASC - What would get you back / to try again

    Never shot FITASC, when I go shooting I want to shoot. Never really been interested in sitting about all day drinking tea. If I wanted to do that I would go to the local cafe.

  20. There is a online FB thread discussing how long a typical FITASC shoot takes and possible “solutions” Now I used to dabble and it was a combination of 1) the time a shoot took, 1/2 day 2) I’m rubbish that dulled the attraction and I simply stopped. What’s took my eye today though is the shoot that was the spur for the thread was that each day the shoot started at 9 and ended around 6, however which way it’s dressed up that’s a long day, fair play to all for having the endurance required. I do fear though that those type of long days may make FITASC less appealing, ESP seems to be having a bit

    Yes it is certainly the quickest round I know, due to the pairs method. I enjoyed it. Maybe wants one more hard stand, but some good stuff there. A stellar entry makes it look easier than it is. I had a nightmare on stand 7, missed 5 just trying to hit the orange in the wrong place until the last attempt. Got annoyed and missed the other clay too. Really silly. Otherwise not bad. Finished on 88 which would have been 90 if I had not stopped the scorers give me two kills that were losses..

    Honesberie for me today, again another really enjoyable round. I managed 85 (possibly 86, not sure on my maths 😄). Scores are up but it looks like one of my stands might have been confused with the person I shot with. Will be sorted quick I'm sure. They have the best flowing system that I've shot. You go around as a pair and it's rare that you get to a stand and have to wait for the pair in front to finish shooting. It runs super smoothly and helps ensure there is no bunching of people.

    Court Farm this afternoon. First comp this year for me, albeit not a Reg one. Defo not match fit. Straight on the first two stands, one away on 3 and then I started to wobble. Started dropping last pairs or one bird of the last couple of pairs. Then dropped 5 on a following teal that I should have been all over. Put both things down to being over cautious and aiming instead of just shooting the bloody targets. Did ok on crossing stuff, managed to rein in the overleading. Finished on 78, but it wasn't a tough round and should have been mid-80s on those targets.

    DTL Hold point, for a one eyer??

    Not meant that way, but Hey, take it as you like. That's the trouble with the typed word, as opposed to the spoken word, one can't see the intended grin. 😁

    Sporting Shoots 2021. Reports and discussion.

    Totally agree Will, so many of us moan about not being able to see a target and unless we tell them they don’t know what to change but it’s the way you go about it. It would be great if they did start to do regular shoots there, I thought it was lovely and enjoyed it.
