    Beretta A400 Xcel - sport or multi-target?

    Yes, went for the 28in. The long reciever makes it similar distance between my eye and the end of the barrel to my 30in O/U.

    Can I ask what barrel length you decided on?

    Budget glasses and lense set?

    Does she sell that £17,000 metallic blue sideboard? The one in which literally none of the doors line up properly and all the drawers sag when you extend them? Than one that’s basically some sh*tty MDF school DT project, probably sprayed with some cans of Volvo Mussel Blue from Halfords out of the remnants bin. It would be the same sideboard I ranted about what a total pile of overpriced, over hyped sh*te it is on social media a few years ago. Apparently my posts were not overwhelmingly appreciated by Harrods

    Budget glasses and lense set?

    They're pretty bulletproof, excuse the pun... Ive dropped them, chucked them about, and they keep coming back fine. Would like the vermillion lenses cos they look tarty, but the standard 3 colours seems to have done me in every situation I've shot. Changed mid shoot a few times and all a-okay. 👌🏻Clarity is spot on as far as I'm concerned. Those evolution ones at 20 notes a pop are a bit more expensive cos they're separate glasses for each lens, but they look pretty dandy too... The advantage of separate glasses is you don't get the top bar like on the Sawfly cos of the inter changability

    Yes they look very sensible for the money. https://www.evolutionsunglasses.com/product-category/shooting-eyewear/

    Well if you look on ebay regularly enough you could get a set of Randolph Rangers XWL for a good price. I sold my Rangers on eBay and someone got a great deal... I should never have sold those way better than Randolph Falcons,not just way better immeasurably better. So from my post you will get the message do not buy Falcons thinking there are a bargain ... at any price!

    Budget glasses and lense set?

    Thanks, I've not heard of them, but I will look into them. A quick Internet search shows that extra lenses are available at a sensible price. How do you find the quality of build and lense clarity? Unfortunately I'm not affluent enough to drop hundreds of pounds on something without having to make financial cutbacks on something else. I therefore have to prioritise my spending, and my budget is the limit on what I would feel comfortable spending. I wish I was richer, but I am not.

    This is the world of shooting, unfortunately. Some things are pricey but absolutely worth it, but we all know some things are horrifically overpriced cos they know people will buy it just for the look of it, ala kardashians.

    Who do you have to justify what your buying too apart from yourself, sorry can never understand the meaning of that saying

    Dunno what you class as decent, but I and most of the blokes in my brigade who shoot all have Revision Sawfly glasses, as given to her majesty's finest. Figured if it's good enough to use when you're actually shooting to save your life, that's not a bad standard! Got my set second hand for about 20 notes and came with dark, clear, and yellow interchangeable lenses, headstrap, headstrap, and case to fit it all in. What's not to like?! 🤷‍♂️ (I feel, however, this will end up being like my mum's shop which sells the same stuff as harrods for half the price and people think there's

    Beretta A400 Xcel - sport or multi-target?

    Thought I'd revisit this thread. Stock arrived and Woody on here kindly let me fire off fifty 32g carts in his field. Scared the sheep a bit, but managed not to hit any of them. Took it out for a 70 bird try out on Saturday. Sight picture is pretty much spot on when compared to my O/U and it definitely shoots where I'm looking. Going to take a bit of adjustment to get used to how light it is up front and not to push through targets too much. I usually shoot overheads by letting them come past the barrel and then pushing down to them, tried that with the Xcel and ended up having to lower

    Budget glasses and lense set?

    Can anyone recommend a decent glasses and lense set for £150 or under? I shoot all year round so being able to change lenses to different light levels is fairly important, but a single lense pair that I can purchase additional (and reasonably priced) lenses may work. Unfortunately I cannot justify paying Pilla or Randolph prices.

    I really like the fit and field of vision that the Outlaw X-s offer, so I hope you won't be disappointed.

    Longridge today. As Doug said, squadded 3 day format works really well, got round the course in about 90mins. Good steady course, perfect weather, couple "technical" stands to make you rush when you don't need too. Shot 94/100 which I was pleased with, changed gun last month and scores have taken a real kicking (10%+), including an awful 75 at Coley's last week. This was the first time I've shot the gun and felt comfortable and in control with it. Couple misses were on fairly simple quartering away birds which I rushed. Hopefully over the blip now! Shot the Fitasc a

    I tried so many colours! Being an older lady nearing 60 I need more light and funnily enough what works for the hubby didn’t work for me. My trouble is seeing targets against trees/hedges etc so I went for the 40 CN as it neutralises green and the pink/orange stands out against it, the 44 cmx again medium light but gives the orange maximum boost making them stand out, the 60 chcw again, really good in open fields and woods and the 60 chcp is identical to the 62 gives a very high co trust on cloudy days which are a problem for me. However, after using them for the first time yesterday, I had

    Sporting Shoots 2020

    Everything local was fully booked so we went to kegworth roads were quiet so beat the sat nav time by 48 minutes. A good round with all clays fully visible and some nice crossers. They have a strange system of refs on each stand and a score card on each stand so not quite sure what a scored I think it was 88 or 89

    DT11's

    A custom fitted stock isn't included in the cost of a dt11. You have the option of the dealer arranging a different type of standard stock on the gun you buy as Geordieboy above has said (trap stock on a sporter)no visit to the factory is needed for this, just a good dealer. The other option is a VIP trip to the factory for a custom stock but this does carry an additional cost implication on top of the price of the gun.

    Meadowcroft this morning which didn't start especially well with someone screaming my name as my squad was ready with 20 minutes still to go, and despite someone who I was shooting with telling her "he's in the car park getting ready, I can see him from here" she continued, uncessercarily. That annoyed me then I had a pretty bad start, measuring stuff out again missing 12 over the first 5 stands then I started just shooting with a controlled aggression and missed 8 over the next 8 stands for 80 which wasn't a disaster.

    My sympathies! I agree with the "life is too short" strategy wholeheartedly. Then again, a month can be long when funds are short, but luckily I have no cause for complaints. @donna - 40 CN and 44 CMX seem pretty close in terms of "available light" in the spectrum of lenses , as do the 60CHCW and the "60CHCP" (meaning the 62CHCP?). Curious as to the reason / preferences. I'm on the fence about buying something similar to the 62CHCP, possibly the 64CB or the 80HC for when the light is low and the higher contrast would help. Will you post how you get on with the yellow lense (

    DT11's

    I'm confused about the fitted stock component that is supposedly included when buying a (any?) new DT11. Is it a specific package, does it just apply to some guns and not to others, and if it applies to the gun you buy, do you swap out the stock that it was shelved on? In looking at various DT's I spoke to one guy selling a DT11 black who felt like he had been cheated out of the custom stock for lack of the dealer even telling him about it. It had a standard (though adjustable) stock on it, but at least to his mind he should have been allowed to get a stock fitted and made. I find it har

    Nothing for me today. Sent Tony off to Southdown Fitasc whilst I spent the day in hospital being treated for a dodgy tooth which over Saturday and Sunday made one side of my face swell massively. By this morning I could open my eye well so off I went. Intravenous antibiotics and a referral to the surgery assessment unit. Luckily seeing dentist tomorrow for hopeful extraction and clearing of infection. A very horrible day for me. Although amazed one of the Drs I saw was a doctor, vet and dentist!!! Anyhow I hope to get sorted tomorrow and I’ve strong antibiotics to take.

    Longridge today for the registered. They're being run over 3 days now and it seems to work really well. Steady shoot, looked tricker than it shot by the looks of the scores. As usual an enjoyable shoot and I was pleased with an 87. 5 of my misses were in the final pair of stands so maybe a tad more concentration could have lead to a better card!
  27. Geordieboy

    DT11's

    Yes that would be the complete gun. I fancy the DT11L because it has engraving. GMK can supply a trap stock and Beavertail forend with dimensions that are close to my own. I just need a price. Having said that, Premier guns said that they can supply a new gun with the stock style that I want for no extra cost.
