  1. Busy weekend, as Tony didn’t have to work Saturday we went to Owls, no big score but I enjoyed the course and company and I did some stands well. Today was an early start off to Grange Farm which took me 21/4 hrs to drive there. Very enjoyable and in parts quite tricky. Again I felt I did well on some stands and wasn’t disappointed with my score. Was pleasantly surprised to pick up an envelope for Tony from about 3 yrs ago. On to Honesberie which was tricky also but again very enjoyable. No big score but I did shoot some stands very well that were hard. Stupidly I dropped 6/10 on a sim going away pair just not being steady and a bit blurry for me near the end of the day and knackered. Picked up two envelopes from there, one each from 2020. Grand total of £165 collected, result.

  2. Worth it if you can tell yourself it is. Otherwise it's your chokes that caused you to miss. Or your glasses. Or your jacket. Or the time of day. Or the seat of the vehicle you arrived in. Or your wife/husband/partner's last comment. Or finally your cat/dog!

  3. Jan is Sporting baiting again, pretending trap is normal, while actually most shooters are doing sporting. It is 125 cartridges at least which you need to set off with and it’s unlikely you will be near your car at any stage.

  4. Gamebore EVO mostly. Very middle of the road price wise. Pattern well and smooth.

  5. I have always believed that the man behind the gun is what make the difference. However even I have progressed to a better quality cartridge but I do not know of any cartridge I could buy either in France or Italy, where I do my shooting, that could get anywhere near £350 per thousand ! I am paying about €240 per thousand for a quality Rio T4 cartridges and the shells I brought back from Italy last time were Clever T4 PRO at €280 per thousand I would consider these premium cartridges. Anybody paying any more than £230 per thousand needs their head seeing to 🤣

  7. There is a large external zip pocket either side. Plus a pocket at one end, insulated drinks holder other end. Inside are various pockets / compartments, large and small. It’s really organised. Bag is rigid. I really recommend it.

  12. Churchill's yesterday. I would describe the course as similar to a Dime bar - hard in the middle. First five stands the only thing that caused me any real problem was the mini from the platform, couldn't find it at all. Stand 6 the wheels fell off. My current quartering target bogey struck and I also managed to overlead the second target massively as well - dropped the first two pairs! Was really peed off with myself as they weren't particularly hard. Then a tricky sim pair that could have been a disaster, but managed at least to get a 6/10. Then the complete meltdown hit on Stand 8 - quickish, long low crosser that wasn't easiest to see (I hit one) and a long rabbit along a bank (I hit none). Last four stands normality resumed and I think it was 5 dropped on those all together. Finished on 72.

  14. Think of it as a test. Consider how the experience has provided you with so many character building elements. How you saw your way past without any homicidal fugues in the tube. I'm sure there are many people who would gladly pay for such an enlightening experience. How lucky you are for having had that opportunity free of charge. Silver linings and all that, donchuno

  17. I had a good day today. The weather was pleasant and I went to Barrow, just one shoot. I had Dora as my lovely gunsmith got her back to me. Forgotten what it’s like not having to dig the cartridge out with my penknife. A mixture of targets and I shot well winning ladies on 86/100. Given that I’ve found every shoot I’ve done a real strain for such a long time, it was a good feeling. Someone will tell me it was an easy shoot no doubt but I haven’t found ANY shoot easy so jog on.

  19. Glad you said that. I've wondered what the difference is really. They've been using 21gm 20 bore during lessons and been doing fine. However, surely a 12 bore shooting 21gm will have similar recoil? Wouldn't a decent recoil pad and a heavier gun also reduce recoil and be more pleasant to shoot for them? I'd prefer to get them a 12 bore as the cartridges seem cheaper and there's a greater choice gun wise.
