Hi Rob,As I'm looking at getting back into registered shooting, being a lowly C Class :D , I could well be up for this. I will let you know nearer the time. Pity about you working on Saturdays though it would be good for you or anyone to see the type of targets on offer first , just to prepare you for the types and angles involved.

Fuzzy,Well due to a complete lack of funds, shooting had to stop with only the odd Saturday down at Wylye and whirly gig outing at either A1 or Rugby over the past 10 - 12 months. Not been to Four Counties for ages either. That might be worth a meet up as well. I do love shooting ZZ though.

Know that feeling mate, its double trouble when the missus shoots as well isnt it. Been thinking about doing a bit more now I have a new job and Michelle is more secure in hers. Excuse to go gun buying again :-D the 20g is far too expensive to feed on clays and my 24 inch barrel escort auto, while the dogs danglers in a pigeon hide, is not really the way forward for clays!Fuzrat

Tempted.. if only it was nearer. I have been a few years ago and agree it is a good ground; but it is 1hr 20m and not even a nice straightforward journey; so the many nearer options will likely win through. Will let you know if I have a mad rush of blood to the head.. Cheers,CSC3

Over two hrs for me but it's a cracking ground so may well give it a whirl!They also do the best breakfast out of any of the grounds we go to!

Hi Matt,If I can grab a lift with you i'm up for it, happy to split the fuel and come to you etc.Does anyone know if they sell cartridges?  I have 75 but otherwise will be stuck.Can't hit a barn door at the moment, but should be good just to get out :)Cheers,Jon.

Hi JS. Of course we sell cartridges, don't worry. £4.50 a box for the odd box, any more by negotiation! Usually, RC2, CompX or NobelSport - all in plaswads.

I Will be going on Sunday. The food is very good as Val does a cracking cheese and bacon panini, plus the cakes are superb. Whilst the ground is not to hard to find it is easy to go past the entrance and back up the A303. If anyone wants we can meet up at the Solstice Services about 10:45ish, might be easier to say hello there first. Andy
