    Really enjoyed my day out at Anston - some wicked targets and the firing line was shaded for almost all the shoot :)

    Thanks to all involved with the shoot.

    Dave.

    Fully agree Dave, a brilliant course with a great variety of targets. The shaded woodland course was a pleasure to shoot on one of the hottest days of the year. Well don to all involved in staging the event.

    If you're a true field target shooter then this was the course that leads the way head & shoulders & the one i reckon by which all others are judged ;).
    A course to make use of our expensive gear. A point i read somewhwere about no reducers in my opinion reducers are for clubs that struggle to get the full 55 yard range. Whats the point of spending two grand plus on targets thats 20mm 35 yard away that you aim dead on go do HFT :p. The wind to me and i guess most F,T shooters what makes the shoot not silly wind just enough to make you think :).

    Comments are appreciated and noted but as a matter of interest, Calp has worked out the average of the course and it was 44 yards

    It is through discussion that things can be learnt and adjustments made and even he agrees it was a difficult course!

    Thanks to everyone who helped from the club and to everyone who attended:)

    Reason .

    A good reason to have mini kills , is to lower the overall distance of the course . rather that have a 45 yard target you can have a 35 yard target up a tree in the wind that is just as hard as the long one and maybe a bit harder on the nerves . if the avearage shooter misses a long un , ah well there you . BUT if he misses a 35 yard target . he then try's harder mostly cos he is annoyed with himself . but like i say it would be a bit boring if it was all the same . stil having said that , it is a series so it does not have to be very hard ???

    Excellant shoot, excellant ground, well done everybody involved.

    Constructive criticism I would have like to have seen a couple or two shorter targets but the shoot goes down as a memorable one for the course as it stands so if it had a few shorter ones would it have been so memorable?

    regards,

    Matt

    Grub,

    Thanx for that, wish I could have managed a few more out of the last 2 lanes - missed 3 of them!

    Don't know what you are talking about with the what am I going to say to Diana, I was using their new prototype spring rifle! All being well Diana will soon be on the right track once a certain engineer has cast his eye over one of them.

    regards,

    Matt
