    Best one I’ve ever heard and it was a first for me,
    A pilchard missed all the standers on the course,
    “It’s the new synthetic stock, it’s not as forgiving as walnut for standers”.

    One I heard just before the break.

    I hit a leaf that was fluttering down off the tree.

    However the most original was Nick at the weekend who heard a knocking sound on his springer. To then see the balance weight fall away from the stock. Priceless.

    That’s the same book that Darron Hillier uses , except Darron uses it as a back stop when he’s checking the power of his rifle .

    Ok, the best excuse I've ever used.

    2017 Worlds hft, my trigger blade fell off the borrowed rifle I had setup in the pub car park the night before. (To be fair thats my usual pre comp setup)
    Everyone thought I was taking the mick, but it had genuinely fell into the undergrowth.

    Luckily someone had an odd Allen key a few lanes down ,after we had pi$$ed ourselves laughing to put it back together.

    ‘I pulled it’ was my go to excuse. In reality, it’s because I’m absolutely rubbish at reading the wind and range finding :)
