Thermal Lift although this isn't an excuse its a true phenomenon
"My shooting buddy farted"....
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.
I just miss them because i'm too Lazy to pull them up again.
how about I shot all the right targets but not necessarily in the right order
Or how about I hit that dead centre but it's still up but I know I got it
It's a ricochet reset!
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.
Ah rhe mighty mud hopper I wondered when you would be along lol. What is this checking power business you tell of?
'how about I shot all the right targets but not necessarily in the right order'
One for Simon Ayres I think...
‘I pulled it’ was my go to excuse. In reality, it’s because I’m absolutely rubbish at reading the wind and range finding
“I Shoot the PM session”..........Bob Evans lol
Currently I have the excuse of a Posterior vitreous detachment in my right eye
