In an unusual departure from our usual practice of just taking in the cheaper numpty shoots Al, Jos and myself persuaded by Alf decided to have ago at a CPSA registered shoot, so off we all went to Meadowcroft, Marksbury near Bath in Somerset.
Meadowcroft is a great shooting ground set in a valley with a mixture of easy, teasing, testing and what the fuck birds it makes for a good mornings claybusting.
Al has finally found some form after spending a few weeks floundering in the shit pile and came out on top
Next in line was myself, I couldn’t hit the side of a bus this morning even managed a quacking
Finally today’s shit filled wheelbarrow, Japanese Toilet Boy
After three humiliating defeats in a row Big Gay Al desperately needed a win bad so I picked up Japanese Toilet Boy (Joss) and Al and we headed off for a mediocre breakfast at The Hilltops cafe before setting off into darkest Devon for a hundred and forty birds at Ashley near Tiverton.
Right from the start Big Gay Al meant business with a nine on the first stand, followed up by a straight ten and a couple of eights, kind of left me and Japanese Toilet Boy playing catch up.
The round went on and Big Gay Al was in his element, nine, ten, ten, eight, eight, he was like a shooting god only slipping with a couple of fives on the whole round.
A huge cheer for Al back from the dead
I came in second trailing by almost a whole stand
And that only leaves today’s shit splattered thunderbox, Japanese Toilet Boy
Today the annual charity shoot at Chideock near Lyme Regis in aid of the air ambulance was held and me, Big Gay Al and Joss (Japanese Toilet Boy) took the hour and something drive to have some claybusting fun all in a good cause.
Upon arrive my old Town Car promptly got stuck in some soft mud in the gateway, we weren’t the first and were not the last to fall victim to that soft spot, after being unceremoniously pushed to one side it was time to check in.
It was a great 50 bird layout with a good mix of easy and not so easy clays including one little teaser that looked so easy but no one was hitting.
So what were the scores
After two rounds I came out on top with 82/100
Japanese Toilet Boy came in second with 69/100
That only leaves Big Gay Al today’s steaming pile coming in last for the second week running with a miserable 67/100
Couldn't hit a barn door
