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
Big Gay Al swung by earlier this morning and we headed of for a friendly round of sporting at Mendip Shooting Ground stopping as usual for breakfast at The Lillypool Cafe on the way
Mendip seemed strangely deserted guess people are fed up with the same old, same old and having to use their own cartridges. Anyway Mike asked if he could join us and naturally we said “No, fuck off”, LOL!
The weather was a little chilly, a hint of drizzle in the air with a fair breeze blowing but down on the sporting layout being a little sheltered it wasn’t too bad.
Stand one Mike kicked off with a seven, next Big Gay with a four and finally me with an eight, the next stand Big Gay Al stepped up with a quacking while me and Mike had an eight a piece. The next few stands were pretty average but Big Gay Al having had a shit start was slowly reeling in me and Mike, by the end of the round it was all on the last stand, a pair of driven.
So who was the shit shooter then?
After a mega shit start Al came in first by one clay
I just managed to hang onto second place by one clay
That leaves Mike to claim this weeks crown of shit
An over cast day here is the U.K, the threat of rain, 55 degrees but the wind is holding off so me and Big Gay Al went to the Cotswolds Gun Club for a friendly 100 birds.
It appears after floundering in the wilderness for the last few weeks I finally found some form beating Al by a whole stand Right from the start Big Gay Al was pushed further and further behind. I was shooting like a god and Big Gay was shooting like a cabbage, stand afer stand I was slowly ripping him a new asshole, then to compound the agony he shot a quacker, yep that’s right a big fat goose egg on an average looper with an easy rabbit, it was pitiful to watch he would have hit more throwing rocks at the clays
Today’s mouldering shit pile steaming in the morning sun, Big Gay Al
Gorgeous day for shooting here in the U.K , sun was out, 55 degrees and not a whisper of wind so me and Big Gay Al went to Ashcombe, Devon for a friendly 90 birds stopping at “The grill on the hill” for breakfast on the way.
It all started so well, Big Gay shot first, a left/right crosser down in a ditch followed by a high incommer dropping way out there and had a good start, then me also putting in a good score.
And so it went on, Big Gay in front by a clay, me in front by a clay, what a friendly shoot. Onward and upward to the last few stands, uh-oh a pair of driven one midi, one mini. I bat first, SHIT! 5/10 what a fuck up! Big Gay to the stand a perfect 10/10. Next a pair of quartering and I pull one back.
Finally the last stand a following pair crossing on the left, Al manages 5/10 which means I need 8 to win, not too difficult I think it looks reasonably simple. WHAT THE FUCK! I get a duck, Big Gay is quacking his balls off as are two guys waiting to shoot, oh the humiliation, the shame.
Couldn't hit a barn door
