  1. Not been shooting that long anyway but on certain clays my line is good but the shot pattern falls beneath the clay. Rightly or not, I have put this down to my sighting picture, I have been told my mount and stance is OK so I have concluded it must be a sighting problem. To explain this thought train, my initial starter gun had both a mid bead and a tip bead, My lessons instructor explained to me that the purpose of the mid bead was to help with parallel alignment of the eye and the tip bead primarily, however, a secondary use of the mid bead was that for new shooters, it could also be used initially to set the rib angle in relation to the sight line. This was achieved by lifting the gun angle until the eye saw a "figure of 8", formed by the tip of the mid bead being the bottom loop and the tip of the foresight bead forming the top loop. After a while, when my gun mount became second nature, the functions of the mid bead would largely become obsolete as the angle of the rib would become muscle memory. This worked great for me and my scores steadily improved as I developed my clay sight pictures. Then I purchased a new gun with a tip bead only, thinking that muscle memory would kick in regarding the sighting angle, and for a while it did, but shooting once a fortnight plus any odd days that I could swing has not been enough to maintain this muscle memory. So guys, I would much appreciate any good tips or techniques to help with re-establishing a good sightline picture with a single front beaded gun. two tips I have been given so far are raising the comb or taping an object the thickness of a pound coin one inch along the rib and lifting the the forend till the tip bead can be seen over this object.
  2. Hi there, I've been looking at ear defenders / hearing protection for clay shooting. I would like some advise from people on what works good. I've been thinking about ear plugs, rather than ear muff, but I would like some advise. As I'm not sure what the decibel reduction needs to be. Any advise would be helpful. Thanks
  3. This club I attend is looking out for safe and experienced new members. We try to shoot fortnightly on the edge of the Cotswold escarpment in between Horton and Hawkesbury Upton but don't always get enough numbers to put on the shoot every fortnight. A couple more members could make the difference. We shoot between 9 and 11am on a Sunday. We have some manual traps, take it in turns to trap for ourselves and put on a 50 bird mixed sporting shoot for the eight or so regulars who attend. It's very basic, relaxed, low pressure, and not competitive. Guns keep score if they want to but not if they don't. Cost is modest - £10 for visitors. Membership fee varies annually, but includes BASC membership as we are affiliated. For more information or if you'd like to visit us please PM me and I will alert you to when we will next be shooting.

I was wondering if anyone knows of any clay shoots in the County Durham or Tyne and Wear areas where ya get to clay shoot but have more privacy, as in just you and couple of friends or a clay shoot where everyone shoots at the same time and gets their own little booth type thing, something like that, let me know Cos it can be bit annoying keep been given pointers at times, ya just want to be out there to bust some clays with the 12 bore.
