Shooting related New Year's Resolutions?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone got any or plan to make any ?

I have decided to go fibre only on all my cartridges. I've placed an order for some fibre wad clay loads and will finish off my plastic wads and that will be the end of plastic wads for me.

Been using fibre for the last few years apart from steel for fowling, so have now bought bismuth rounds to stop using plastic. 

And get out with the rifles mlre is on my list.

Shooting related, it will be to get out decoying much more. Keeper from our syndicate is going to let me know when they’re about on his shoot, and his brother is going to let us know when they’re about on his, plus we still have the regular places and I may get some new places to shoot locally too. 

Also am hopefully getting another dog; quite possibly two, but we’ll see.

And to shoot a lot more clays; really enjoying my clay shooting again; it’s so much more fun now I have a regular shooting partner.

About sums it up for me to, I am afraid. The stand and shoot is OK, but its the next drive walking that does my legs & lungs in.

Just to continue as I currently do and make the effort to get out after the pigeons at least twice a week. Also being thankful of reasonably good health to enable this to happen.

Learn about reloading, have a go at bisley, and get my finger back in tune with the trigger. Been using the shotgun too much. My groupings are all over the place.

I'd love to do more shooting this year, but I said that last year and ended up doing more or less the same as previous years. Pigeon wise, I tend to get out doing as much as I can in February, roost and decoying, then as the roost shooting dies down, I do less and less and by may, the guns are put away until November.

Had my first go out on the foreshore last month, and this has awakened my hunger for more wildfowling, so I might see about a membership. Our guide was excellent, worth it for his breakfast alone!

Step up the training of my dog, prepare her for more work next season.
