Northampton semi auto shoot this Saturday

Recommended Posts

Anyone coming to the semi auto shoot in Northampton? I've been trying to get to one of these for ages. Even bought a semi auto for it.

I`m going. I try to go to all of them as it`s a fun shoot with up to 3 targets in the air. They do have targets suited for everyone & I struggled a bit on the last one, but then again I have only shot clays a few times this year.

Sounds like a fun event. Would love to have a go but can't really justify the cost atm, maybe next time. Have fun if you go.

Definately is fun ! They used to just do the one in September, but now do the extra one in October as well. Shame they don`t hold more & I`m not aware of anywhere else locally that does a sporting semi auto event letting you have full use of the gun. I`m booked to go out on the 10:45 squad.

I'll have to do some research and see if I can find any nearer to me. Northampton is a 1.5 - 2 hour drive for me.

They are quite helpful & will probably able to get you in. I`ve even had last minute extras added to our squad, I`m sure you could even join us if needed.

It`s just over an hour for our group too, meeting in Godmanchester. Definitely worth the drive for the fun of a 3 shot semi auto comp.

Is it a Clay shoot? 3 clays, 2 or 1 turned to dust? :D

It's not the distance particularly. I spend 8 hours a day or more driving. It's the cost, with cartridges, petrol and entry fee it's going to be close to £100 and I can't justify that right now.

I can understand that, in fact this is most likely going to be my last one of the year. We split the cost down, by sharing the journey & going halves on a slab of cartridges.

On occasion I have managed to turn all 3 into dust, but also turned just the one into dust 🙈 all part of the fun though & the chance to empty all 3 shots in quick succession :shoot:

Sorry, I spent the day trying to get my semi auto work. Now a spare slot at 10.15!

Northampton are excellent at slotting folk in last minute. Most flexible ground I know. Call them. 01604781741
