I’ve booked in for the 10th for an hour in the morning. You pre pay 100 clays per hour at the usual member/non member rate. Max 2 hours at a time. I won’t of been since November so I expect to use 200 cartridges.

I saw it was, but don't fancy the pre pay, pre book as my circumstances can change rapidly.

I'll leave it till I can just drop in.

Sunday morning at Sycamore will do me on clays for now. Last two Sundays have been really quiet compared to the crowds I thought would turn up.

I though the same about pre-pay, so went to Doveridge instead, which was fun

Had to move my original booking from the 10th to yesterday which they were fine with. There was only 3 other people there so no queuing and no worrying about sticking to the 1 hour slot.

What do you do about buttoning etc? Just set the delay?

Cheers

I was shooting with somebody so took it in turns buttoning but yeah I would just set the delay if I was on my own.

I always find the delay takes ages and I'm stood waiting.

I prefer to press as normal, it speeds me up, no waiting, less thinking and more action. 

That's just me and I'm sure you'll get your own take on it after 1 stand.

I usually press the delay while I’m putting my cartridges in.

I've not used the delay TBH. I liked the foot pedals at Doveridge last week, solved both issues :D

Mount when you see the target. You don’t have a pre-mounted gun when a quarry appears.

I agree, unless you are learning to shoot or a competitive clay shot. The mount is a key part of the swing.

I fail to see how having a pre-mounted gun is learning to shoot. It is teaching you to hit a target and kidding yourself you can then shoot.

It’s teaching you what a properly mounted gun should feel like when shouldered and shot. I’ve seen some pretty nasty bruising on full grown men when they’ve mismounted a 12 bore, men who have shot for years. You have to give people some confidence. 

You don’r teach a child to ride a bike by just giving them a bike. Pre-mounting is the stabiliser that helps new shots learn.

But I’m not shooting quarry so do you sit at the stand with the gun a cross your lap  pouring a cup of coffee a some stands

Sporting videos, on the peas again?

My point is that pre mounting does not help your live shooting.

Dont say things like that you`ll upset a lot of new clay shots who have been taught nothing else and in many cases paid a fair bit of cash  for it!!

Totally agree with your point of view ,it`s a disgrace to shooting.

The problem comes when they want to try their first day’s game shooting and want/need to try and shoot like that. I see it more and more often.

There`s ££ to be made getting newcomers to hit clays quickly and nowadays people want rapid self gratification,that is the driving force for it all ! Gun up should only be allowed for trap shooting disciplines imho.

But we are talking clays and why do pros in competition shoot gun up on less it’s fitasc
