First scored Competition

After 5 lessons and 3 practice's at Orston S/G I joined a small local club and arranged to borrow a gun from a committee member as I don't yet have my licence back due to Covid backlog and cannot move my gun from Orston yet.

My first outing at this new club turned out to be a scored comp, I was ******* myself, fortunately my gun is a B725 S1 and the gun I borrowed was a B725 pro sport and I shot in the same group as the lender.

The first stand was 4 pairs of simultaneous going away birds which crossed over each other at about 30 yards, I could not believe it !!!  the first 3 pairs I hit with one shot as they crossed and the last pair I hit one and missed the other, I immediately turned round and offered the lender a whole £100 in cash, there and then, for his gun, he answered with two words and the second one was off.😁 My final score was 31 out of 50 birds, not to shabby.

Well done sir,so long as you enjoyed the experience it was well worth while.

By the way,of you happen to come across any B725's going for around the £100 mark drop me a line .😄😄😄

Thanks Jega,  Yes I really enjoyed it once I got over the "stage fright".

I found that this smaller local club was a bit less "clicky" and a bit more welcoming to a newbie, When I phoned the club I explained about the certificate hold-up and not being able to remove my gun from the school, they said no problem come on down and join and we can easily fix you up with a loan gun till you get yours.

I thought that was a brilliant gesture considering they did not know me from Adam.
