You wear a blazer shooting?

On Sunday you needed to wear as many layers as possible 😂 especially from the 3 hour point!

Yeah, that puts it nicely.

I was given a bright orange one with ATA ARMS written on it.  
Free to any of you collectors if you want it.

Better to give it to a young lad I’m sure TC has earned his 

Yes offer it to a youngster, biggest question has got to be, what were you offered the hat for, surely you weren't looking to buy an ATA?

No, a forest ranger mate was invited to an ATA promotion and was given the hat, so he unloaded it on to me. I have worn it a couple of times to keep the sun out of my eyes when shooting clays. Goes well with the H&H.

edit: isn’t an ata someone who sells ats?

Apparently only the guest winning team got hats - along with cups and a pen. We came second - must try harder (although I am sure my score got discarded  )

Hopefully Essex Masters next for me - a buddy is seeing if we can get on on the Friday this morning. I am also trying to find information on the Blaser - it popped up in my FB feed the other day and now can't find anything about it when googling.

The Blaser open is at Orston on 23/24 April  its on their competitions and FB page.

hi.

discobob , i attended the F1 challenge also , ended up with 73 , you beat me by one :) , we were in the same situation as you , we came into the room late , missed the raffle .and prizes . but on that note my squad reaaly enjoyed it.

i think our squad came third overall.

i just hope they sort it better next time.

I think I saw your squad coming in then - just after we had finished. I will do it again next year and hopefully they will get it sorted. Next for me I think is the Essex Masters event wise. I am having a session with @beretta soon to brush up a bit and will be doing Catton and perhaps Old Glossup and Kingsley before then to get practice in

Knock him in to shape please, see if you can find his potential!  

@beretta will be the latest in a long line of people to try :D

Mind you - the way I shot at Catton on Sunday he will need to bring a sledge hammer 😞 The score card is in my boot and I am still to scared to look. Absolutely a nightmare start - lesson learnt - blue lenses (new) are not good in woods with Orange Clays

Damn - you have discovered my secret 🤣 I use BH as my role model!!!

TBH - I flattened my old pilla frames at Christmas - and to by another set it worked out "sort of mans logic" cheaper to buy a frame and lens set - I chose the blue to see what they are like.

I predominantly use a light purple though or unless it is very bright I have a dark red....I wore them at Sporting Targets :D

I have been using either yellow or violet a lot lately and very dark grey in the summer, remeber that?

I had the option of blue or yellow - wish I had gone for the latter now. Although the reason I chose blue is a shoot last year at FD where the low house black clay wasn’t coming out of the hill on a layout - the light was terrible as well making the clay virtually unvisablet
