Bustin' Clays

Or not in my case!
I had a great day yesterday as I got invited to a friends surprise 50th birthday clay pigeon shoot.
It's been years since I've been clay shooting and even then it was on my uncles home made trap that would almost take a finger with it if you weren't paying attention.
The shoot was really well organised and interesting with lots of the clays being fired in different ways to simulate different game. Some were much easier than others, but I was being shown up by the two brothers over from me who didn't seem to miss a clay.
My 12 bore wondered what had happened to it, I don't think it's ever fired so many cartridges in one go. I think I got through 8 boxes (nearly a slab), but I'm not going to say how many of those hit their targets! Maybe I should have some lessons! 
A great day spent outside, with great company. Thanks again Tim and family! 


  1. It's about the fun, when we were kids we collected any unbroken clays in the days after the shoot, l can't remember how much they paid us for returning them, but it was worth it.

  2. My clay shooting was abysmal. I stopped.
