    Saaweet! I'm gonna hoist a pint in the hopes that he makes it. Of course this means that you are gonna have to stick around to let us know for sure. That way, we can root for him (unless he is up against one of our Yanks that is). :D

    Seriously, congrats Davy. I wish him straight shooting and good flying pigeons. Tell him that the Skullcrusher household wishes him the best. :)

    Ahh. Ok, sorry to hear.

    I imagine there are some serious trap and skeet shooters all around G.B. It is a classic and a gentleman's sport with a long history.

    Disclaimer: When I say "Gentleman's sport" I mean in the way competitors respect each other in true sportmanship. I know that women have proven to be very good at the same sport.

    Congratulations to you & your son, Davy! That's awesome...and at such a young age too. Hope he makes it in! You have every reason to do a bit of well-deserved boasting :D

    Way to go Davyboy. Give your son a pat on the back and a "way to go" for us. I'm guessing that's him in your avatar pic?

    Shooting

    To be honest Skull we are lucky we have access to farmland to shoot but for a lot of folks the clay range is the only game in town

    Having access to private land must really help him with practice; at my local range we can only shoot clays for 3 hours once a month.

    And thankfully the UK Govt hasn't touched shotguns...unlike the much maligned competitive pistol shooter :rolleyes:
