Perfect evening for a round of Sporting Clay's here's a few photos of tonight's action ... See MoreSee Less

It's that time of the week again to get the Fish Battered and the Chips (fries) chopped, ready for late night opening "Frydays" here at Green Acres.

Last entries for all Clay disciplines is at 6.pm and the kitchen takes last orders for British style Fish'N'Chips' at 7.45.

We are an open shoot so all are welcome, the "Fryday Sporting League" is well and truly underway and with last weeks improved shooting conditions is was "Marks Marauders" leading the board again with a cracking 168/200 with Gary Anderson and Matt Burdett splitting High Gun honours each shooting 84/100.

Chasing their tale again last week on 157 was "Hinkles Hotshots" and new teams "The Reds' putting a first time score in of 154 and the "Smokin Joes" at 151.

You still have time to register a 3 man team before the 14th July cut off point.

The weekend forecast is for Perfect Shooting Weather here at Green Acres so why not head on over and make a day of it, you know "It's The Place To Be!"

A lot can happen in 3 seconds. Poetry in motion or complete & utter chaos!
"I love this very short video. OK, I'm a little biased as the person behind the gun is my daughter Leah". Two years ago today she held a shotgun for the first time. This is her first ever shot, under the tuition of Keith Coyle at Barbury Shooting School, Wiltshire, UK.
Prior to placing a great pattern into the target Keith tutored Leah through the shot 4 or 5 times with an empty gun. Keith's philosophy of younger shots 'never miss with an empty gun' allowed Leah to grow in confidence as well as allowing the person coaching her to make all the required alterations prior to that very first shot. He knew exactly when she would hit the target with a loaded gun and made the transition between empty to loaded so smooth Leah did not even think about it.
Everything about this 3 seconds is perfect (I know, again, I'm biased lol). Gun never stops. Movement is so smooth. Great pattern placement..
Yes, blink and you'll miss it all, but studied closer there's a whole lot of detail in those 3 seconds. All of it positive. All of it provided by a highly skilled instructor.
Thank you Keith Coyle. Leah could not have found a better instructor, coach, tutor, mentor for her introduction to shotgun shooting.
Gun Used..... 28 bore Winchester.
Our loss is America's gain I say. Good luck fella......
PS , Leah likes to take sim-pairs now from high towers lol......
