    Beretta Worlds

    Hi
    I've only been back in the saddle for the last 6 months,and I'm thinking of shooting in the Beretta Worlds which is at the end of this month.
    Just wondering what fellow shooters that have shot this competition thought of the shoot.

    Thanks Chris

    I'm happy to be told I'm wrong, but I'm not sure there are many folk local to Hampshire, or talented enough for it to be worth spending 58 on an entry fee.
    .
    Still - good luck! I hope you enjoy yourself.
    Freedom is having the right to offend and be offended; politeness is temporarily eschewing that right in respect of others; maturity is understanding the compromise and applying it.

    Your not wrong at all, l know 58 is a lot of money for a 120 bird shoot,but the local CPSA 100 bird English sporting competition are 35, but for me it's taking part,and doing as well as I can,and for the experience,I've only been back to clay shooting for the last 6 months or so,after a 25 year lay off.
    Been shooting air rifles for the last 15 years competitively,local and national,and have done 3 world championships,which I enjoyed,if I hit more than 50% I'll be happy.

    Regards Chris

    Get on and have a crack Chris. You'll most likely love the experience more than the actual shooting though as the targets will be real tough.
    Couple of little tips though.
    Use rather tight chokes like 1/2 and 3/4 with quality cartridges that have a 5% antimony (hard shot) as that will get you just a few more targets on your score sheet at a shoot like that.
    Carry a couple of bottles of water with you on the round to stay hydrated or you will suffer real bad I assure you.
    And take a really comfortable pair of shoes as there will be a lot of walking and a lot of standing around.
