Barbury shooting Ground is certainly a place that everyone needs to visit. Everything about the
ground is excellent and as they say first impressions certainly count. From the arrival as you view
the area and stands, the first few steps in the clubhouse and the warm and friendly atmosphere
from those who greet you. The stands give every variation imaginable spread over a perfect area
that is in pristine condition. As you travel around the site you will see coaches with novice shooters
as well as competitions being held for world class shooters. To end your day you can enjoy super
refreshments or visit the in-house shop to view or purchase guns and shooting equipment.
Having recently held such events as the English open FITASC championships and the pro challenge,
this was never going to be an easy course. That said the layouts and targets were as good as any
course that we had shot with, nothing extreme but plenty that needed some thought. However
Martin Elworthy cannot have read the script as he scored a blistering 96 to win the shoot and
dropping only four targets. Robert Taylor continued with his impressive form throughout the series,
again scoring in the high 80’s and staying at the top of ‘A’ class. At this point also Mike Hillyer must
be congratulated for not only his score but his belief and determination to overcome what can only
be described as a horrendous miss fortune. To see Mike not only walking around, but shooting to
such a standard can only be described as “truly remarkable”. Chris Boult also met the challenge of
the shoot, with an exceptional 85 – to not only win ‘B’ class but to take the most improved score of
the day with +8 on his FFC. Meanwhile In ‘C’ class David Moss continued to improve his monthly
scores with a well-deserved win achieving 72 and taking him up a class for next month’s shoot. ‘D’
class was once again won by Paul Nesbit-Bell on 48, in his first season of FITASC.

For our final shoot of the season we return to Somerset Shooting Ground with our host and fellow
shooter Robin Heal. Like Barbury this ground has plenty to admire which is always proven by the
amount of entries that return for the Sporting and FITASC monthly shoots held at the ground.
If you fancy joining us please contact me in the usual way.
Finally many thanks to Hugh Stevens and his team at Barbury for a fantastic day, we certainly will be
looking forward to returning there next year.
