I was always half expecting it, but thought I would have a few years of shooting left yet.... but my eldest lad has trials for a local U10's football team next week & if he enjoys playing for them will be playing SUNDAY's from the start of the season instead of Saturdays Looks like my shooting days are possibly numbered but I have to support him as he loves the game & puts a lot of time & effort into improving himself. With that & his athletics, the small ones football & athletics not sure I will have much time on my hands soon anyway, that's not forgetting a sulky 11 year old daughter going on 14

I don't know whether to wish him luck or not! - you can always take up Vintage open sights - we do that on Saturday afternoon.........

Hi Steve,
You can always return to it after 60 - like me! Or, perhaps, put in the occasional guest appearance. How will we ever get those targets out of the trees without you?

Don't worry Phil, I still hope to put some 'cameo' appearances in :D so will sort out those tree targets ;)
& Si, you are absolutely right !
I may have to buy a vintage rifle Charles if it gets desperate :O

I am hoping to still shoot through the SiHFT & the Worlds, but the winter will be out by the looks of last seasons tables, looks like I'll be busy driving round Sussex football grounds rather than shooting grounds !
I hope he gets in as he has out grown his current team now.

They're all right ..... you'll have the best of both.
I juggled fishing, footie, fighting, rugby and shooting for years.
I wouldn't swap a moment of any.
One day nobody needs you and you can do as you please.
'til then ..........
........... 'kin juggle like the rest of us have!
