Spring is such a time of expectation, it’s almost as if the whole of the countryside is just waking up.
Shooting recently with Richard Gray at Scrivelsby with a team I had not met, as usual people enjoy showing me their various guns. One in particular was a Robert Churchill with 25” barrels, a self-opening premier model being used at the end of the season with 32 grams and 5 shot to some effect. Note the fine detailing and fancy back action, imagine how difficult this gun was to stock!
In recent years, thanks in part to the emergence of ladies only clay shooting club Femmes Fatales, the UK has seen a rise in the number of women regularly taking part in shooting sports.

With the days just starting to stretch out a little, we can with a bit of luck start to look forward to the onset of spring, but how has this past shooting season been?
