My First Showdown .

Recommended Posts

Back in 1900 and frozen to death . i qualified for my first showdown . ( 18 times in all )  to do this you had to be in the top 6 i think it was at a GP  . i learned that a GP was being held at a ground near luton off the old A5 Broomhills .  the course was set by dave welham . it was a public shooting ground . so for two weeks before hand i drove down there to get the hang of the wind there . on various parts of the course . anyway , i did qualify . much to my and my shooting mates surprise . the showdown that year was held near manchester . i had to borrow a car to get there . my first round was with funny enough dave welham . he was a top name then .he beat me by two targets . so i went into the plate . i was not then a barrel cleaner . did not really know much about it . half way around the second course . the barrel went off and i hardly hit the plate after that . anyway i got my badge and away home i went . loved it . great atmosphere . one mistake and your out / yep good memory /??

PS the next week at the club . i stapled a notice to one of the chairs in the club " SHOWDOWN QUALIFIERS CHAIR ONLY "  when they saw it , the chucked the chair and me out the door .
