11 Jul 19 - Olivia Tullett challenge review

Olivia Tullett challenge review

We had a great review from a very happy shot this week, having just shot the Olivia Tullett shoot!:

 

Shot this last week and cannot recommend it enough. Demanding and fantastic fun. It is not just the usual "game sim" set up where they put on a few flurries and name traps with a quarry species. You don`t load the gun and call "Pull". As well as a few more regular "pairs", there is a driven flurry and a grouse sequence which is really handy for practicing loading quickly and under pressure. The "jewel in the crown" is the walked-up section - much more demanding and realistic than last year`s set up (which was good anyway).

So if you want a good work out and warm-up for the coming game season, or if you just shoot clays and want to try something a little different - and less predictable ;) - this is well worth a "shot". We`re back for another go this weekend :)
