There was a youngish guy called Mark, who had long hair ( pony tail ), who was one of the early days HFT shooters. He was on the next lane to us and he missed about 5 on the trot. He exclaimed that if he missed one more his rifle was going downrange. He missed the next target and, sure enough, his PCP was launched downrange into a shrub. Nice day out. Parked amongst trees in the wood. Really relaxing after the shoot sitting with a brew chatting.
I'm 99% sure it was an AA shoot as i was there as well. The vertical shot was in the 'bomb hole'...i remember 2 stories of people launching their guns...both times they were warned
