Default Greyhound Today

The MFTA winter league had its first visit to the Greyhound Gun Club today. Thanks to the Greyhound staff for an excellent course in a very different setting. I particularly enjoyed shooting over the winding brook.

The Greyhound is open everyday for practise and I will certainly be visiting again. It's only 5 minutes from J3 of the M6 and well worth a visit.

Just to a quick post to thank the Greyhound guys for a cracker of a course and to congratulate the guys that managed to clear it today! Also would like to say we have a cracking facility here and I for one will certainly be there during the summer for evening practice. Support the Greyhound guys!

I have to agree with all the above. You never quite know what to expect when shooting a new venue and I was pleasantly surprised. It was clear that work had been put in and it was a tough course, the wind was very kind.

Hope to shoot there again.

I have put a link to photos on the photo thread, but hey, here it is again.


Oh yes well done to the guys that cleared it. I'm off to practice target no30s

ditto all the above, course builders put a lot of effort into giving us all a good shoot today, well worth the trip there. Congrats to all those who cleared the course,

Great shoot in a friendly atmosphere as usual at the Greyhound. A great new course including 10 new lanes especially for the event. Thanks to all who put in all the hard work to make the shoot a success and put the Greyhound on the FT map. Open 7 days a week with set up/ zero range and full FT & HFT course for practice, cant beat it.
Make every shot count
