Lakeland returns from the cold to win TRIGGR-3
TRIGGR-3 was won by Darren Lakeland (pictured centre) with an impressive 92 out of 100. Lakeland was pushed close by Mike Yeates (89/100) and Rob Shorrock (88/100). Bitter cold and strong winds did not appear to significantly impact the turnout for the 100 Sporting open competition that also serves as Triggr’s monthly ranking shoot. A 50 Sporting competition was also held.
Gusts of up to 40mph caused considerable inconsistency to the targets. A true sporting shot will adapt to the flight path of each target presented and the plethora of scores in the 70s and 80s was indicative of both the quality and grit of the shooters on the course. A stoic Lakeland stood apart, however, the only gun to break 90.
Lakeland was making his return to the Triggr shooting ground after a hiatus of several years. It was a pleasure to see him back. As Bryan Prest from Malmo Guns commented when discussing the event, “He’s a bloody good shot is Darren”, we agree, the Preston man is a quality operator and will prove tough to beat at TRIGGR-4 on Sunday 29th April 2018.
