Started in January and hit my first in June so about 6 months after I first started. Hit 12 in total now. Probably could have hit one a month or two earlier but I missed on the last dart alot Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

from what i remember it was only a few days after i started playing. I remember my dad swearing (which was rare in front of his kids) and then telling my mum that it took him nearly a year to hit his first one.

years for me. I just cannot get three darts consistently placed. Have thrown three now in the last year and quite a few close calls so don't put a time on it just enjoy the game and they will eventually happen.

Took me about a month, give or take a week.
Started playing in January and was out of work at the time so I was practicing pretty much all day back then.

I forget now, think it was a few months, but its hard to quantify really as in all the time I played from the odd times throwing as a kid then a teenager then when I re-played about 30+ I was not really taking it serious but just throwing very casually.

When I did decide to take it more serious and play properly for at least 2 hours a day I hit my first in less than 2 weeks.

So not sure if I count the few months were I was just having the odd casual throw as I honestly never even thought I would get anywhere near a 140 never mind a 180 Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

I don't think I had natural talent for darts, my throw was terrible and eyesight poor, it was just a case of been persistent and then eventually I got some consistency and grouping improved, so although what I had was not great I made the best of it. I did hit more 180's afterwards in the following weeks but quite often I did not even know they were in until I got up to the board.

The weird thing is since I lost my natural throw I developed one which I would say is a lot better technically but I don't think I play as well as I did when I had my natural throw, quite a lot worse I think.

I don't know when I hit my first 180, far too many sleeps since then.  I'm sure it was probably in my first year, when me and a mate were playing very regularly at the time on his home board.
