    Heard Dan did a 47... Wonder if it's enough for an official hat..? Guess it depends on how close Jack and Neil and Mark were...

    There's not that many up the trees, perhaps 3 from memory, there are some nice targets in tricky areas and by tricky I mean to read. I'll do a couple of videos on Saturday. I know Andy wasn't happy with the Inters course so I don't think we'll be seeing another "growler" because they are boring.

    Prepare for some twisting and turning you cushion if Andy has anything to do with the layout of the course.

    No we're not talking when an Anschutz shooter did it, Walther did the individual less than 10 years ago... and I think we did the team title twice in that period as well... 😄 Might have the team shirt and cap somewhere... 😉

    If the person leading the GP series can't even get a hat there's not much hope for a region 😄

    I hope so Holls, i learned a lot about myself after the absolute disaster of Day 1 in Italy last week. When all i wanted to do was come home (to England) and sulk on Friday night i decided to dig in and show a bit of metal and was pleased to post a couple of half decent scores. I have a recent clearance in my locker and now some resilience to add to it. I know the areas i need to improve on but its not easy and there is no quick fix. I just feel im heading in the right direction and have to be happy with that at the moment.

    No, I distinctly remember you saying you were 'getting the GC2 ready for sale' or did you say GC2 but actually mean Anschutz after all to your befuddled nonce they probably do sound similar...

    The heat was oppressive guys but that wasn’t a massive problem to me personally or no more than to anybody else except for the last 7 lanes of the last day when I was seeing double. The issue was that I was under ranging on the first day by 5 yards despite taking clicks off prior to the shoot starting. By the time I could see what was going wrong I.e. hitting the 6 o’clock edge of missing paint the damage was all done. Couple that with my clicks being out on the very many 15mm reducers it was just a nightmare. Day 2 I had time to sort my -excrement- out (I only had 20 mins on the day before the shoot) and had to overcome issues like filling from a bottle that had no gauge or bleed valve!. I moved my pointer to where it needed to be and day 2 and 3 were about ok. Lesson learned was get to a Mediterranean major at least 2 days before the Comp starts.

    A bit of an eye catching title, but it's aimed at a guest, a non-member, who seems determined to send Admin a response to every post he reads. So far he's sent a couple of hundred - YES, A COUPLE OF HUNDRED - responses over yesterday and today. He's using the option to report posts to admin so I'm swamped with these rubbish, one line comments. Join the f'ing forum or f-off, you troll! Apologies to the people who have figured out how to use the forum properly, but what this means is that all guest comments and queries have been banned. DaveL

    Back in 1900 and frozen to death . i qualified for my first showdown . ( 18 times in all ) to do this you had to be in the top 6 i think it was at a GP . i learned that a GP was being held at a ground near luton off the old A5 Broomhills . the course was set by dave welham . it was a public shooting ground . so for two weeks before hand i drove down there to get the hang of the wind there . on various parts of the course . anyway , i did qualify . much to my and my shooting mates surprise . the showdown that year was held near manchester . i had to borrow a car to get there . my first round was with funny enough dave welham . he was a top name then .he beat me by two targets . so i went into the plate . i was not then a barrel cleaner . did not really know much about it . half way around the second course . the barrel went off and i hardly hit the plate after that . anyway i got my badge and away home i went . loved it . great atmosphere . one mistake and your out / yep good memory /?? HOLLY PS the next week at the club . i stapled a notice to one of the chairs in the club " SHOWDOWN QUALIFIERS CHAIR ONLY " when they saw it , the chucked the chair and me out the door .

    And where do you get the idea I’m not skint Holls, I’ve got 5 kids and an 18th century Manor House that takes a lot of up keep! That’s before we even get talking about the holiday home in Barbados that needs staffing as well. If you think the Bentley runs itself think again. To he whom much is given much is required dear Holls.

    Nobody is interested Rob . so there is nothing left to say . just glad everybody is happy . ??? HOLLY PS All i did was pass on an idea from SWEFTA that i thought was a good one . that would help some who might need it and encourage others to try it . i was not demanding action . this is a forum . you put forward ideas . they may be liked , they may not . someone else may add to it or point out errors in it . as has been seen . nobody on here thought it was a good idea . that's it . .
