    Rock moved?

    Have genuinely been offered baby goats heads cooked with the top then taken off exposing the brains, on the same banquet table was a selection of cooked and pickled eyeballs from various animals....seriously. It was in the mid 80's when I was part of a team working in Libya trying to win a big government water treatment contract. I was told it was rude not to try them, I did and it was flucking minging.

    So from that I assume FT is scored like noughts and crosses...do you ever try to line them all up so you can draw a line through them 😊 If you want to get into Alcoholics Anonymous you need to drink more....or maybe its the Automobile Association, just Google it anyone can get in 😁 Excrement....nice...this place is like the poor relative of the Breeze, full of hormonal FTers πŸ˜ƒ

    I think you need to calm down, take a chill pill and read my original post and the title, I have started a new thread away from the one about cheating, I have made no mention of the need for changing targets, this is just me messing in my workshop 😁 Actually a split in HFT is always at least a one, sometimes a two, a split in FT is sometimes a zero, sometimes a two...all are hits 😊 Maybe we should do away with pellets and fit a SCATT to every rifle πŸ˜‰
  7. This follows from the discussion about FT rule changes, its not meant to be a nod to everyone having to change targets due to a few moaners/cheats, it was just me looking at what's available and seeing if it can be improved. I really like the cam lever lock affair on current silhouettes and cannot easily see a way that can be improved but the overall package can be I think. https://photos.app.goo.gl/qKEsYggerg3uvd7g9 So this one has some advantages: - as already discussed paddle in front means a split hits paddle first the split piece then hitting the plate, I am not sure this would make it easier for a split to knockover a target but it looks like it might - no pieces of lead go behind the plate, these can be a big cause of failures - a club only needs 30 plates but can then fit any size, or shape, paddle to those plates in seconds - if the nut on the stem is moved the sensitivity of the target can easily be adjusted, useful were angled shots are set On this prototype the biggest error is when falling the stem hits one of the lever hinges, easy to change. I know, current targets work, what's the point, they will be expensive.....blah de blah, its me messing in the workshop😁

    I Fear A Rule Change is Imminent!!

    Not much cop for HFT, us mere mortals need a plate to collect all those ones πŸ˜€ For me this is not about getting everyone to change targets just to come up with a better target, just because the current one has been used for a long time doesn't mean they are as good as they can be. I have actually improved the concept, the paddle is in front for the reasons said but the paddle is on a very short stem and can be changed in seconds, so one set of targets to which you can fit any size (or shape) of paddle. Will post pics when I can.

    Had a play and happy to report I have an ideaπŸ˜‰ Lets first think about what happens with a split currently, the pellet hits the edge of the hole and a portion of its energy is lost into the plate (possibly as said earlier locking the faceplate so making it harder for the target to then go over). The deformed pellet or a piece of the split pellet goes through the hole, by definition carrying less energy and strikes the paddle. So only a portion of the energy carried to the target is trying to knock it over. So why not put the paddle in front of the plate. Not as I suggested earlier, i.e. a traditional target simply with no metal surrounding the paddle, but the same mechanism with the paddle being struck first. Here is the prototype, its not perfect (only took 15 minutes to bodge) but it goes over most times and resets most times...some more thought on bearing surfaces and lever lengths could sort that - ignore the sizes....its a 60mm kill 🀀 Splitover Target So thinking about a split now the split is on the paddle edge so any energy there goes into knocking the target over, the deformed pellet or piece of the split goes onto the plate which is hopefully unlocked and on its way? Worth some more tinkering time I think 😎

    What, you miss that one too 😁

    Jeez, its a concept not a finished business proposition 😁 I will have a play and report back πŸ˜‰

    I know they have been discussed before but the more I think about it the more interesting it sounds..to me at least. So what about a black paddle in free air supported on a side on rib (3mm wide) that essentially minimises any metal that can be hit by mistake, behind this a fixed plate set far enough back such that the falling paddle is clear of it, this yellow back plate is to allow misses to be seen. Whats interesting is you dont get the traditional split, with current silhouettes you split on the front plate, which stiffens up the cam mechanism momentarily, the split piece of pellet goes through the hole and may or may not have enough energy to push the paddle enough to overcome the possibly locked mechanism. With a free floating paddle I would think even very light splits (which are now splitting on the paddle not the face plate) would knock it over as it doesnt have to overcome the large front plate that may be locked? Someone could still claim they split on the paddle and it didnt go over - the back plate could be floated so it rings like a bell a ding is a miss! I will make one to show you what I mean.

    Knowing why you have missed is surely part of the skill? Not seeing a miss in HFT is common with leaded up 8 and 45 yarders...you just join the blurred pile of lead 😁 Could put the plate behind the paddle? I shoot HFT most weeks, have shot a few shoots with no calls, I would say on average its 2 or 3 a shoot.

    I dont shoot FT but as not knocking it over is a zero why not do away with the plate completely, just have a paddle on a rod (8mm works) or an edge on upright (3mm wide x 20mm deep) then traditional splits don't exist, a miss is obvious as it hits wood 😁 I would think the hardest thing would be finding the target but a big arrow below would help like in the below album: https://photos.app.goo.gl/4gcfjSUAWVjRdnSB9 I think in HFT if you call a target as faulty and it proves not you get a big fat zero😁

    HFT scopes what should I buy

    Should allow laser range finders in FT then πŸ˜€
