  1. Thank You PPI ?

    ...And I thought you were buying that as your main FT rifle to give this 'good thrashing' you've been promising for so many decades?
  2. So.......the last Winter League fixture this side of Christmas and as many know, ETL in Winter can be the graveyard of many an aspiring FT team as that wind darts here and there swirling around those carefully crafted channels in the woods... Kent Woodsmen are romping away and barring a serious disaster like the Dartford crossing being closed, look like they will enter the New Year as firm leaders in Division 1. By the same token, now that Dan has finally found his mojo and almost cleared the Springfield course it looks like it will be a Choppers/ Eley shoot-out for top dog at the end of the season. However, don't get the names to the engravers just yet as we will only be halfway through and as I always say it's not over until the fat Holly sings...
  3. Airgunforum, what future?

    Yep it's more than obvious that neither of you are genuinely serious about passing this forum over and that ultimately no one will pass your stringent criteria for new owners. So I will also thank you for your time in keeping the forum going over the past few years and wish the pair of you the best in the future, but ultimately I am out of here.
  4. Airgunforum, what future?

    J-B with the greatest of respect I think we've already made it clear that in this little section of AGF which is still functioning (albeit at a primeval level) we are marking time until the future of this forum is decided. Now if you and Dave decide that you are going to close the forum regardless then that is your decision and yours alone and to be honest it seems to me as if you are both just looking for an excuse to kill it off instead of passing it over to those that are willing and able to inject a new lease of life into the forum.
  5. Some People and the terminator .

    I dunno, but I've a feeling you are going to try to bullpup every single one of them. Luckily he doesn’t have enough money for that...
  6. So as fingers and toes thaw out from the cold at Iceni and the shell-shocked stagger from the course wondering where it went wrong, the focus switches to the copse at Springfield or will it be the copse and field just to spice things up a tad...hmmmm..... Either way all will be revealed on the 19th November, will it be corpses in the copse, we shall see.
  7. SEFTA Winter League Rnd.3 Springfield....

    I’m sure that somewhere some nutter has roller-skated around the World, or could it be the last frontier ready to be broken for Holly Guinness Glory....
  8. Csfta Bisley winter league

    Same as ours at ETL, hence the defectors...
  9. Fit To Shoot .

    Hahahaha, yea either that or the only gay in the village...
  10. Some People and the terminator .

    If that’s the case why are you confusing the issue by maybe looking for another?
  11. Airgunforum, what future?

    No, apparently that’s cream pie...
  12. Worlds UK 2019

    He beat me by one target at the Worlds, the shame of it all....
  13. Super Pup is here .

    Good job you don’t treat your women like your Rifles. Even by your standards that was a fast turnaround? Instead of finding another GC which ultimately would be an exercise in futility, get the one you have sorted? If you had half an ounce of sense you would have got the custom stock made for the GC instead of the Steyr...
  14. SEFTA Winter League Rnd.4 at ETL....

    Unfortunately our catering in the form of the lovely Sally is recuperating from a serious operation, but will be back next year ready to satisfy the hungry horde, until then it will be basic finger food, but at least we do lay on some food...
  15. Yes, hot on the heels of the FT Worlds we have the Winter's premier competition and as usual a few questions have to be asked: • Will Keith and Simon make a come-back from their Summer hiatus... • Will Nat's superb shooting with her 9015 continue once the temperature drops... • Will Gary's meteoric rise continue or will he hit the roadblock that is A grade... • Will Andy finally get the hang of his March and start clearing courses... • Will Leanne finally ditch the FTP, get a 9015 Club and realise her true potential... • Will Dave C's bad run during the GP series continue to dog him in the WL.... • Will Ian manage to find his rifle, put the laptop down for a few minutes and shoot this year... • Will the Hat defecting to Springfield help their teams this year... All this and more over the next few months...
  16. SEFTA Winter League 2017-18....

    Damnit I still think that ‘if’ Dan can maintain his near clearance at Springfield he will blunt the Chopper, I mean, it was an anomaly, who, I ask who misses the very first target then goes on to clear to course?
  17. isp airstream

    Ouch John, that’s a right bind to say the least.
  18. Bazzas 9015 ?

    Bazza will make his choice purely based on shooting potential, nothing else. Either it works or it’s out. Now that the Tzar has been sorted by Gaystate apparently it is accurate, stable and reliable, all essential for a decent FT rifle. It is also left-handed though the grip needs to be bigger to accommodate his ‘shovel’ hands. He has the later 5 lever trigger, so while not being up there with Anschutz is still light years ahead of the bull-pups he has to put up with recently. The 9015 is right-handed but being in the alu-stock is ambidextrous though the grip is not and so far finding El Dorado seems easier than sourcing a left-handed Anschutz or Steyr grip in the UK. So he can use it, but it’s not ideal not being able to properly hold the rifle. Bazza is one of those shooters that can pick up any rifle and do well with it, I mean he shot a Ripley for years, so all in all the Tzar is probably the best bet for him judging by his recent tests.
  19. isp airstream

    Nice one, did the budget stretch to a stock as well?
  20. SEFTA Winter League 2017-18....

    I would do but Neil tells me that you takes ages to settle your bet debts...
  21. SEFTA Winter League Rnd.4 at ETL....

    Yep plenty of banter at ETL, usually at Gary’s expense....
  22. Csfta Bisley winter league

    Yep Gary has been marked down as a deserter ??? HOLLY Hahaha well you'd better mark Woody down as well, sounds like plenty of lapel ripping off and sword breaking happening in Central...
  23. SEFTA Winter League Rnd.3 Springfield....

    Took the kids roller skating for the first time last weekend and they loved it. Pretty good value as it was £6 for all day so they were well knackered after four hours falling about so result.
  24. SEFTA Winter League 2017-18....

    The problem is that he has tasted the elixir of Anschutz and Comp. scope so Sunday he was finding his old scope hard work. Of the three of the three real contenders Steve is up there beavering away putting in consistently good scores so I suspect once everyone's worst round is dropped the final fixture will be a nail-biter...
