    Euros weekend....

    i love shooting in the wind boys but i think when you move away from edge of plate it starts to become a lottery?

    Euros weekend....

    No excuses from me old boy, just didn’t shoot well enough on day 1 so 40/50 and shot the same on day 2 on a tougher course / condition so 35/50

    New Scope

    I spoke with Juan about the March shift in Italy. I think his behaves differently than Wreckers and mine. I did think mine shifted at +/- 7 degrees when it was on my FTP and this is why I brought a twin pointer but when I put the March on the 9015 the shift had gone. I never saw a move all last summer and winter except in Italy where the air temperature was 38 degrees at times.

    Yes fortunately your technical skills are unmatched ......the FT world can only handle so many rogue traders

    Ok here’s my thoughts on my 80X . It’s undeniably heavy as is just about anything that is quality built. It doesn’t move in the UK summer / winter but it does move when you take it into extreme ambient heat like Italy Euros and Poland Worlds and then it moves by 5 yards but it moves and it stays there. Wrecker has brought the Delta for this reason but the glass isn’t as good as the March and it ranges only as good at best, But we have to remember that Wrecker is an eccentric millionaire so don’t take to much notice. As for the Khales the ones I have looked through have had gaps that are to large and are “vague” at best when ranging. As you know big gaps are not what you need but repeatability is. I miss ranged one target out of 100 this weekend in a dappled light, I had the option to double check the range by bracketing with the superb FT ret but I didn’t bother so my fault. in my opinion for what it’s worth the 80X March is the best FT scope in the world right now.

  16. 2 points for a kill and 1 point for a plate (miss) in HFT. Reminds me of every grandma watching her fat grandson on school sports day come last in the running race. Don’t worry lad you may have come last but you were the best by far, here have these doughnuts lol
  17. in FT is sometimes a zero, sometimes a two...all are hits 😊 -excrement- no wonder I can’t get in AA I’ve only been putting one X down for a hit........so that’s how Gilly does it!

    If I was looking for a new scope I would have a close look at the Delta.
  19. Nowt wrong with existing targets I say again it’s the cheats that need to be changed.
  20. with day 1 of WFTF 18 taking 6.5 hrs in extreme heat due to a reported 25+ stoppages of which 90+% of them were found to be unnecessary i fear a rule change regarding "calling" targets is both imminent and necessary. This worries me a little as the organizers response to yesterdays issues is to say that no called targets will be checked during the shoot but if the target is found to be faulty at the end of the shoot then that target ill be pulled for everybody. I for one wouldn't be happy with this. At the BFTA Euros 17 i witnessed blatant calling of targets that ended up as misses and one unnamed nation in particularly guilty of this to the point of it being almost cultural. For me this isnt something we see often at BFTA level but it appears to be increasingly rife at international level (i have to say that this was not the case at EFTA 18 in Rome). So whats the answer to stop this blatant attempt to cheat which effectively ruins a good cheat for everybody? here lays the problem as i dont think the answer is easy. A quick think about it this morning and i came up with a potential solution? 1, If you call a target and subsequently that target is found not to be faulty then you loose both targets for that lane. Ok so you may have already missed the first target in the lane i get that but the idea is is to make sure there is a penalty for a wrong call. would that stop the cheats? Your thoughts..........

    I Fear A Rule Change is Imminent!!

    Exactly my thoughts

    I Fear A Rule Change is Imminent!!

    i dont see what the problem is with 99% of the targets in use today as they are. The problem is the cheats and ive already suggested how they can be stopped. Leave the targets alone.
