    CENTRAL WINTER LEAGUE . NEWBURY .

    The field target community were deprived of witnessing Holly v Monty (Thriller in Manila or Rumble in the jungle) . I guess we will have to wait till next year, but i'm sure it will be worth it just like Joshua v Fury .

    CSFTA @ Basingstoke

    A big thank you to the Basingstoke crew for a great course , blustery wind, bright sunlight and a course with something for everyone . Special mention to the SEFTA posse and Simon Evans and the Doc who travelled from Wales. Possibly a record attendance for a winter league shoot 52 shooters ? Good to hear some old fashion banter and laughter as well as seeing grow men cry .

    isp airstream

    CZ on both of mine , gives me great accuracy ,wide selection of pellets to choose from and doesn't need much cleaning.

    isp airstream

    hi John, I've got 2 of them no 12 and 35. I've been shooting mine for 5 years and its never let me down . Rob Montani and Andy Simpson have two each as well and they are very happy with theirs. The beauty of an ISP is that Shaun can build it to your specifications involving you with the choice of barrel, trigger type, and finish (titanium or blued). Shaun sets them up spot on so they are crisp to shoot with a very quick lock time. He services them any any mods can be added . I've only had mined serviced twice in 5 years and it shoots great on paper and very consistent on the chrono. Hope this helps but if you need more info just send me a PM
  11. Talking of lubing, I'm sure it was Holly who showed up to a shoot with his pellets swimming in FP10 . He learnt quickly that once the lube gets in the back skirt its game over. "Less is more"

    What's new for 2018?

    I had a TM for a while , couldn't fault it. I think that TM/ISP'S are seen as old tech similar to Ripleys /GC2 which dominated back in the day. Maybe foreign engineering has more sex appeal ?

    What's new for 2018?

    I stand corrected Colin , however, it's still a rare beast amongst FT shooters and i can't work out why ?

    What's new for 2018?

    I could of sold my ISP many times over at the worlds, still surprised i was the only person shooting one at the worlds ?
  15. Your spot on Neil , I'm sure when i shot the worlds in Norway there was less than 100 shooters. It was basically same course which they changed daily . Great times in a beautiful country.
  16. Thanks to the work that the IOW crew have put in it's one of the best shoots in the region. Well worth the trip over and the early morning start .
  17. Agreed with everything Neil and John have said. It was a superb event if you didn't go you certainly missed out. Simon Evans deserves special praise for his tireless work and organisational skills. The 3 minute rule worked well and i can see it happening at GP's ?. For me the opportunity to meet new and old friends and have a shooting holiday is what is all about. The bar has been set very high when the worlds are held in England next.

    The weather at the World's....

    Looking forward to seeing old friends and making new ones. According to the stats I'm the only person shooting an ISP ?

  25. It's going to be tough but enjoyable . You haven't factored in Pressure Holly, but I'm sure it won't get to you ?
