I think the problem a few have with the gradings is that unless I'm mistaken Simon only replaces shoot scores with like for like, so in an extreme case if you shot 20/40 and never shot another GP that would keep you down forever.

No, he will replaces your oldest shoot with your newest shoot.

However if you don't actually do any shooting and just spend your spare time talking about doing a shoot then your grade won't ever change because talking about grading in FT or just talking about FT isn't graded... which is a shame as some are really good at it, even coming up with excuses as to why the can't shoot which rival the excuses of shooters as to why they can't hit targets :D

I think forum posters should be graded. Thing is I think it's probably unfair on the less prolific posters who only turn up now and then and drop a real nugget into the mix... where as you and I and others who belt feed the internet have quite a high batting average.

Rob, I like to think of ourselves as the forum long-range sniper, letting off the occasional one shot one kill.

With that analogy in mind then Holly is sitting behind a 249 SAW with a huge box of ammo...:)

Rob has a point about current activity on the shooting scene . BUT what is not taken into account is Past activity . experience . if you cannot look into the past , you cannot know whether what you have is a improvement . so here i sit , the past . BUT not past it ??? HOLLY :):thumb:

The problem with only having past experience is you get out of touch with the current .

Those Ladies were anything but....:rolleyes:
