SEFTA WL Round 6 - 13th January....

Recommended Posts

So hot on the heels of Springfield this weekend our next adventure is in the wind-blasted glades at ETL next Sunday.

Hopefully there will be less bugs next weekend and spring will kick in early to give us a lovely sunny day...one can only hope!

Sounds more like that you were dropped of by something a bit bigger than a stork and are in fact not a Hollingdale but a Hollinbattenberg a well-known branch of Germanic cave-dwellers hence the height advantage passed down through successive Hollinbattenbergs....:grin:

After he'd missed about 6 of his first 10 targets he was considering running up to the van and getting it as he didn't have a clue if it was the rifle or scope playing up.

Going through the chrono showed that the rifle was where it was supposed to be (for that shot at least) so it must be the Nikko finally crashing it's gears.

Only if you're going to buy it for him.

The Mk.1 Nikko that Steve was using was bought off Ebay after going through numerous (careful) owners over the past decades.

I put it to Steve that he needed to finally bite the bullet and get a 9015 and Delta Stryker and I thought he was going to have a seizure....:grin:

Well, straight edge and vernier out today and, touching wood, I might have sorted it, just needs zeroing now.

Nat is on a roll at the moment; the switch to heavies really seem to be working well for her which is good leading up to the Worlds in August.

I’m still diseased, worst night ever coughing last night but hopefully it will have abated a bit by Sunday so I can enjoy my current romp with lightweights. 

Siy-co just seems to have hit a bit of a sticky patch, but that might have more to do with Christmas celebrations than anything else.

Keith is on a break as he has bought a new bike trainer apparently in an effort to tackle some of the Rock’s hills....😉

As holly would say I was luckyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy 😉

 

Seriously though, just enjoying shooting, taking one target at a time and the rough with the smooth.
