Well, that was a windy one, lots of taking shed loads on one target and going straight on the next, lovely stuff.

Dan and Ian C. topped the day on  34, I felt happy to keep in the threes with a 30...👍

Yes it was a tad windy today. I was happy with my 31 which was better than last weeks efforts with less wind. I found the wind to be predidictable which helped a bit

He's just jealous Si as he spends his entire week tweaking this, gluing that and then finds during testing it makes diddly squat difference.

Whereas your good self just picks the rifle up every couple of weeks, tops it up, uses pellets direct from the tin and yet still puts in half decent scores....:grin:

Well to be honest Holly, I'm a great believer in doing what's right for you.   Some might get on with expresses, some with heavies.  No right or wrong, whatever suits you

 

Personally yesterday was a good test, found some shots where I over egged it and also some where I needed to give more.  Still learning, but most important of all... still enjoying.

Jealous ? nope done all that . like to do a comp now and again GP wise but they are too long and too hot nowadays . the best of it was marshalling and 40 targets . this nowadays is far too slow . as for pellets . go with the flow . 8.4s will remain top sellers i think . mainly cos your range finding must be very good , for the big uns . still who knows perfection may be around the corner ???

Well you will decide to shoot Devon in the middle of a heatwave whilst wearing your winter finest....:grin:

I think you were lucky to survive that to be honest.

I think you have selective memory kicking in there Holls, the only ass-kicking I remember is yours from both myself and my partner in crime the wee canny Scot aka Neil Mac....:grin:

It was either rather sprinting to the car at the Euros or East Devon that would have caused this brain-fade...🤣
