    Tinkering and Practice

    Yes I think andy was being a bit too nice with the new lane . the mini is a bit close and the long one , well not long enough . when i sat down to shoot the mini . i had a look at the trees and the back of the swamp . very deceptive range wise . by eye it is " your joking " by scope , it is , can't be . interesting . the hard bit will be skirting the swamp to get to the tree . you don't mess with our swamp . sunday i think we can sort it ??? HOLLY PS yes andy did well for the conditions . i need a fraction more stability .

  4. Seeing as there is some sort of big music festival on the weekend over here, with about 4 bands I have heard of, I have a few extra days off work. So off to the club I went to have a tinker with the course and some practice. Tinkering was sorting put some strings as some do not actually go straight there but wonder around first. I then added a new lane after a bit of brush clearing. Not long but have the potential for an interesting couple of targets. After some tea drinking and some Holly baiting I headed out to practice. With a total of 41 targets out that could be seen, the others hidden by leaves, ferns or nettles, wind was a bit gusty and changing in directions. I started at the top of the hill were the first 6 lanes are and then worked my way down.on the next six. On the first 6 I missed only 1, a black faceplate which I missed due to giving the wrong side for wind. It was the longer and the pellet moved about 2" right compared to the majority on the previous lanes going about 1-1.5" left. The next 6 lanes are about 90 deg from the first 6 lanes and I missed 2 a near 35yd 25mm reducer and then a few lanes on a 24yd 15mm. Both me due to moving, bad technique as they went high. So 24 target shot and 3 misses, 4 standers in there and all down. The last 17 targets are on the flatter part of the ground, 2 standers, one on each lane as the others covered, here as well. Did not miss a single one here so finished on a 38/41. Pleased that the light running I am doing 3 times a week seems to be helping. Talking to Holly afterwards the the ones I missed he got but I got the ones he missed, not sure how many he dropped at the end. Wind was definately moving direction on each lane with the trees and bushes in full leaf making it difficult to read at time. Had a few that I gave just inside edge to see the pellet land there even with strings and bits of leaves indicating otherwise. Think on Sunday might have to have a bit of a challenge by having a 90 seconds on a lane. After I have moved a couple of the targets of course. All in all happy with the day and hoping it will continue for Bisley.
  5. Ok took the bull by the horns tonight and did IT ? yes i drilled the butt for a swivel stud . a nervous affair it was too . but done now . finally found somewhere that sells . accessory rail mounted sling studs ( rowan ) . so i can fit a sling to try to add one more thing to the search to try to steady me on the sitters . while i was at it . i thought i would try something to make the trigger better . the action on this rifle is pulled down into the stock and i have wondered if the trigger mech was touching the stock some where along it's route ( i have had this before , in some pups ) anyway i believe that by putting a washer under each stock bolt . and raising the action a small amount . i have lightened the trigger considerably . sunday will tell . fingers crossed ???

    I agree with nats and say if the info is there then please show me rob, saves we requesting the information on forums. The bfta events don't lend themselves to getting pics etc of people with trophies as to be fair those who shoot am session are long gone as the results are announced - so as with wrecker I need a pic of him with trophy from wales, I think he said he was on holiday for next shoot so can't obtain the pic until Dorset and the info is then well known about. With regards talking to shooters what would you like to discuss? There's me and Kevin Sayers you can now talk to - so talk away. Matt

    I'm sure 99% of the field managed to get more than 16/50 over the three days, which just leaves you as the 1%. How does it feel to be a minority...

    Yes, from you many times. Amazing how you were also robbed all through the nineties by people filling out your cards wrong, not paying officials enough, sleeping with the Chief marshal's wife et al. I mean at this rate you could write a book with all this stuff, ah hold on....
