Look on the positives; it was a bright, sunny day, the wind was crisp but minimal and there was plenty of space to spread out on the zero range... ^^
By the way Terry, did the steel plates ever get replaced after those thieving didicoys nicked them all?
God knows how they got them out of there, we bust a gut getting them installed in the first place and even concreted in the posts for added security.

There was 5 of us there, Bazza dropping 3, me 9 and the others 10 or more.
Holly got his excuses book out as he was missing quite a few for wind or dropping low. Even young Melv was getting targets Holly was missing.

Good day was had all anyway.

Most peculiar day . no not a two horse race . more like a runnaway win . shots going low , shots going way past where they should have done , wind wise . to the point where i thought there was something wrong with the rifle . got to three quarters of the way around and went back to the zero range . nothing really wrong i could find without a chrono , cold two below on car temp . ranges coming in two yards short . half inch low past 45 yards .nothing more than i would expect . so dunno investigation coming up ???

Ouch, that's not good, I remember the first time the store hut was cut open and the generator was nicked; funny how it happened within a week of buying the generator and how that was the only thing taken....

It's just all that flim-flam coming back to haunt you...  :atounge:

It sounds like the cold getting into the rifle, is the hammer dry or lubed?; I bet if you had been able to stick the gun over a chrono it would have been well down.

That is the problem with technology, it will only go so far and you look a right idjiot turning up with 'all the gear and no idea' which is commonly how our American cousins are regarded when new into a war zone... ^^

Pity no one got the shot of that one, pure gold.
I do remember a guy in the mid-eighties who used to shoot a '77 and he was always dressed like he was off to some German boar hunt; complete tweed plus fours and braces. He used a three legged milking stool to sit on while shooting to keep his butt out of the mud and on one occasion he fell off this thing into a puddle. Everyone laughed their socks off except this guy who threw his stool down and stomped off the course in disgust.

It's a perspective thing; from your perspective it was a painful slightly humiliating experience, and from everyone else's perspective it was hilariously funny. See easy.

Of course you did and then you woke up right? ^^
I've known you get quite a few 39'rs, tons of 38'rs, but never a clear in a competition? :D
