32/40 is still good given how you shoot your disciplines

Yeah dave but the three sitters i missed . i should not have . none were further than 42 yards . all went high . so two things come to mind . one is that the two O rings in the muzzle brake on the GC2 have hardened . the rifle is a air hungry one . so as the air goes down if the barrel cannot move freely . it boogers up the zero . the other thing that comes to mind is that as i get toward the end of the course , nowadays i get tired . so i may not be putting my head on the cheek piece in the same place every time . if my head is above the cheek piece that would account for the shots going high .  so wednesday i will see if i can see the problem and deal with it . shame but that is FT . not for mugs . ??? HOLLY 

 

PS the two fellas i was shooting with were almost the same age as my rifle .

I got all my standers today and then missed 5 sitters, 4 of them I just gave too much wind on . Spending last Sunday at Springfield resetting the gun up certainly helped the standers felt a lot better, amazing How much difference just playing about with the butt hook made.

Well I found the course to be great, a bit long but set to the forecast which saidvery little wind. Unlike the Carisbrooke round was supposed to be windy but was not.

Great shooting with Tony Elderfield just we both wish it had gone better. Think.we set a trend after the 1st lane getting the closer one and missing the longer one. Both our pellets hit the same spot just different amounts of windage given.

I missed 1 for not dealing after ranging, 1 for actually putting 2 pellets in the barrel and the rest forwindageeither too much or not enough.

At least a short break so practice needed.

Learning something and using it is two different things . there are many ways to get a reading lower . but all you are doing if you use it is to cheat your self . what are your results worth knowing you had a dodgy rifle ? nothing ??? HOLLY

Have another look . the first shot went over at 801 . like a mug i squeezed the next pellet  as i had only done two lanes . the shot was low . the marshal asked for another shot . so i let him load the pellet . and it went through at dead 800 . legal . which is why i say don't do it . not worth it . anyway as we well know now some are putting heavier pellets through the gun to record a lower fps . my answer to that is to have the marshal with a standard pellet . pass the rifle to him and he shoots it . ??? HOLLY 

 

PS only time my rifle has been over was at the very first GP that had a chrono at it . early nineties at Lea Valley . dave welham on the chrono . with a tin of 7.9s and a tin of 10.06  i think it was . it just went over . ( we had no chrono ) you only got one shot . so i had to go and turn it down . to shoot . then you had to go back through the chrono again before going on the course .

I'm also the man who corrected a hit on my card, given to me by my partner Sunday to a miss.

my shooting partner was clarky . and if you have a word with him you will find out it is as i said . let us face it you were wrong about the bum bag and you are wrong about this . seems you are wrong most of the time . but don't let that stop you from writing drivel ??? HOLLY 

 

PS and now i come to think of it . it was you who stirred up the controversy over the kneeling position . so that is another one . anything else you would like to get off your chest .or are journos never wrong .

Nope Hols, It was me. I have the photos!!

​Chrono was in the garden. You put the pellet in for all three shots, the chrono marshal made the comment you had squeezed too hard as you 800+ fps dropped to 740! ,l

You said I have passed and walked off. I remember being shocked a AA grade shooters would do such a thing, being C grade at the time.

Well if you look at the BFTA page . you can see a pic of me cheating . apparently squeezing the pellet to pass the chrono . i am sitting on my bean bag blowing on a pellet . at bisley by the fence at the start of the path down the back . never seen a sitting chrono . he was not shooting with me . he has only ever shot with me as far as i know twice . once  at north somerset . where we had a comp between us for a tenner . he won on postionals . would the comp had gone to the end if i had failed the chrono . no . second time was at tawd vale where i went around with him and gadget his mate . do you really think that the two of em would have not said anything if my gun had failed the chrono . no neither do i . do me a favour simon . ignore me in future and i will def ignore you . have a good life ???

​Squeezing the truth there again Hols, the photo was as requested to show that I was your shooting partner at the 2007 Bisley Gp, where I witnessed as said, your Chrono bypass abilities. Sadly!

​Not going to ignore you, going to watch you very closely!!
