I'm with Simon, it is what I was told when I first started shooting FT. Mind, the bloke who told me really didn't have much of a clue what he was talking about, only having won three World FT Championships.

​All top end rifles are much the same. All need sorting to some degree to get the best out of them. Once that's achieved they all will do a 5p group at 55y on a still day. None has any real advantage over the other, its just some shooters prefer X over Y. The reasons for choosing a gun can be many!!

 

Only time your against another is the Showdown, which is one of my fav weekends of the year.

Very true, Holly has attended quite a few over the decades to hand over a bye 2nd round.

I shot my nut's off over best part of the 18 years i was in the showdown . but after about ten years you realise it is not a gonna happen . so you shoot well in the first round . shoot the second . get your badge and go home . simple . 

 

Yes i will agree Neil , that Nick did shoot like that BUT nobody else does . i remember at a big shoot Bainsee put hancox with me cos he knew i would wind him up . needless to say . bainsee won it . Now That Is FT ??? HOLLY

OK not much time shooting or set up time . as it rained on and off all day . still it was good to get the old boy out and let it get a sniff of some targets . old herman the german . Gott in himmel . you swinehund . you call that shooting he said . you were shooting like a scotsman , he said ( meaning rubbish ) . set up quickly but then found that when i got to sitting . the scope was too far forward . Dohhhhh . start again early tomorrow . ??? HOLLY

Well today was getting up and down day . into the sitting position and then up again . trying to get some method of doing it without looking like i was gonna fall on my face . not a gonna be easy . tied to bean bags tied together . one to place the rifle on and sit down with out it . nope gets twisted / dirty in the mud . will work on it sunday . decided to sell my 40 mag . as in my knackered state it is taking too long to find the target . then look away , adjust the turret and find it again . without magging down . it was OK before i had the hip done . but at the mo cannot get a good rested position naturally to use it properly . maybe get another 20=50 . maybe not . the scope has a taylor top turret . a mill dot ret . fitted in germany . comes down to just past 10 yards . rowan silver adjustable ;pointer . , sunshade . the small jon harris sidewheel  , which suits it perfectly . range finds well . optics very good . boxed . no longer made . so hard to get a good one . looking for £ 850 plus post ??? HOLLY

Right practice today at the club . good day lovely weather and some good shooting , BUT could be better . getting up and down has become easier since i remembered how i actually used to do it . seems a silly thing to say . but it has been nearly a year since i used the sitting position properly . did most of my shooting kneeling . once i got that sorted it was trigger control and stability . slowly getting there , ???

Fresh air will do you good mate. I was just listening to the radio and a Walsall FC fan had booked a hotel 11 miles from Portsmouth for there footy game today turns out the hotel was on th rock lol. Are you doing / going the euros / worlds old boy? Shot Millride club shoot today which was very windy 20/30 and was quite happy with that! It was a head to head which is big kill and mini kill in each lane, the usual couple of 60 yarders as well for good measure.
