    There will be hundreds, nay, thousands, who doubt my words, but after Sunday's force 5 to 6 and all the buffeting, showers and rain, this afternoon was so different.

    I picked up a second hand BSA Ultra yesterday and after a little bit of TLC I took it to the range to try it out.

    It was DRY. :)

    It was CALM.:eek::eek:

    The little Ultra - from a bench - was one-holing with Mossies at 45 yards every time. Out to 55 yards and we had maybe half an inch of drift, no more.

    What a good job we had the league shoot on Sunday, otherwise today there would have been some high scores........:D:D
