    Some of you may have seen the thread running on this forum in the Hunter/Field/Paper target section entitled "BFTA Meeting".

    This discusses the changing of kill sizes and Andy wondered what peoples thoughts were and if they would like us to put out a couple of 15mm kills to 25 yards, some 25mm to 35 yards and also maybe try out a 25mm kneeler at the Anston Champs or whether you would prefer it to be left as it was?

    Over to you for discussion!!

    I Si i do not mind you giving the small kills a whirl providing you break Andy's arms and legs to stop him climbing them bleeding ladders last time i saw anything to the hights he goes there was a bean stalk.

    Well Mr Higgins Sir, I think it would attract ME. And as far as Mr Calpin climbing the tree's then hell, im all for it! if he climbs as high as he can he may fall out the top and not be able to put anymore moon shots up lol

    Seriously, sounds a good days shoot. Count me in.

    If there is a foot of snow then all the targets need to be up the tree's. LOL

    Think a few reducers might be good, mixes it up a bit eh.

    I've never shot a bad course at Anston no matter what the targets were, or where they were...tell Andy to put out what he wants, it's not a BFTA or NEFTA comp is it? So it doesn't have to conform to any rules? I'll be there too, snow permitting.:D

    Hi Paul if Andy sticks to your ideas a had best check my 100 yard zero, as you say andy puts good courses out and i think The Anston Championship is one of my favourite's of the year my prediction is there will be a sharp frost for the last half dozen or so times i have shot this one there has always been a good frost.

    As an extra side shoot, there will also be a Metal Plate Shoot - mainly a CO2/ multishot pistol event. This is being organised by Richard Harley (Badger) and sounds great fun. This is how Richard sums it up:-

    There are five plates, four white and one red. They are 10" square, so easy to hit.

    The aim, if you will pardon the pun is to shoot the whites in any order, then the red one last.

    This movie shows a similar shoot.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FYF5...feature=related

    Each stage is shot five time per shooter, the worst time of the five is dropped, and the average of the remaining four gives your recorded time.

    It's very addictive, and easy to get into.
    Its easy to get competitive, and really difficult to shave small fractions of a second off the average.


    So come along and give it a go
