    I had a bit of bad news on the health front recently, nothing terminal, but enough to lose me my job and, at my age, I'm not going to get another easily. So I've decided to take a break until this health thing is resolved. Hopefully, it'll be within a year.............

    So...having 'retired', I've spent some of my pension lump sum on new toys, I have time on my hands and intend to practice much and then more. I have to thank a board member on here for selling me his pride and joy, I won't mention his name, he'll comment if he wishes. However, very many thanks for a very easy deal to a thoroughly nice chap :)

    I'm looking forward to meeting some of you in next years GP series, I'm going to all of them, health permitting. I'm also shooting as many SEFTA winter league shoots as I can manage as an individual entrant this coming season.

    See you there :)

    Oh, yes. I have an FTP900 and a Leopold PR 20-50 and it's the absolute bollocks :D

    Cheers
    Barry

    Best wishes and hope our paths cross

    Barry,

    Just wanted to say best wishes on your early retirement "project", hope the root cuase gets sorted.

    I am new to all this as well and no spring chicken so hopefully we can learn together, maybe do battle in Grade C or what ever.

    See you in the "butts" one day!

    Hi John, thanks for the good wishes. I wish I were new to it all. I've been arseing around FT for maybe ten years on and off (I've still only managed B grade, and I mean 'only' in an 'only just' way) :rolleyes:

    This time I mean it though ;) See you soon for that 'battle'

    Cheers
    Barry

    Apologies misunderstood, (should have read the title) the clue is in the word Back!

    Still hope to cross swords when I am good enough. I am only 10 months in and just about to start competing in the SW series. Wish I had found it 10 years back, ever so slightly adictive.

    Only competed in LSR, turning target and precision rifle at the mo.

    The formula 1 of shooting has taken some time to get to grips with. Taken awhile to get the sitting, kneeling sorted enough not to make a fool of myself.
