    is it worth fitting a adjustable butt pad and hook on a s400 thats used for FT?

    In short...Yes.

    I use one on all my guns now and it feels lacking if there isn't one there.
    Some would say you don't need them at all !
    So perhaps it's a personal thing ?
    It's worth trying though and see what you think yourself.

    There is a chap at Emley who makes them. John Healy. If i remember he has an advert in the cabin with pictures and contact details. I am very happy with the one i got from him for my MPR. he was charging 75 which i thought was great value.

    Trying to upload a pic from ipad without success. Pm me your email address if you want me to send you any pics

    yes i was going to get john healy to make one if people thaugt it was worth it.

    even if i dont use the hook the pad has got to be useful or they wouldent sell them on ev2's etc

    every one has them on custom stocks etc so they must be worth doing and at £75 its not overly expensive, maybe it can push me to 25 out of 30

    butt hook

    Hi "speed"

    I think its all a matter of what suits you.
    I have 6 guns and 5 of which have butt hooks so you could say I like them.
    The cost of them varies quite a bit and to get hold of a good second hand one (at the right price ) can take a bit of time.
    My favourite is the "ally Ginb" it's not as adjustable as some but with all the engraving it looks a dream (I have two, one not even fitted to a gun) but they are snapped up the second they come on the market.

    As for the "John Healy " you refer to, I was looking at one today and as an engineer I cane tell you that I would not like to make a copy of one for that price.

    A word of warning though .. the lad who's I looked at said that the surface finish was as what you get from "stock bar" so be prepared to put a little time and elbow grease into it if you want it to gleam !!

    BUT STILL WELL WORTH THE MONEY !!!!!

    all the luck in finding one

    Steve

    P.S. as for improving your scores................?
    I would suggest practice then practice and then ,
    MORE PRACTICE !!!!!!!



    and if that doesn't work...

    Practice some more or

    GIVE UP !!!!!
