    At a recent shoot a couple of us were discussing behaviour on a shoot and it was pointed out a list of ettiquette rules would be a good idea as laid down rules are one thing but i am sure we all have bug bears that annoy us . so to start of here are a few i have thought of
    feel free to add or comment

    1) always reset target (dont assume your mate will)

    2) don't crowd someone shooting ( it is not a race to finish)

    3) if you miss don't take another 5 shots muttering that you are just zeroing ( one for you nick:D)

    4) point out to a fellow shooter if he/she is about to break a rule 'not touching post etc' (serious comp' excluded)

    5) don't winge about the handicap system (or just buy a .22 springer:D)

    Heres a great one as you say Martin :)

    If you plate a target ( especially a reducer ) don't keep taking shots to see where you hit or didn't hit for the following reasons :

    It splatters the target for the next shooter making it even more difficult to see thus making it a more difficult target than the one YOU MISSED !!!

    Oh and you don't get a 2 just because you hit it on the fourth attempt either !!!

    Another good one is to never say a negative word about anything airgun related especially in HFT - you may have learned by your mistakes as a head strong pro active moaner and as a result are more subdued and helpful but the moment anything happens in your club you will get tarred with the same sticky brush as the moaner .

    Perhaps the best one of all though is , IF YOU MISSED , YOU MISSED simple as that - a nought isn't shaped as a two even in poncy japanese David Beckem writing ( The writing on his left arm has his sons DOB followed by the words ' kiss my koi carp ' - you've been warned ) lol :D
