    So not too long until we get to LV and a new season starts, so the question is, are we all ready yet or are we still choosing our kit for 2010??? My self, i am having a few probs with the gun...But fingers crossed it will come back better than ever. Scopewise its all looking good. I have a choice off two to use , both being great, one i know better than the other but the other has much better optics ...NO JOKES and yes they are both Hawke's thank you :).

    So how's you lot getting on then?? are you ready??

    Your kidding?? i thought you loved the Wofl? What sort of thing are you looking at boss? have you tried Steyr's, the one i have is great, i dare say somebody that can shoot could do great things with it. There is still time to find something i reckon.

    Pretty much sorted, gun is behaving itself, scope is ace as always(not a Hawke...:D:D) and I've even started weighing up batches of pellets for comps so I don't have to arse about weighing up during the season. all in all, ready to rock:cool: Just want to crack on with it now:)

    Believe me i would not go into this season with rubbish gear. This year i need to do something, after last season...i think i might have coined the phrase" Waste fo Ink" From now on i am working very very hard to up my scores. The Steyr has come good ( many thanks to Dop whom knows far far more about these things than he lets on ) and the scope is fab . I am told that the new BSA is a "Works" and therefore much much better gun that it was . If it does not live up to the hype then sadly its going back. I want the best kit i can afford this year. I was even looking at the Nightforce like Tench's but at the moment the 10X42 looks to be just what i need!!!

    I am happy anyway....How about the rest of you lot then??

    keeping the same kit as last year but giving the shoots a little more thought than last year to try and up my game. Got some personal goals to try and improve my season so bring it on.

    Have a look for Big Bills Dommie Gar, it's the only one big enough to fit Chris!:D We do go to the same club though so you're right on something!:p

    Same kit for me. Just got to practice more, concentrate more and keep on enjoying the shoots however well or poorly I do. ;)

    Might try some different head sizes through the Pro T though. Been using 4.52 Exacts. If any body has a tin of 4.51s and 4.53s they'd be willing to let me have (don't worry, I'm not looking for freebies :D) I'd be grateful. If they had them at the next MHFTA meet that'd be event better! ;)
