    again.

    Ha been getting a bit frustrated recently (well the last 3 months) with my FT rifle just not doing as well as expected so was falling out of love with it. Finally figured out that it was broke at the 1st round of the CSFTA Winter League (reg issue).

    Since then it has been to John Ostler and given a full service and the reg fixed.

    Well today I am back in love with it. Just got back from the club (well about an hour ago) after setting up the rifle with the scope. Had done it last Thursday in a 'borrowed' warehouse so knew the windage was correct and the elevation set up as well but there is always a bit of fine tuning to do as not wearing my shooting clothes and having natural light.

    Managed to produce a 1/2" group at 50yds with 5 shots in a light breeze. Hit a few kneeling targets and 35yd standing targets and am really pleased with the results. Now if I can get the practice form into competition form for the rest of the Winter League I will be most happy.

    Not got soft at all Holly, its just we have 3 rounds of the Winter league next month to travel to and for just one to turn up to a shoot is not really cost effective ( £60 for the trip). In fact I am hoping to shoot at comps every weekend in January :p .
