    Welsh ringers were in abundance at gp 2:D

    [​IMG]

    This one the midges found very tasty, must have been the Ginger flavour?

    At his point I would ike to Thank RobF for my S-T.B badge. I am so pleased with it, I left out the "Bad" shots of you and just put these best ones in.


    Please uses these if needs be to demonstrate in Real Airgun sport how to take Standers

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    And then perhaps next months article can be what sort of faces you can pull when you miss A (nother) Stander

    The shot was so bad, Rob's Eyes fell out in protest:eek:

    [​IMG]




    You know you have upset someone when they book you in with two Nelson shooters, especially if one is Berty!


    [​IMG]



    Hi Berty

    [​IMG]

    Dont forget Berty, keep an eye on your windycater, dont want you having a Big Dave

    [​IMG]




    Little Jack was on for a podium place until he doube dinked the last lane. Got all standers & Kneelers though, well done.

    [​IMG]




    The trouble with gp shoots is that you can drop those vital points late on!

    [​IMG]


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]





    Only missed one sitting target all day, we wont talk about the three standers!

    [​IMG]




    Some owners like to bring their best friends to the shoots

    [​IMG]

    Very good show.

    Only a few cause???

    A? it started to rain so the cannon had to be rushed away

    or

    B? you had to practise your standers before the pm session???



    Bloody rain! :D

    Be warned, cameras a plenty should be out at gp 3!!

    I see I am now the Lucky Artist, that must relate to my unusually high Gp scores ?

    It takes skill, experience and timing to capture Rob looking so daft on standers with a Camera so cant be that?

    No your right, it happens so often any one could do it:p

    Dunno... just didn't get in the camera groove. Think i'm still obsessing about the new scope...

    In defence of the hanging watches, a lot of the local lads had their own. But yep, i've seen it before. Plenty of marshals on the course though, so i guess words would have been had. Thing is, I shoot better knowing what time I have rather than not. I do get annoyed with myself when I get distracted and forget to read out the time for my partner for that very reason.

    Many stopwatches were faulty so replacements were given out, I guess the originals were left languishing on the posts.

    Cant say i thaught shooting was slow, pm session seemed to fly past. Were there any reports of shooters going over?

    A.m. was held up by i presume faulty targets early on for the first hour or so? It went quiet after that though?


    i prefere to take the watches with us from lane to lane, but we did not have any faulty ones am session.

    It is interesting that I wasn't the only one to notice hanging stopwatches. However I did notice a lot of groups did indeed have their own watches with them. I even remembered to take mine!

    I don't think people know if they should leave the watch on the stand or take it with them, that's why I try and remember mine now, plus it seems to work a bit better, it counts s l o w l y.....:D
