    I recently learned about this site from a fellow airgunner and I'm currently getting a "lay of the land" here.

    Being a "springer only guy" I enjoy hunter class field target shooting (US style), practice field target shooting at my home reduced Gamo field targets, and even some paper punching.

    Well......I THINK I have a handle on how to post a message and pics so here's saying another howdy to y'all!

    :D Welcome aboard.

    There's a few targets down my local club with that problem... no clue how many have been through it (literally as there's a hole in the paddle now), but we need to get the lump hammer out to beat it flat every now and then.

    Thanks for the kind welcome!

    I've actually considered welding another metal disc to the back of the perforated paddle after pounding it out.

    Hi nced,

    It would be interesting to hear more about FT stateside, I've looked at maybe trying to organise an FT holiday in the US, but first hand information is always better than reading websites.
