    Really miss shooting atm :( one thing after another stopping me from shooting lately and I can't wait to get back even if its just for a bit of plinking !

    A lot of politics have annoyed me with our sport recently , a couple of things outside of the comps especially but thats neither here nor there :cool: The truth is that regardless of comps , plinking , hunting ,10m indoor , hft and all the other disciplines I just miss SHOOTING :shot::shot::shot:

    I have set up my new HFT gun and haven't even zero'd it but really fancy shooting at the weekend ... do I shoot another comp totally unprepared or do I sit at home polishing my gun ?

    Perhaps I should shoot and bribe young Jack ( junior shooting partner ) with a bag of jelly babies for a clear round :D:D:D

    Thanks I feel better already !

    I am with you on that one :cool:

    as long as we fling some lead (safely), it matters not a jot how we do it :D or under what 'discipline' - knob twiddler, mud bather, or bell basher et al

    One of the fundamentals of the site :)

    As far as politics go, I think everyone can be enthusiastic to a fault... but the enthusiasm is normally the underlying drive... i am often humbled by just how much work people continue to put in despite the normal human grumbling that gets sent up the chain... something i'm guilty of now and then.

    I've just been speaking to Roger at the BFTA, who carries the chair, and in addition to that he's sorting out the booking in for this weekend, then driving down the day before to set up the course etc... at the end of the day there's all the season's scores and placings to sort... and then the BFTA still have to handle the grumbles of the day or the season. No matter if their justified or not, you need a hell of a skin and a set of shoulders to do all this stuff for others.

    Apart from my club's shoot (which I only sort once a year) I tend to breeze in and out (apart from the club's politics) so i do have a pang of guilt now and then when i sit there a bit knacker'd and it dawns on me how many hours others must have put in and how knacker'd they must be as well...

    So it's hard to seperate passions from something people are so clearly passionate about, so getting stuck in and having a good shoot is goal no.1... no matter what discipline it is... after all that's the whole point.

    So stop polishing ! :D

    I think we are all guilty of moaning or getting fed up with shooting , it happens with most people in most pastimes I would imagine ( except ladies beach volleyball ) . :D

    I sometimes get cheesed off that others take credit for things I have done but that really does make me a pre madonna in the worst sense :eek: the truth is that if trying to help our sport/youngsters/clubs etc I would no doubt be an Olympic gold medalist but we do things because we want to and not for a pat on the back !

    I can't wait to get back even if it's as range officer .... yes lads I miss you all . lol
