    P.C.


    I remember the shapes of targets changing because of this but didnt think it wouldnt have harmed painting the targets?? We paint the Nelson sheep everytime we use her haahaa.

    Nothing like having a signature target on a course if you ask me, makes you have a giggle like the old Hedgehog at Newbury, that always scared people haahaa or Snappy at Tondu...

    Oh Holly,

    You can be such a touchy person, Im sure the time when you could remember that you couldnt remember what you did yesterday.

    Seems like dementia is starting to set in bless him. Hope he doesnt wee himself now as often as he used to bless him......

    great article, seems a shame there's not a bit more "over the pond" interaction. Would like to be able to shoot a 20flb, must have been some wind to blow a pellet out of kill at 50yds using that kind of power.

    that kind of power:( its only a 10.5 doing around 925fps wind will move most things;)

    Most US shooters shoot at about 865 to 890 with 10.3's. With my Steyr it seems that over 900 I lose accuracy.
