    I'm probably one of the others but I can think of another few who would be interested. Cheers. Hal

    Not to get too technical for you Lloyd but surely the point of an indoor range is that there isn't any wind??? :eek:o:eek:o:eek:o:eek:o

    Of course it is but doesn't help to zero a rifle as bench resting isn't sitting on a cussion :rolleyes: And what I ment with my comment that only I found funny... was your chairgun only works indoors so that would be perfect for you so need to take to heart.:rolleyes:

    If sitting on a bench and sitting on a bag gave the same aim point think everyone would be doing it ....:eek:o:eek:o:eek:o:eek:o:eek:o:eek:o Come on guys get all your views on this one!!:D

    ....but these guys didn't say it had to be bench rest, I take your point about that. But if you could zero your rifle at 50 yards, in an FT sitting position, indoors, that would be very useful.

    I'm not discounting the need for real practice, indeed alot of it and on a variety of FT courses but the ability to get your gear set up at an indoor FT plinking range has surely got to be a real advantage.

    I would be interested in this for a few sessions. I guess Leicester isn't too far.

    Cheers

    again its just personal choice we can all shoot a pellet straight indoors or out of course wind outdoors is a pain but as long as you can put pellet on pellet taking wind into account and seating position there is no difference :) but of course everyone will have there own views im just going by what ive been told by ft shooters who have been doing it for years im new to it id rather listen to people who know more than I do .

    I think the benefit of shooting indoors, would be to check your windage is spot on, You can also check to see if you have any crossover....:rolleyes: Lets face I would never zero a gun at the greyhound the wind is all over the place...indoors for windage would be my preferred choice all day long;)

    Point taken but its never that windy to affect my ten yard windage well at least most of the time it isn't..:rolleyes: I think I was lucky at the greyhound on the zero range I shot there 7 days a week but there are always the not so windy days never helped around the course but to zero never really a issue.:)
