    A day to appreciate the November weather; and the people.
    Lots of good banter.

    Indeed. You've hit the nail on the head. :D:D:D:D

    I've been down to the indoor range (25yds) this evening.
    Shot standers. 3 details (30 shots ~ though I shot nearer to 40)
    I was pleased with the result. Took the 10+1 circle out.
    Quite a number I missed on Sunday were due to me me not reading the wind correctly. It was quiet in the morning. I mentally, decided that there was no wind, and most often didn't allow for it. A learner.
    :rolleyes: :eek:o :eek:
    I hope to prove that I've learned at Greyhound. :)

    Thank you Rob. But as Phil says ........ :D :rolleyes: :)

    Having said that, I started on a tin of AA diablos this morning ~ as a comparison to the Super Fields.
    Initially I was very impressed, though I suspect that they may throw my turret clicks out of the window.
    They did suggest that it may follow the graph on Chairgun. (negative [-3] at 25 yds)

    Back to the range tomorrow. Then we'll see. :)

    camera never lies

    Jack your pictures are catching a few images of bad gun handling and incorrect kneeling positions at our winter leagues.:mad: I recognize that`s not why your taking the pictures as your only trying to take 'action shots' of the day. Not sure what we can do about stopping it but at least your photography is condemning evidence of it happening.

    One easy remedy is for me to stop taking kneeling shots Andy.
    I appreciate that it doesn't solve your problem, as a BFTA official, but .......
    Unfortunately I'm not sufficiently proficient to be able to identify what is, or is not, good handling/positional shooting. So selecting which camera shot to take, or not take, would at the moment, be difficult for me.

    Inversely, if shots which I've taken can be provided as proof of 'error' to an approachable shooter, then please feel free to download. However, I don't want to be labelled as a 'spy-in-the-camp'. :eek:

    Ironically, Neale, my partner on Sunday, corrected me on my second kneeling shot, using my bum bag.
    Not in an authorative manner at all ~ rather very generously, providing advice, not admonition.
    He explained the rules to me and suggested better use of the bag, to comply with the rules. And, incidentally, I found it more comfortable. :rolleyes: :)
    I even hit one of the targets. :D (though we did both agree that it was probably a fluke) :):)
