    Well done to all those who shot today, thanks for making the trip up to ours :):)

    It was certainly more tricky than things first appeared, between the sun, fog and breeze. Hope you all enjoyed it, the big change took a bit of doing!!

    I even won the raffle as well. I won't make too much of the fact that Wayne dropped a shot as a result of not calling a target when he needed to, he didn't seem too bothered (much!!!!!!).

    Hi
    thanks to the lads at Thorn Dell for todays shoot and to Bill and Frank for the great compamy.

    Found the targets 19 & 20 a bit too hard, I suppose if like LUKE SKYWALKER you have the adility to " USE THE FORCE !" it would have been fine but I find it hard enough to hit the targets I can see !! and if the conditions where the same for ever one I would have no problem but I shot the targets again later after I'd finished and had no problem with them

    Might be worth thinking about where the sun is going to rise.

    Many thanks ,

    So less stoppages ( potentially ) , firing of a dodgy pellet off etc ( with consent of your partners of course ) , contested target ( to which you would be asked to shoot the target again by a marshal ) ?

    So ?...............?

    30 targets = basically 30 shots unless you have an instance of the above ?

    Correct ?

    Just asking, thanks .

    Can you just clarify as well please , according the the BFTA rules nothing can be added to the rifle once the competion has commenced ??

    Is this also correct ?

    Well this is from the NEFTA shoot rules currently on their site:

    iii. Fully adjustable Rifle Stocks are permitted to accommodate various shooting styles and
    positions with no limitation as to design. Attachments are not permitted to be added or
    removed during the course of the event. (Except in cases related to i.b. above).
