    Nice guy, Derek. I wish him all the best for the future.

    Any time he wants to bring his Segway to Bisley and let me bomb around on it again he's more than welcome! :)

    From Derek...

    Hi Folks. First I should like to thank all the people who wished me well and a long retirement. Your comments were much appreciated.
    When I decided to wind down I had over 100 field target bases and around 150 front silhouettes. It has always been my practice to keep these separate and assemble as orders came in. Also the silhouettes are used for the practice versions as well. I have now sold out of bases. There is a temptation to put another 100 into the system but then I would run out of links or pivots and with the ongoing welding problems I have stopped.

    A number of people have contacted me interested in taking over Nockover Targets. I am looking into this but the outcome of future manufacture will not be decided until I come back from holiday 2 September. Watch this space?? Derek Peckover
