    Hi Dave
    There are still quite a few of us kicking around these parts that remember you.
    Are you getting back into the FT comps?

    Good grief a blast from the past. Eyup Dave, I remember you from the early Yorkshire Marksmen days in Gildersome, circa '89!

    Was it a Shamal you had back in the day?

    I had the privalige of shooting round with mfta legend martin Hutchinson at harriers winter league pm session, He beat me by one shot.in mutch tougher conditions than the AM session and only 3 shots off the top score of the easy am session.A true natural shooter, Id love to see the likes of martin and more old school shooters come back to the sport, Real shooters who cut their teeth on springer's (real FT shooters).im sure with a bit of practice they wouldn't be far off the pace of the current standard...!

    Hi Dave it's along time since I last saw you at a shoot. Don't do FT these days prefer crawling round in the mud doing HFT, butnice to see one of the old faces back.

    i think you will find that the level of good seasoned shooters has improve and dont forget shooters who have kept on shooting from 92 have many more years of leaning how to read the wind.But good luck,hope you enjoy the ride.
