    As on another post I think its agreat idea and when we get our own class in the UKAHFT this could be immpemented soas not to put added pressure on ones heart.
    If you shoot the wrong target by forgetting which number you have got to on the course ,then I think its only right that we should be allowed to shoot the right one if its been pointed out within the 3 mins allowed per shot.
    I will grant you that the 3 stikes per shoot should be brought in as it will take to long ,and before you comment on the time thingy dont forget our shooting season [The OLDIES } only lasts from May to Aug as we cant get up and down in the cold wet months .

    You could just make Tena compulsory Pete... it's made being on a peg close to Charles much less noxious since it was introduced in Sussex! :D:p:)



    Just joking Charles we know you have that particular problem under control now ;)

    Wee I can cope with, as long as they don't stand over me and drip when I'm shooting prone:mad:. The creaking of old joints and constant moaning about the youth of today/nostalgia are what put me off! The grunting or little suppressed scream that they do when getting up or down from the prone position! I reckon if we co-ordinate them properly we will recreate the backing for Paul McCartney's Frog Chorus.;):p

    Stannah are apparently developing a rangemat in conjunction with Rangesports... it's inflatable... you lean against it and it deflates and lays you down in position... when finished, you press a button and it inflates to stand you up. Motorised gun trolleys are on the horizon...

    And home help have agreed to bring lunches after shooters have done 10 lanes, then they can have 15min nap before they finish the course:cool:

    I'll have you know that smell, as you call it, is my aftershave, perhaps spraying it down my trousers was not a good idea ;).

    Tena pants

    some very good points ,just checked their web site and they do a very good pant for the whole bladder weakness ,sounds like a big problem getting up and down with that straped to your leg

    If you strap it to your leg you CANNOT use your Tena pant as a supporting aid for kneelers.... 3 strikes and a marshall will pop it and you go home soggy!

    yet again more abuse

    the smell comes from the AVON Skin So Soft, a mozzie repellent used by fishermen worldwide
    Take no notice of Tantrum there has never been abit of colouring on my hair in my life not like the silver fox as old Tantrum would never play golf in the wet incase the old dye ran down his face .
