    It is now too much of a coincidence for it not to be something other than luck,
    far too many people have come of the course asking the same question;

    what happened there? :confused:


    the same logical eliminations process of possibilities follow;

    did you clean the barrel, weighed the pellets, checked for parallax error, allowed for wind,looked for vegetation,was it a range trap?

    but shooters are saying it was none of the above,

    When you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be the truth,

    there has to be a "phantom turret twiddler" at work,

    and not content to twiddle turrets, I believe he, or she, put a little twist on shooters silencers, :eek:

    until the Phantom is unmasked, we cannot rule out paranormal activity,or alien intervention. :cool:

    whatever it is, it is something or someone,

    keep your eyes open for strange behaviour and if you think you've been a victim of the Phantom turret twiddler,
    let us know so we can start documenting its activity.

    can you unmask the Phantom?

    We had a phantom turret twiddler at large in this region a few years ago. You didn't dare take your eyes off your rig or someone would spin your windage turret a turn out. That is much harder to spot than the top turret out of position.

    Happened to me twice.

    It's also the reason why at least two members of my club will never take part in league shoots again.

    Sad, but true. :(

    Think this might have happened to a shooter in the Worlds recently.
    maybe Germany ????
    Nothing could be proved. Maybe it was.just something else.
    On day 3 in Lithuania, Craig was 40 clicks out on windage.
    ask Simon Ayers

    I think the phantom was about on Sunday on the Isle Of Wight shoot,he swap the number on target 11 / 12 so I shot them out of turn.
    But he's never been caught. :D
    This phantom does more than twiddle.

    When people ask me why I shoot tin chickens I always tell them it's the camaraderie and the warmth and support shared between fellow shooters.

    Alive and well in Scotland I see.:D

    Your a good man John, and at first glance it does look nasty,

    On the other hand, a few people will find it hilarious and hopefully will be bursting at the seems,

    Like a jolt of electricity that can start a heart, laughter can reach the soul,
    There is a child in all of us,
    denying it is like denying a house has foundations,

    We need trials and tribulations to help us understand who we are.

    Live long and enjoy it,
    Love thy opponent,
    :)
