    'Evening all', looks like a good forum,time will tell.:rolleyes::D.
    I shoot rifle and lately, pistol coming up as a good second discipline.;)
    The thing about pistol I find; is having shot single handed (paper) weaver style (early 80's with FT) and quite successful against some top shots,I wanted to do something more challenging and different.A bit more raw and up front with little margin for error :eek:.
    I'm now into pistol HFT the hard way,:D:rolleyes: LVAGC style??:confused: no support, all standing and head to head,'put up or shut up':mad:,anything legal, no preconceived ideas, only the ability to be good enough in your class against those who think (sometimes they are right too) they are better than you are,shown in the end in the final scores.No hiding.:p here.
    Funny thing is that shooting pistol helps you improve trigger control, and breathing as well,can't be bad.:).
    Give it a try its different but the same :confused: 'ADDICTIVE'.

    I like to shoot both (rifle and pistol that is)

    I shoot with my rifles standing so my scores are pretty Crap! but I still get a great deal of satisfaction when a really distant tin chicken falls over,

    The company is also great, I score a bit better with a pistol as 6/10yds is fairly easy really especially with a scoped HW40,

    I also have a S&W Mod 386 gasser, a Webley junior, HW45 .22 good for 25yds and more, and a 32ftLb (trigger pull) Chinky Plinker which is quite fun :rolleyes:

    Rifles sub 12 ft/lb for serious shooting, 6ft/lb pistols are for fun/garden plinking. Give me a 9mm Browning/Sig/Glock and that's a serious hole in the target;):cool:

    I used to have a massive collection of pistols and some top end Morini match guns but found the old school ethos of pistol shooting in a run down club rather depressing . A lovely old lady there was 89 years of age and the only person older was Fred and he was dead ....... he sank lower into the old settee every week until one day he disappeared .

    Anyway I didn't like rifles but thought I would give it a go and I am very pleased I did , I would still like to get another match pistol for occasional use as its a good discipline to learn .
