    Thanks to all who turned up and glad you enjoyed the course, I think all agreed it was one of the hardest I ve ever shot and you can see that from the scores.

    Can t believe Steve Lanyman came all the way to Wales and forgot his gun, so he did well sharing with me and Mike Elliott, scope not for his eyes and not used to 35 yard zero.

    Not sure if this has ever happened before but we had one target, stander on peg 1 the “Punisher†head shot, not a single person got it during the comp:eek:

    Chris Get rid of that lightstream, it has massive paralx error and getyourself a EB or a Hawke 10 X 42.

    The hawke is great and it will help you loads

    My brother had a lightsteam ages ago & we thought the same Gary, very good scope for hunting though IMO.

    I tested one a while back Steve and it was shocking, great for shots over 35 yards but anything under 20 and it was all over the place

    I think the wind was the most difficult I've shot in at Quarry , more so than the Extreme in January. The course setters really went to town with this one, congrats to them for a challenging course.

    Well we went to Quarry for some wind practice and my god we got it, every shot was totally different!!! Fun course but unbelievably tricky! Never have I heard so many people laughing about their zeros!! If you didn't laugh you would cry!!

    Well done to the team at quarry for a great course and warm welcome.

    Well what can i say,well for one you are a evil bar steward Mr Sparks what a fantastic course.
    I personally as long as can remember have not shot a course like it,especially with that wind as well,it had the lot,when you got to some pegs i for one just thought fook,this is going to be hard,and one of the free standers made some shooters CRY me for one.

    Thanks Quarry for a fantastic shoot today you should all be proud.

    Not strictly true Gary, What appears as massive parallax error on a Lightstream is due to the fact that they have a massive field of view & you can move your head quite a bit sideways & still see the image.

    However for the sort of movement we experience in HFT then the Lightstream gives less Parallax error than the EB Sniper when set at the same mag & Parallax setting. This was tested on a jig that allows the same amount of sideways head movement each time rather than wiggling your head until the image disappears.

    I see your point Pete, However, when we were looking at the light stream we found that with a floating head it was very hard to get a consistant group.

    For a very talented shooter I think the Lightstream could be a good scope, it has great optics, But, the EB and the Hawke have such a tight snap in snap out as long as you can see the kill through the scope you should kill it.

    All I know is I am not good enough to shoot a lightstream

    I'm not sure I see what you mean though Gary as for the same head movement the lightstream has less error than the EB, that is of course assuming they are both parallaxed to the exact same distance.

    Were you using the same gun with exactly the same scope height, if not then any head movement when shooting won't have been the same unless the cheek piece was adjusted accordingly

    Thanks Pete, I don't think it is the scope or the gun and if i was getting parralax error I certainly would not have knocked over two of the 4 standers today one of which was 35yds. I did shake hands with Laity last time I saw him, think I caught what he had:eek::eek::D:D:D
