    I would just like to say well done to Richard on his brilliant 57 at Cambridge yesterday .it was his first outing with his new gun from Impact Air . He only picked it up at the end of last week, quickly bolted on his scope Saturday eve had a quick zero up and his first time trying on a course was at Cambridge the following day! A testament to his ability and also to the gun thats pretty impressive stuff! Apparently it was "shockingly accurate" l believe this gun could be one to add to your wish list judging by Richards grin when he came home that eve!;):D

    He shot it very well & the diy butt pad modifications worked a treat! ;) Impact guns have come a long way from the "made in a shed" look of rapid 7's of old! Nice looking gun:D

    Having a new rifle is no big deal Jen, he could beat me with a spud gun!
    Fair play to him though! :D

    Richard are you using Jennys account again!

    But credit where its due, that was good shooting with a new gun! Seems all the top spots were filled by factory fresh new rifles on their maiden outing.

    looking at the mix of makes at the top of the leader board I think it
    proves its who behind the gun and not what gun it is

    Most would agree with this, Greg Morss his signature says it all (it's the Indian not the arrow).
