    Hi Guys and Gals, just a little tip, It may be obvious to some, but for any PCP Shooters, dont forget to take all your charging hoses with gauge attached and all neccessary connectors to fill up with as in past there has been nothing but plain bottles threaded for standard din hoses/whips.
    You will end up dry if you dont.

    Poland have been told to buy at least 3 gauges and Daystate style quick fill adapters.
    I don't know if they have or not though, but it is now a requirement in the rules for hosting a Worlds.

    Not a bad idea to take your own if you have the spare luggage allowance though.

    It's a Foster connector, but most people know it as the connector that Daystate use. You can buy a male Foster adapter to fit onto your FTP fill probe for £6.50 from Best Fittings.

    It's the standard that has been adopted by the WFTF.

    3 should be plenty, they've only got 4 bottles :D

    I only use the older AA Connectors, so i will have mine handy and in case anyone asks, i do not intend to spend 30mins of my time, filling up other shooters rifles. So there!.

    Bring a pump as well then Dave, they've only got 30 6l bottles that they're having filled every night by the fire brigade.
