    Hi all

    We have a few new shooters at the club , some are new shooting and others new to hft which I think is a positive for any club .

    Anyway I was doing my usual by waiting for everyone to run out of pellets so I could have the range to myself as I needed to set out my targets for a new range card . Derek the gaffer said that a few of the chaps would like to see how to do a simple range card so we set 4 lanes out at 8,10,12,13,15,20 and 25 yards on the indoor range and placed a target accompanied by a 10 mm knockdown for every shooter .

    It was great to see the the aim points work on the 10 mm after we all checked them on paper , I like to practice at all ranges with a reducer as that way I know the aim point is right on that specific distance ... its a good confidance booster anyway if nothing else !

    Sorry to preach to anyone but this could well be worth half an hour of your time to get newbies used to aim points using a simple method ie : aim for the line and read off the mil dots etc

    I actually really enjoyed the evening especially as it seemed to help us all ... I just hope that the weekends comp only has targets out to 25 yards !!! lol

    Dave, I'll take a pic of the one my brother used at the Worlds, they don't get much simpler than that one. I thinks it's even on the back of a fag packet too!

    No, no, he does shoot HFT sometimes Pete, not sure if he can read his own card though as he still misses alot :D


    Anyway, if he shoots badly tomorrow he already has an excuse lined up I believe ;):p

    Oh I see , pick on the little bloke :p

    Pete it's true I do sometimes shoot hft but not as much as I would like tbh - I have had to stop all my meds atm and am shaking like a rampant rabbit and feel sick as a dog so Ford tommorow should be great fun to say the least :eek: lol

    Steve you must be in front of me on the SIHFT stats then or you would be as quiet as .... well as quiet as you have been since it started . lol

    Please don't turn this forum into a place of banter , being a chav Steve is nothing to be proud of mate and being a Welsh chav is worse than being a Vicky Pollards lesbo half brothers bi sexual dog .

    PS : I would like to make Bisley and or Basingstoke Pete
