    Apparently someone said they had one, and someone else said they could rewrite it... which means it needs to be written in the first place.

    Mine from weekend : Gun was at 30 bar when I went to fill it.

    Someone elses : I've worked 80 hours (although it was suspected that this is the total amount they may have ever worked)

    Hi Rob. I believe Brian Samsons keeping a book.
    He's on his second volume. Hehe. I am in it. Twice I think.

    Same! But in HFT it's referred as L.O.T. (Lack Of Talent)

    when he shots pcp he makes his own recoil
    he used a defrent matt so zero was out
    zeroed at only 20 yards so dont know aim points
    its to hot to shoot
    its to cold to shoot
    forgot glasses
    scope was out
    back hurts
    matt is full of mud
    does not feel safe shooting
    dog eat my rifle
    its to sunny
    hair got in my face

    I once turned up for a shoot with my .22 pellets - and a .177 rifle? Does that count?!

    Indeed! Nomads are famous for having their targets one inch too high, too low, too left or too right... That being said, they're often in the right place for other shooters! o_O:p
