    Since it is fair to say that most shooters think that anything past 50 mag is not needed to range find on ? why do some shooters persist in having bigger mags . 60 and up at the mo . could it be some type of compensation fixation . IE a lacking in the trouser dept ? over to you BIG MAG BOY'S ??? HOLLY:):D

    Big mag = Big kit?????

    Fair play Holly,

    There are some shite threads put on here and I am pretty fair in saying your involved in them bud.

    I like the fact you try and wind up the lads(like myself) who have bought big mag scopes.......!!!!!

    You only have to look at yourself though, spending all that money on your S&B and only having 50 mag, Im sure if the PM2 cane with 60 or 80 mag then you wouldnt be putting this up eh bud.........?????

    You keep on trying to wind the lads up Holly, I will still giggle at what you try and do haahaahaa...........

    I think what Holly is trying ti say Mark, is that he ain't man enough and good enough to shoot on high mag, :p
    Ain't nothing like x80 mag on a long stander...it's like shooting a bin lid:D

    Bin lids

    Conor,

    Have you seen Holly taking a standing shot, watch the end of the barrel and you would think he is circling a bin lid haahaaa...

    Bracket ?

    There is a lost art in FT called bracketing . when FT was young , scopes were 2+7 by 32 tascos . scores were still good . terry doe used it a lot even when he moved up the mag range . good luck to those who need it the big mags. but you really do not have to have it ??? HOLLY:):D

    Soft ?

    You must be on the whacky baccy . the courses were 25 main targets and five mini kills as eliminators . so if i got 24 and two minis and you got 23 and five minis . i won . BUT and this is a big but . the minis could be at any distance out to 55 yards as could be the positionals .some of those old courses could be bloody hard .some of the shooters could be bloody hard as well . as anybody who ever saw mick dakin will tell you . but big attendances and big laughs . shooters were very vocal ( same as HFT now ) excellent . i would like to see a club put one on . in fact i will see if our club will do one ??? HOLLY
