I'm mortally wounded even.
But then maybe this chimp would be able to spell the instrument designer & builder's name correctly
At my stage of development Holly, a catapult would probably be more appropriate than an AR20.
I no longer require an excuse for missing - I simply shrug, to my shooting partner, and we both take the miss as 'only what was expected'. It makes life so much easier. Only one score card to fill in [his]. And there's never a worry that I may get into the Golden Bunny comp. Sam takes my money and giggles all the way to the bank.
And let's be honest. What would I do with a gun with a barley twist barrel ?
I can't hit the target with a straight one.
Enjoy your rig Holly, my friend.
Have a good New Year.
Yep sorry about that jack , i am afraid you are an easy target and i could not resist it . when i started FT it was a different world . there were no Forums to hep you . you just blundered around trying to sort out the problems you had . you think it is hard sorting out your small probs . well listen to this , my GC2 used to go out 12 clicks to the right . this was quarters we are talking here . why , why . well we knew nothing of barrel cleaning , we just shot em till they dropped . this used to happen on a regular basis . i was told yep , put these copper pellets through the rifle and you will have no more trouble . bloody hell it made it twice as bad , copper fouling on top of leading eeek
. but what to do . took it to sportsmatch , expensive and not much money about . paul listened , got his rod and brush out with his special cleaning / polishing mix . and gave it a good sorting . showed me how to pull it through after shooting and we were away . that is just one of the things that used to go wrong . we got a few of us and pooled our small knowledge and gradually sorted things . but by god we had a laugh going down the pan and that kept us going . may you find mates like mine jack ??? HOLLY
Happy new jack .
