dear sven 2
thank you for your response, like mr samson, i too read the first thread and like him made the link between the two. if i have made an assumption based upon the threads then i take it back. the points made in my thread still remain the same, and your conclution that our wiilingness to adorn such items as gimp coats is not making any impact on numbers in our sport, then lets put this debate to bed.
your comment about the average age of FT shooters is a little short of the mark. the sport will in all liklyhood be the preserve of the middle aged but there is some young blood coming up through the sport. so no need to worry, be calm shoot field target as your banner says.
