Thanks Jen, I have to recommend MAD based on the welcome alone. I can't compare the Club to any others, as it is the only one I have been to, but I have to say you've all been great. I am looking forward to improving my results with a lot of practice and all the help and advice I can get!
I can also confirm that (assuming no changes) my work rota has me as day off for the next two Wednesdays at least, so I'll be back for more! In the words of the song, "the only way is up!".
On Simon's suggestion, I have ditched the bipod; ordered a sling, a nice glove and (after payday) will get the single shot converter. If anyone can suggest any other HFT essentials, I'm all ears.
Finally, it's my birthday on Weds, so I'll bring doughnuts!!
