Shot airguns for years since I was 10.Had a webley 'Ranger' 0.177 shooting in garden.
About 1980 started into the early birthing pains of FT at Markyate,went through a'Vulcan',FWB 124,then a HW77 which won lots of 'Bling' and still does.
Bought a GC2 off John at Sportsmatch in 1990/91 and then put everything on hold for 10 years.
Showed Harv the way into 'real ' shooting HFT at LVAGC,around 2002. In at the beginning of HFT,and the bug surfaced again.
Been pottering about ever since and tripping over trophies every so often,and acquiring various guns as well.
Been very lucky when skill not up to standard and hopefully shown others how good airgunning is,won some ,lost a lot.
I think its important to be very lucky than too skillful
Can't beat a jammy bar***rd.
