I have plenty of room to set the rifle up so that isn't a problem although I have no idea what to zero or on what mag etc so I think I will have to do some more homework .lol
I am too used to fixed mag bushnell 10x40's for HFT you see and the closest I have come to altering PX is with my Falcon FFP !

I have tried the sitting stance and to be honest if I lay one leg down ( knee to the floor ) and use the other to rest the rifle on it's not too uncomfortable at all , this is where you tell me thats against the rules isn't it .

Looks like Bisley would be the closest for me so if the bug bites I may have to have a look there , I used to shoot at Bisley on the Friday night chip shop challenge so I am an old pro .... and never once had to buy the chips !!!
If it is chips it would be cliffy ? yes i think bisley is your nearest . but drop in at Kent Woodsmen near ashford one sunday morning . good bunch of fellas . they can put you straight ??? HOLY
Can't ever recall Cliff having to buy them . lol

Many thanks for the advice , I look forward to giving it a try asap . Don't panic I'm sure your silverware will be safe .

Steve I didn't know Guy was a coach so I will have to pop along - just got to get someone along to share the petrol costs as it's clearly outside of the Sussex border .

atvb and thanks again
