I think we first experienced Sillys around about 1990 after Andy Calpin and a few others had shot them on a trip to the states. The NEFTA Classic was the first competitive event to really feature them although I remember shooting them at the Internationals held at North Staffs around that time too.

I'm not sure who is in that picture but the rifle may have been specifically set up for sillys or maybe they thought it just looked good

Ah right.......the slideshow numbers don't match the file numbers.......

22 on the slide show is Dave Myers but 22 on the file numbers could well be Keith Moss Paul. I wouldn't put money on it though I'm rubbish with names.

Thanks for those Simon.

I notice Adam Smith AGW editor is in the background of the first.

I used to travel with Jim Roberts quite a lot. Not sure what happened to him, I think the last I heard he was working in a bike shop in York, but that might have been while he was studying? He shot a Ripley AR4 (didn't we all back then) with a CS1000 stock that had had the fore end trimmed low and flat. It was topped off with a 26x boosted leup.

He also used to drive a metro
