Got to finish the DMHS off with the HW100 .22 which I have enjoyed shooting but am missing the overall competition that you only get shooting .177 open class with 90% of the competitors, have also entered the .22 class at the worlds.
For the UK Nationals next year I have just picked up a 2nd hand Air Arms MPR which shoots real nice so going to put the Steyr away for next year, scope will be either the Hawke Tac30 or MTC Viper Connect, trying both out over the next couple of months and a change of pellets to Air Arms Field + practice as much as possible.
Air Arms EV2 MK4 + Hawke Tac 30 10 x 42
Weihrauch HW100 FSB .22 + Hawke Tac 30 10 x 42

Probably the forum software and the look of the place. How exciting huh?

I am sticking with the MPR 400 Paul Wilson stocked gun again as it did me proud in 2012.

The scope is already changed as have just moved to my dream HFT scope, a Sightron 10x42.
Then I get offered the Burris that I have had my eye on for the last year! I know the Burris is an exceptional scope though as it beat us all in the NEFTA Hunter this year.
Oh and my batch of old AA fields are running out, so some more serious testing for a new batch of pellets is in order. I need to find an extra day in the week for practice too.

Maybe, I'll take it more seriously.

Maybe I'll turn up to every round.

Maybe I'll try out this new practising idea (not sure about that)

Might try AgwaBombs instead of JagerBombs (much more likely)

I am going to take more notice of the Kestrel effect.

And really look closely at the whole poi shift situation. Its a make or break side of FT I have totally ignored at my expense I reckon. Gonna be a little more scientific about the whole thing....and practice 100% more even the kneeling and standing shots I hate.
