I generally shoot a 40 shot course on a Sunday at the club and occasionally have a few shots on my home range, usually a few standers and a bit of bench testing to check the rig out before a weekend shoot.

Damn, missed the irresponsible posting :-)

When I was staying over in Manchester for work I was practicing 3 times a week indoors and I can't help but feel that initially improved my scores at comps. Just can't find the spare time to get down to the range over the winter months.

Roll on summer so I can get out in the evenings

  • Daystate MK4 TH (Still no electrocutions ) w/Hawke Panorama 3-12 40
Slowly working my way through every conceivable way to miss tin chickens!
