Default Big thank you to Chris c

Would just like to say a big thank you to Chris Cundy,for all the help and advice he has given me regarding my steyr. He has given up a lot of his free time to help someone he has not even met before. I can't recommend this man enough. Thanks again Chris.

Ps sorry if this is in the wrong place.

One of the good guys is Chris. He resurected my Steyr well over a year ago & I've never really looked back?

Cheers Chris, trev, and all the others that made it happen today, really enjoyed the coarse challenging to say the least. Can't believe two people got 58 from that lot, well done. Thanks to Matt and Dave for the company Iam thinking it might have been a bit closer if you'd not both handy capped yourselves. Cheers lads. All the best. Can we make this a annual event.

Thanks for that Dave........Most know that i will help as much as possible

Brilliant days shooting yesterday and apologies for those that struggled with the course.....i had a wry smile after seeing some of the history on the range trap targets i put out Anyone with a 50+ on that course should be happy

It was mentioned after the shoot to make this an annual event. I know myself, Trev, Bob and the rest of the Emley crew would be happy to host again.

27 was eagle, 35mm kill 43 yards
28 was tree shark 35mm kill 42 Yards
29 was pony 35mm kill 45 yards

BTW, for those that bracket from the hinge to centre of kill...............you might struggle with some of my Targets.

I've got the ranges of the targets and kill sizes in my car so can post the full list later.

That Pony nearly caught me out as I got a shock how much blur was on it when I looked through the scope, thought it was 40 max by eye.
The Eagle stuffed me, I gave it 42-45yards distance and the wind pushed my pellet down 30mm at least and Daz Taylor got the same. Strange how the wind swirls in that ride.

At least half of the targets I was aiming on the edge or off the kill. With that Gorilla target I was well out of the kill, I presume that was almost full distance.

I'm going around the course on Tuesday morning with our Jamie as it is doing her head in as well!!

Really enjoyed the day and it was nice to shoot with people of all levels from other regions.

Chris is a legend. He pulled mine to bits after a few issues I had earlier in the year.

I've been shooting my TX200 quite a lot recently but I decided to take it for a spin on Saturday. This was the first comp I've used it in since the worlds and I smashed my old PB with a 57.


Thanks mate, it's superb!
