Default It's true!

Simon and Gilly are absolutely correct.

Pay particular attention when faced with the magnificent Persian Ironwood (Parrottia persica)-this tree originates in Iran and can play havoc with your trajectory. I advise a polite "Alahu akbar" before taking the shot-worked a treat for me best mate "Big Dave" on his 6th tour of duty.

More food for thought-what about the higher natural radiation found in flint and other stone-it must have an effect on pellet flight-probably why I always shot like a t**t at Anston and Quarry..........

Making ships from oak "Heart of Oak" saw a lot of Napoleon's balls bounce off.

Is that why he kept his hand inside his jacket , so no one saw all the splinters

Default unabsolute proof

Received a reply from my email to Brian Cox earlier.
Apparently, it's now a confirmed scientific fact that tree's have become more magnetic over the past 50 years due to modern day air pollution. Tree's can now cause very small electro magnetic changes in air density due to small changes in the gravitational pull of the earths natural magnetic field around them.
Today i made some very minor adjustments to my aim when shooting very close to tree's and i scored hits on every shot !
So is it ,as some may think , B***ocks ?

The ultimate question is how big where the trees you where shooting at ?

Default Sun spots and flares

Im starting to also think that sun spots and flares may also be causing pellet drift.

Going to brush up on my quantum mechanics. Anybody got Steven Hawkins number?

I hope you've factored in the effects of dark matter.

Are you implying you made all of this up ? If you have you are a real Chopper I have just re calibrated my mass flow induction unit that accounts for thermo nuclear reactions between seismic and radioactive reactions of polar and solar seismic shifts in the Astro physical solar impulses excreted by solar flares

You can spout all the physics you like but I blame Brexit.
