Okey doke!

If this has worked there should be a few pics of my equipment (snigger) in this post.

And if it HAS worked, I'll post pics of my first targets which I hope to be shredding this evening!





..........so I packed up and went to the pub.

I'm in envy of your equipment.
No, not that, the moderator.

Really? None at all?

Not even the one of the rubber duck or the one of Angelina Jolie riding bareback?

That's going to make my next post pretty poor because I've just got back from the range with my first set of targets.

So, I went to the range this evening.

There were a few people in there but it wasn't too busy so I paid the VERY reasonable "10 for as long as you like" fee, 50p for a handful of targets and 50p for a cup of coffee.

I started on the first pair of targets (all of these are at about 25/>30 yards) Here they are:



Note the bottom-right tendancy?



A little less bottom-right,  but not great.........

So I plinked a few tin cans and spinners and had a go at a couple more targets:



Notice the THREE holes in this target? I have no idea where the other pellets went.........



.........but wherever they went, they probably ended up in the same place as the two missing from this target!

So I plinked a few more cans, worried some little, metal ducks, did the business on some spinners and popped a few flags.

Here come the last pair of targets.

Brace yourselves!



Apart from the top-left shot that just caught the paper the "layout" is the right shape.

And finally ....................



Now I know I'm no expert (clearly), but I'm pretty proud of that last one. I'll not win any competitions with it but after an hour or so I felt like I was getting somewhere.

I should point out that I used special targets approximately 4 square metres in size.

Nah, only kidding about that. The targets are about 15-20 centimtres each side. (Is that a standard?)

Can't wait next week!

Nope, none in reply #30, if that's where they're meant to be?
