I echo what has already been said.......your targets cards are improving every time, so you are certainly making positive progress. ;) 8)


As to some of your comments......

Adjusting your scope too often is counter productive, as tweaking the turrets will only confuse matters.

Don't re-zero when/if you change pellets.....much better to settle on which is the best performing pellet for your rifle, zero for those, and then leave it alone. If then changing brands, just learn to compensate and 'aim-off' instead of re-zeroing.  However, IMHO, once the best pellet has been found I don't see the point of using anything else, as it's not going to be as good as with your favoured pellet anyway. ;)

The pressure is on, guys (and gals? (Did I seems a bit "Saville" there?)); a mate of mine has offered me a permission!!!!

So, as he wants bunnies clearing I've told him I'll be round in the Spring. I've given myself 3 to 4 months to get to a level where I can be useful.

My plan was to go to the range this evening but the roads are "f*cking mental" (this is a quote from a bloke in the office, not the girl who does traffic reports on Capital Radio) apparently.

Damn you, Black Friday!!!!

Offered a permission ehh......that's bloody brilliant!!

I would hazard a guess a lot of the bunny shooting would be from the standing stance, and maybe kneeling too.......so lots of practice at doing those would advantageous. Are you able to shoot in the back garden Blerk?

NIMBY or, to put it another way, Not In My Back Garden............ unfortunately.

I'm thinking that wind is going to be an issue.

I'm hoping that I might be able to get a permission from a local farmer I know and do some "field target" practice before I move up to live targets.

And I shall continue to try to get into the local HFT club.

And I suppose BASA or BASC membership would be advisable...........?

Can you use the land of the permission you've already been granted to practice on?

Yes, some sort of insurance is advisable.....there's a thread about it on here somewhere as there's a few to choose from.
