Thanks Blerky,

De nada.

So the sellotape goes on before spraying it black?

Aye.

And you can spray it another colour if you like, as long as it contrasts with the colour of the card.

Also, I've put different colour card onto the original card so some areas splat with different colurs.

Aaaannnndddddd......... If you lay a template of sorts over the taped card before spraying you can introduce target shapes. I used a rubber doormat to produce the following efforts:

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

I was looking at my equipment last night (ideal opportunity; the missus was out) and got to thinking about the covers on one of my scopes.

Two black plastic thingies held together by bits of elastic.

I can see that they will protect the lens from scratches but I wondered why they each had a "tinted" centre piece. Are they to be used in bright sunlight?

Well, it's been a while since I posted on this thread.

And that's because it's AGES since I paid the range a visit. I've been spending all my time ratting.

I put that right last Friday. I went with a plan to swap the scopes on my rifles so that I could hook my NV rig up on my PCP with an AO scope.

Best laid plans and all that ............... there wasn't enough room on the AO scope to accommodate all the mounts and rails of the NV rig.

But my faffing about meant that I was obliged to re-zero my guns which is probably not a bad thing.

Here's a vid of my 30 Yard Zeroing.

Fascinating footage, eh?

Note that it's not that bad from the start but definitely needed a little tweak.

Zeroing completed I set about doing a bit of plinking.

For those that like to watch that sort of thing here are a couple of plinking vids :

30 Yard Plinking

A Little More Plinkinig

Now I know you fine folk would like to see something a little more spectacular so here's another vid (save yourself a tenner at the cinema and watch this beautiful parody of "Dunkirk") : First Plaster of Paris Battalion takes a Pasting.

Look at the dust fly!!!!!!

I thought that another slight tweak to the zero was required so I did that before Finishing Off The Plaster of Paris Battalion Survivors.

It was a good session. I'd forgotten that range time can be so enjoyable; nice company, comfortable surroundings, VERY affordable and reassurance that one's zero is OK.

I packed up my gear and headed home (via my ratting permission).
..........so I packed up and went to the pub.

Mr Blerk

Thank you for an amazing set of posts.

I have been buying the plaster of paris men off eBay like a loony bird gone mad.

I'll task my youngest well if 21 is young to make some molds he needs the experience
