well I know for sure that's Rick sitting looking at the camera with that funny smirk on his face in the brown t-top. :D

Barfman is at the picknick table in the red hat. I am right behind him in the green jacket. Gerard is shooting behind Rick.

I am terrible with remembering names so .....

No problem, NFG. Good to see that your Stoeger is shooting properly. I'm just not sure why some of the FT targets didn't drop when you seemed to get a good hit on them, maybe it's a pellet issue as you had mentioned?

Yup, it was a GREAT day. Especially after all that rain we'd had. I just wish I could've been shooting my Hammerli rather than the Diana that hadn't been sighted in. Next shoot, I'm determined to get more than one fill worth of shots.

That Sledgehammereli is so cool. So quite. The good news is you have a month to get it all sorted out.

What I learned yesterday was that I need to work on my shooting positions. I need a shooting stick. I need to practice more....

Since a few people were interested in my shooting stick, here it is:

It's incorrectly listed as a tri-pod. Good ol' CT.

Same here! I was ill prepared yesterday! Need a stool and shooting stick and have the right HPA connection for my Discovery ! Thanks to Gerard for loaning me his Brocock Atomic carbine! At least I hit every target and didn't embarass myself!

Better than I did... I completely missed a couple shots with that Diana 24. Really should have worked on getting the scope zeroed instead of just playing with the Hammerli. Sunk a couple squirrels, though. Had to underhold by 2" - 4", depending on distance.

No, more like Dick Marcinko, founder of Seal team 6. Big Ugly knuckle dragged!

Best thing you guys can do, spend some time on the range, with a measuring tape, out to 40y. Zero your gun at 25y. write down what mildot is at every distance from 10y to 40y, say every 3-5 yards.

Once you have that little piece of paper, you will know where to shoot on every shot; almost never miss again, doesn't matter what speed your gun shoots.

Hope this helps.

Biagio

Kelly was talking about this on the weekend. I will have to find a place I can shoot longer distances and give it a go. Still working on my hold and stance. Kelly suggested I focus on my sitting shots.

For now I have done a little forarm mod to get a nice lower resting handhold. Sort of like a cheap hamster. So far it seems to be working. Will have time later tonight to work with it.

Nice mod Nfg. Now, try to find some neoprene that is glued on the one side. Stick it on, petfect for your left knee.

Hope this helps.

Biagio :D
