A really warm summer day with virtually NO wind made for some good scores, even though the Mosquitos were out in full force for the same reason, testing everbody's mettle. :shock: :? :(

Thx. Guys;

You DO gotta make it out next time there, 187-c, you will have fun & 1st. time? - FREE @ PORT.

Tyerant,- That explains it, if you were there it would have made 9 shooting Hunter, & E.W. actually shot open pcp or that would have been 10. One of the larger turnouts anyway for the division.

Windbag was missed too out of the reg. crowd. Too bad about a possible added miss-out, maybe you will be able to attend the Pistol Match on the 29th of AUG I just responded to Tim about. Looks like it's a Go. If NOT, there IS plenty of consolation in ANY " New Toys."

One more thing - Way to Go Sniper, taking second, - I know he had a good day, I had to pull up his targets & tally his score.
It was fun shooting with you again & I promise i will TRY Not-to make US laugh while We're SHOOTING !!

O.K. LAST thing, - Congrats out to CJN on his perfect 72 score - an extra 12 shots over the usual 60.

Carry On Shootin' -Keg

Look's like everyone is moving up in the ranks.

Great job on the video. You have a real gift when putting these videos together. Nice work.

Thanks for all the kind remarks as well. We all get lucky once in a while. It was a great day. Looking forward to next month.

In reply to GFL,
I'm not clear on your question, but I will say this, the young lady in the pic was apparently tutored by the fellow on the right for only 3 days prior to coming out, & impressed us all for a Totally-New shooter, a lot of the other kids in the crowd are fairly new to the sport as well and there are a natch' or two amongst them yet. It's cool to see the young folks that do come out find the same thrill as the big boys, & they will probably be giving us a run for our money soon enough.
I tortured that old "Kung-Fu" intro because the fellow on the right who took 1st.Adult Hunter is "pretty competative" when he comes out to play, & a pretty good natural shot to boot. He will likely not relent when she is old enough to join Adult division. :wink: ha, ha,ha ..... it was fun sharing the lane next to them for the day. :)

Thanks for your compliment on the vid. I LOVE making them, ..... "Anybody need a commercial ?" (hint,hint) only my second season into my "re-NEWed" interest in the airgun hobby, i will happily also while away HOURS with my sudden NEW- "NEW" hobby, -You Tubing.

Cheers.

Great pics, looked like a fantastic day out, and well done on the 72, I so wish I wasn't 1000's of miles away... one day, one day

I wish I was over there touring Skye. Some old roots that I would like to dig up.

Any of them work at the Talisker Distillery? :drinkers: Mmmmm...one of my favourite single malts!
A bunch of us Canadians will have to head over one day!
