You have to keep your wits about you at all times up there. One member mentioned last week that he had visited the gay village in Manchester. As soon as he mentioned it he knew he'd made a BIG mistake. He still wishes you could rewind life by 2 minutes and think before he spoke.
With me coaching - how can we fail?....................(only the answers on this subject that have been received by RMSD and written on the back of a postage stamp will be replied to).

Yes, but did you also see how many times my target fell out of the holder! Its withcraft I tell you man. Were doomed - doooommmeeeddd!
Now, as well as my pistol and spotting scope (Aldi £24.99 ) I will have to carry with me 'ear of bat & eye of toad.' A small bottle of virgins tears (almost impossible to find in Blackburn ) ... I wonder if BTDT would lend me some of his woad?
Have you ever seen your pellet bounce of the ten ring and hit a 3? It happened to me several times last night.
You also have (a lot of) trouble mastering your pellet box - but I am not going to mention this in public or draw any attention to it - but if I did, some may compare the two.
Let me do the technical stuff and stick your targets up for you and put your pellets in your RWS pellet sorter box for you - this leaves you with the simple task of shooting a 10 every time - entirely possible now I have removed the burden of these high pressure responsibilities from your shoulders!
Let the force be with you - it is strong in this one it is.

A Model 80 is going with me to the range tonight - its about time I decided which pistol to use in the MPL as August is getting closer - and that's when we start shooting - but the problem is I have a few nice classics to choose from and I would like to exercise them all.
The Model 65 and 80 are the "natural" choices for me as we go back to the 70's together - but then again so does the Model 10 and Model 6 - but I also like to shoot the FAS 604 and the FWB103.
The other thing is I am very tempted to go for the simple sping powered "kicker" and see how I get on with scoring UP and with the +1 pont bonus per card. I think it will be a close choice as the rules have been devised to make it this way. This brings the GAMO Centre/Target right back into play ( and others like the HW70 and Model 5) ...........and even a well sorted Webley Premier could spring a few surprises! **

... Clip ... Clop ... Clip... Clop.....
The Webley would make it easier to score. 1 + 2 + 1 + 0 + 0 and thats a good card.
Whats to stop you shooting every round with a different pistol? You could start off with a one of your FWB80s - (lets face it, you could shoot the whole 20 shot course and not have to re-load ) and then use a model 5 or HW70. As long as each card is marked with what pistol you used to aid scoring.
You could even use your Original mod 12G for one round. Now, Ive never heard of a Mod 12G but you have probably got one, the only one in captivity, and I bet its in its original box!
.....Clip .... Clop .... Clip .... Clop .... DINK!
I forgot about the Model 12G - that's another one to try.
Are you still the Public Relations Officer for the Webley Air Pistol Appreciation Club?
No, but I am the secretary of the Competition Rifle And Pistol Webleys a.k.a. as C.R.A.P Webleys.
Im also the secretary of the D.N.A. - the National Association of Dyslexics.
Oh. and Rivington Riflemen.
I shot a 45 at 10 meters with my first card................................ but it was with my Model 80!
I did hit the card with the Tempest ( a few times) - but it needs a lot of work on the trigger to make it better and good enough to even consider using it in the MPL.
John Gould also shot the Tempest - but not for long and complained that it hurt his had too!
After 50 or so shots with the Tempest I was too knackered to shoot it again and my hand hurt!..........and I never scored anything worth mentioning with the Model 80 after that either!
I guess this makes the Webley a great "leveller" - put 50 shots through it and you won't be able to shoot anything else afterwards very well either!
Anyway, I am off in the camper van for a couple of days tomorrow, so keep things ticking-over until I get back and try to find a TC3 (no tutu required - we already have TC2 angel Frankie).
I will be giving points for originality, wit, humour etc but a bonus for recruiting a TC3 !
