    Its drinking it first that helps.

    I knew my past ballet lessons would come in useful some day as I have to shoot while on point.

    And to all you mockers who say I cant do this shooting under pressure (and that includes me) I did this today and it was in Rochdale Gun Clubs monthly handicap competition - yes its a competition card! using a LP2 for a change.
    [Its been checked by the official scorer with his Eagle Eye, his dongle and I even flashed it to the woman across the road. ]

    What? For more medals? Ive got enough medals to make an African general jealous.

    No, my main challenge is to shoot them there 50s and against whats in between my ears. Old age etc is making the fifties rarer. And who is 'short'?
    My other challenge is to make Jack (of the Chuckle Bros) laugh!

    I started shooting air pistol about 32 years ago (admittedly with a very big gap in the middle).
    Tonight I finally managed it, after getting very close too many times.

    Now where can you buy a 17cm x 17cm frame?
