It was looking a bit doubtful regarding re-shooting the target today........the wind is gusting pretty well.
So I went to the range which is more sheltered.....another chap was there shooting a 22LR target rifle at 100yds.

The chair target holder worked well :D.....and the thicker card I got hold of to back up the paper printed targets was much better for reading the shots and preventing tears.
I used the Pulsar .25 today.

See the holes much clearer now I think.


Looking down the range.....target set at 30yds.

Deckchair AND parasol.......please.:D

I posted in the hope it may help others who want a cheap stable target holder for the competition target shooting and plinking in general.
I feel it is related to the thread.

Discussing permissions could have been done elsewhere mate as they do not relate to this thread:thumbsup:

This is from a .177 BSA 240 magnum with factory iron sight using RWS R10 match pellets.
(Slightly corrupted chapman stance at five meters in poor light)

I'm a little unhappy to say I've scored 22 but after counting up it seems I'm due two more shots....mind you the way I was going they would have cost me points...:(

I think I'll go with the .22lr this time, I'll have a better chance of not making myself look silly...still practicing with the Spring pistol but I'm looking for a pump up one instead. :mad:The air rifle is advertised in the local paper shop.:mad:

The competition is only a bit of fun mate........do the best you can with what you have.
Have you any plans to get another springer at some point?
Just curious have you checked your rifles hinge shims?........is there any play if you try to wiggle the barrel from side to side?
Have you tried different pellets through it to see what the barrel like's and groups best with?
How old is the rifle.....might be an idea to clean the barrel and re-lead it......start over.
