Season 3 - Round 1

Postby pmh » Sat Apr 05, 2014 10:57 am

Season 3 of the bench rest air pistol competition starts in May 2014.

The rules and target can be found >here<

A new support rule has been added, but not updated in the rules yet.

In addition to the support method described in the current rules, pistols may be rested using the base of the pistol grip. The hand, arm, or elbow, however, must not touch the rest.

Good luck.

Results received so far:-

An excellent effort there from Richard, and it looks like he's got the technique right.

We'll have to tap him up for his secrets!

Kind regards,

Well, I turned down the sunny days to shoot on, as I had to get some jobs done, which left me with today.

I managed to find a break in the rain, but conditions were less than ideal.

I should have also shot some test targets, as I do have to aim off and thought I could remember the aim point. My results show I obviously couldn't!

Oh well, there is always next month to improve.

Kind regards,



Phil

Hi Phil I will agree its sometimes difficult to find time to shoot as we have other things we need to do and more than often the weather up scuttles things to. But we just have to make best of what we got.

Shot mine today, damn, that was hard work!!

I wrongly assumed it would be dead easy, I mean what could be simpler.... find a rest at target height.... rest the pistol on it and blast away.... easy....and if your not getting 10s from a solid rest there's sumat wrong with you........ oh, how wrong can a man be....

Aim points way lower than the black.... Finding the bench rest is altering the POI of the break barrel.... finding a point on the pistol that doesn't affect the barrel.... and then finding out you still have to maintain proper hold and trigger control while still being able to line/see the sights.....

I walked into my garage fully expecting to walk out with my tail wagging and a fist full of 10+'s..... Nope, not at all.... not quite a broken man, but a more humble one ner the less

Maybe next month....
