It does look good, and i will join in as soon as i'm able may i be so bold to suggest a discussion forum within the target section where people can easily exchange thoughts, ideas, comments, and no doubt some banter  :wink: on the contest rather than trawling through the general or other sections to find any discussion. Good luck to everyone providing their scoring less than me when i join in, M.  :lol:

I was going to take advantage of the sun, and shoot this afternoon, but we had to go shopping, somebody kindly scuffed my good lady's bumper on Friday so I resprayed that side,  then I stripped and rebuilt the MP-53, and it was suddenly dark.

Hopefully tomorrow will be just as nice.

I shall be using my Original 6G with RWS R10s; though I'll have to check my aim point, as it's set up for the UBC 6 yard competition.

Kind regards,

Postby zunmik » Sat Dec 01, 2012 10:07 pm

I had a practice with the LP53 this afternoon - the sights were way off with it bench rested so much so that I couldnt get the rear sight low enough. Shooting free hand (two hands) I can achieve reasonable accuracy but the bench rest has a big effect on this particular recoiling springer

A quick plink with the Crosman 600 at my Gamo knock down targets off the rest showed a marked increase in accuracy - though this being a multi shot is prohibited!

I was going to see what the Senior was like rested (as I always enjoy shooting it and its surprisingly accurate for a .22 recoiling springer - however, by 4pm the temperature in the garage had dropped too low to contunue even sitting right next to two heaters!

I am hoping that the S&W 78G that I am after will materialise soon as I think it would be well suited to this

It will be interesting to see how the POA changes on my pistols, when rested.

I have 5 "pop out" pistols to choose from, and think it would good to get a Gat Gun comp going. Until recently, Blackpool Air Rifles had the Gat gift sets in for £20.

Kind regards,

Rest

Postby zunmik » Sat Dec 01, 2012 10:24 pm

Not sure if its legal, but if shooting a recoiling pistol i would prefer to rest my hand rather than the pistol itself, and even then it would be a soft rest like a beanbag, but as always "each to their own", M. :)

We have added an amendment to the rules that covers hand resting.

This was originally intended for small pistols, but the concept will work for all.

Kind regards,
