I have had my old 2002 for yonks . it is older than Bazza . ( That Is Old ) still going but it does not put in the sort of groups that you need to get 15 mil minis at 25 yards off the knee . so i thought i would try my spare shutz barrel . now i have tried this before but was not happy with the way it shot at range . now i always clean my barrels after every shoot . but as i have not been using this rifle properly , just keeping the seals going . so i have not been cleaning the barrel . must be well leaded up by now . anyway today in the that awful wind at 55 yards . it was shooting well . so sunday as it supposed to be better weather . i will take it zero it in properly and see how it does . never write a barrel off till you have tried everything ???

Holly and Ian were sitting at the plinking range today shooting at the pigeon at 55 yards. One knocked the head down and the other knocking the head up. I suggested trying it standing up which Holly was all up for. After a about 3 shots Holly shot the head down and said it would be harder to hit it back up. Well - after 2 shots my good old FTP900 found the spot and I think it was the first time I’ve seen Holly stuffed for words although “that was a lucky shot” was finally uttered. Yes - maybe I was fortunate but I felt it was an achievement that had me smiling all the way home.
