right since the club guns are no longer at the club . i thought it might be a good idea to get a general plinking rifle . my first proper spring gun was a BSA Meteor in 177 . good little rifle . so i am after one as we speak . when i do , i thought we might have a standing spring gun champs on the zero range . see who the man is with a basic rifle . ???

  • I have an old GC2 , 1987 ( almost as old as Bazza ) what it lacks is a period scope . so today i have bought a BSA Platinum 10X50 By 60 . one of these was my first super scope . first time out at curridge park i shot a 36 ex 40 . so when one came up , i thought why not . so maybe a bit of winter league . can't sink any lower than B grade ( i did not sink , i was chucked ) get back to enjoying my shooting and of course a GP maybe if the Bsa turns out to be any good and if i can still use one . back in the day with my old one . i reckon i could out range a range finder out to 60 yards . we will see . ???

  • Please note the copied message I received from our regional secretary, Rob Farnworth. Hello all, The BFTA held their AGM at the weekend and one of the matters that came up was the cost of the BFTA Card. The price of this has been raised from £3.50 to £5 starting next year. Over the years the region has supported the BFTA with the purchase of the card, mandating it for entry into both the HFT and the FT Winter Leagues. However with the BFTA Grading system not applying to the region anymore, and with less than 20 competing in national BFTA competitions I am aware that the card's perceived value to the region may be not what it once was. A concern might arise about the insurance of shooters in the leagues, however the region mandates that insurance documents are provided to the region’s clubs to ensure continued participation in Winter Leagues, so that aspect is covered in that respect and if need be the region could get it’s own cards printed for around £50 to cover several 100 shooters if a similar card was required to prove shooters were members of clubs. In reality though the BFTA card is rarely used for that purpose. If we consider that we no longer wish to mandate the purchase of the card then a constitution change would be required. This change would require a 2/3rds majority of clubs to agree to a constitution change at the AGM. So this email is to air the subject ahead of time so that representatives can pass their voice back to myself and we can then consider where we go from there with enough time to do so. What I wish to avoid is people realising the price has gone up only when they renew and there not being enough time to do anything about it. The cards we have are valid until the end of March so this won’t affect them or their holders. Those that wish to compete in national FT competitions would still need to purchase them for next season. Kind regards, Rob
  • At the AGM last night i was voted " Best Looking Member " and of course Best Shot . mind you the competition was pretty weak ??? HOLLY PS Shame about you lot .
