What weapon, what shooter, what class, what distance, why the glove? Looks fascinating ... got anything wider angle so we have a sense of place?

Hi Dwight

1. Air Arms EV2
2. Tony Cook
3. AA Grade
4. Anything from 8 to 50 meters. You have to rangefind and dial in to compensate for the distance. 40 shots, all different distance, heights and shooting positions. No one shot is the same.
5. Helps stop the pulse transferring to the gun.
6. It is, and very challenging.
7. Sorry No, shot all day with the 300mm

What caliber? What sort of accuracy does this type of shooting have? What's the gizmo over the barrel do? I was a very occasional shooter for a while 30 years ago. Got a few guns but with the photography I never seem to get to the range any more. Last thing was skeet which I really enjoyed.

I have that lens. You really could have used the 24-105mm, which I also have, from time to time. :-)

1. .177
2. In the right conditions and the gun benched with no wind 1/4 inch group at 55yards perfectly feasable. This shooter was attempting to hit a 40mm hit zone at 47 yards on this lane whilst free standing.
3. Muzzle blast deflector. It reduces muzzle flip.
4. Any time you are near Bisley (the home of British shooting) give me a call and you can have a go.

I could have also used my 16-35, but it tends to upset the shooter with a lens in thier ear :lol:

Well, I've never been out of North America so the visit may be a while! Amazing the level of technology in an air gun. Are the anti-gun fanatics against air rifles, too? :-) BTW, the shooters shouldn't even notice you in their ear if they are really concentrating should they? :rolleyes:

Match Rifle is fun. I shot some in school. .22 caliber 50ft indoor. They have since transitioned to air rifles. We used all open sights. 10 shots standing, kneeling and prone. The targets were about the size of a .50 cent piece. With the 10 ring being a dot the size of a pencil point.

We even had special jackets and slings that went from the palm rest to you bicep to help stabilize the rifle.

Tough stuff. I stick to sporting clays now when I am not carrying around my Canon.

Great shot BTW.
