    Now I have a question for you. If I understand correctly, the purpose is to determine the "best" rifle. If you allow each shooter to pitch up with his/her rifle, are you not going to determine who is the best shot, not which is the best rifle? If you want to determine the best rifle, should you not put each rifle through exactly the same tests, by exactly the same shooter? In other words, have one of each of the rifles and have a number of shooters do the course with each and then determine which rifle is best/most successful.

    Hi Guys and Girls.
    Hope you didn't miss me too much, I'm OK again and ready to go another round or two. I am now so fine tuned you would not be able to distinguish between the old and new.

    Sniper, Iaan and other exotic rifle shooters,
    Let’s just put the records straight. I always said that:
    The EV2 is a dedicated FT rifle built for that purpose only.

    All Exotic rifles, other that EV2, are adapted for FT use, developed and built for 10meter use (Indoor).

    All PCP rifles are equally accurate; some just had better back up in this country. Now even Walther will have better back-up.
    You are shooting an exotic rifle because you want to and can afford it, not because it will increase your score. If it does, it is only because you are used to it.

    I agree with Kobus a f a the competition is concerned. Do we want to know who the best shot is? Something else I have always said in my superior wisdom is that if you can shoot you will out shoot everybody, with ANY rifle. Jason and Bradley proved that.
    The competition sounds like FUN though, so bring it on. It should be good practice for the golden boys.

    Sniper,
    I stand by what I said. In the hands of the best shot the S400 will ot shoot anything. Unless you bribe him Jason will prove that, I hope.
