    Andrew, if the range looks like it did on sat, we take along waders to set up and put the targets on floats... and along the back bank... giving us the option to shoot long range and moving shots.

    Default Waterlogged!!

    this was taken last Saturday - some of the lads spent time shooting at some resettabes dooor out in the bos - one at about 40m & the other at about 45m.
    Andrew was a bit optemistic hoping that we could shoot the reset paddle thru a 12mm hole so we had him wade out again to give us a bit more to shoot at.
    And a jolly great time was had by all.

    the ripple in the water you see is the bow wave of the rubber duck we used to go reset the targets.

    How deep is the water.Will the kill zone stick out above the water level ?

    They had little frog targets in america in the river,When you shoot them and there is water in the river they make a splash when they fall over.Sadly when we were there it was a bit dry.

    nope Allan, dont think the kill zone is above water level in the deeper parts. will be fun though. At least you know where you shoot when you se the splash. Was doing that to see how the wind affects the pellet saterday

    I'm afraid that killzones would have mostly been completely submerged making a shoot impossible. We have had some fearsom rain!

    All PCP shooters come with your diving tanks - that way we guaranteed not to run out of air shopuld we need to sort out faulty targets!
