    Default I am getting happier

    After all my trials and tribulations with consistent accuracy, I am coming right at last... see attached.

    The 3 shots outside the 30mm circle are all shooter error from a gritty trigger.

    25m standing and supported on a branch.

    Ammo... Air Arms Diabolo Field.

    Also, based on some advice regarding the breach of the GAMO CF-30... I pushed the pellet to the end of the breach. The difference this makes is amazing (Take note GAMO... a design flaw!)

    Anyway... I am sure that there are people out there that could do a lot better, but I AM HAPPIER NOW (Now I can stop beating the dog, wife and kids)!

    I know how you must have felt like, I went through a similar experience some time back. I recon your dog is also relieved.

    Yesterday Gerrief said: "In my humble opinion there is not much more you can do with a Gamo, other than to use it as a cricket bat."

    You must be shooting with one hell of a bat then...
    Well done!

    Cricket bat...

    This is what I was thinking a while back. I really do think that the breach system on the Gamo CF-30 is faulty. When I do not push the pellet far into the breach, I find that I get quite a few 'flyers'.

    I think that this may also be the cause of the total lack of accuracy I achieve with the Crosman Premier ammo.

    Anyway... when I finally manage to get a 100% 30mm group, I shall post it. I am happy with 70% right now.

    Could it be that when you close the breach the possibility to damage the pellet skirt???

    You are so right.

    When I was a kid, I had a fancy Gecado. I was pretty good with it but...

    A mate of mine, William, had a clapped out old Daisy pressed metal piece of junk.
    He could hit a turtle dove in the head every time at 15 metres. Anything distance beyond that would just give it a headache.

    It just proves that sometimes, it's the workman and not the tool.

    Most of the time it is the workman, you are right, but no artisan can do a really decent job without decent tools.
