    Anyway I did want a Walther before they became common place.When my EV gets its service I might just shoot with a Walther to see all your faces
    Let me know when that happens...I don't want to miss this!!

    So, what is happening with the suggestions so far?

    And how about incorporating the Brad Troyer's course difficulty system, into the handicap system:

    I think the Troyer's system has been discussed before but no one uses it so far here.

    Good one Swordfish.
    I am still of the opinion that all courses should be classified according to the troyer system, if for no other reason than it makes the builder think properly about the course they set up. Too often we go out to the range and set up a course depending on terrain etc and how we feel on the day, without any planning. They often end up being too hard or too easy.
    Using the troyer system to plan a course at least means you think about the intended audience etc and level of difficulty intended.
    Elevates the sport in terms of proffessionalism I think.

    Yes but the problem with the Troyer system is gusty wind. One target might be easier for one and more difficult for another if the wind suddenly picks up.
    You can't put everything in a frame but at least we can try few things and see how it works. By just taking won't gain any experience.

    .
    But at least one has a point of origin. We are all aware of the environmental influences making thing more complicated.
    I am not suggesting that we are really trying to equal the playing field, what we should be doing is setting basic standards.

    Do we have the Duckworth/Lewis system in place in case of rain?

    Only the Duck system. Swim and shoot in case of rain. Lewis only appears when there are lightening ground strikes.

    I read yesterday that SA Hunters has a rain committee that desides when to stop a shoot when rain/thunder starts or cancel a day before due to rain and bad weather conditions. Can any one confirm this?
    I do not have a problem shooting in the rain if it is safe!
