As I've been considered as an essential cog (well, I think it was cog that my boss said) to keep the wheels of industry turning, I'm doing normal hours instead of sitting on my ar$e watching netfli... sorry, working from home. As a result, it's going to take me a bit of time to get organised for shooting at home but I will be joining in.
Think I'll do the Target Pistol with my FWB 80 but I'm unsure what to use for the Open Pistol and Rifle comps. Sticking a laser on my HW40 should produce good results but, if that's too easy (as I suspect it might be) then a rethink permitting lasers might be in order.
And my diopter sighted HW30 "Paper Puncher" could be overkill for a 10p size target at such close range so I may break out the BSA Standard for that - need a bit of challenge, after all.
That said, I haven't shot in ages - maybe hitting an A4 sheet will be trial enough!

Due to an odd state of affairs that I won't go into, I only have a few minutes a day (and not every day either) to get some shooting done in my loft range.
Monday's 10 minutes was spent sticking my target box back together.
I broke out my HW40 with a laser on Tuesday and damned if the £#@&-$π€ thing didn't throw a wobbly and refuse to eject pellets, giving a slow hiss of leaking air instead of forcefully throwing projectiles downrange.
Wednesday, I tried my FWB 80 and found that I couldn't see the outline of the 10p sized targets I'd drawn in biro with open sights. And, of course, I didn't have a big black marker pen...
Today (Thursday) was a complete non-starter and I'm not going to get any further shooting done until Tuesday at the earliest.
And, to take the pi$$ further, my HW40 started working consistently when I took it into work for some chronoing and attention. German reliability my ar$e - it's in danger of being chucked in the Dee but the POS would probably float. 😠
However, my pitiful excuses shouldn't stop the rest of you having a go so get those cards in!
Not quite sure how I managed it (probably a side effect of my homemade anti CV-19 medicine) but I've only just registered Steve L's 2nd round entry. His 17 is a little off the pace of his stonking opening score but still up there.
