1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    I spoke to Dave Brayford at SCR about a glove for FT, he recomended me Anschutz 109 or 110 also saying it needs to be tight.
    I measured my hand at 8 3/4" which is within the critreria for large (8-9"=large) and ordered a 109.
    Glove came today from NSRA shop after ordering yesterday so pretty fast service.

    Now after trying the glove on its very tight, extremely tight and feels huge like a baseball glove.
    I do hope they give a lot once used a while.

    Anyone have experience of shooting goves?

    I got a 109 a few weeks ago, felt the same as you describe but it was fine after some use.
    Watch pulling it on by the elastic at the bottom of the cuff (stitching can come undone).

    I bought an Anschutz glove this week too, will be trying it out for the 1st time tomorrow.

    It feels huge to me too! Hopefully I`ll get used to it quickly lol

    I havn't got around to trying a glove for shooting but it does remind me of something from a few years ago.
    I bought a lovely pair of leather Cricket gloves, I was getting into the game and wanted something decent. They fitted great but the fingers would hardly move and it required a lot of effort to hold the bat and get some protection from curling the fingers inward against the stiff leather.
    After 20 years of regular use, they still were as stiff as a board but I developed the most incredible grip.

    Tried the glove today on my current practice of a 15mm kill at 25 yards FT sitting position, without the glove around 50% of my shots were a kill wind or no wind. Been shooting this for a few weeks as 25 yards mostly takes the wind out of play and puts my aim just beyond a 55 yarder stndard knockdown.

    With the glove I just shot 80% no wind, quite possibly a lucky day but here's hoping. :D
