    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.

    Well ive just got home from the last of the the Northern Monkey hft winter series. Thoroughly enjoyed shooting them and got my best score of the season so far. Thanks to @bucketboy there for sorting my rifle out!

    Mainly though its a thanks to @Jack's Da and the guys from the Northern Monkey set up. All the hard work in setting up and taking down the course each month, guiding newbies like me through it all and the help and encouragement from all the guys in general. Great set of friendly lads. Its been a great series and im looking forward to the coming season proper now. Thanks a lot guys. Im well and truly hooked now!

    Cheers for the kind words mate. I sometimes wonder why I bother as it's a lot of effort with very little reward but when it's appreciated it gives you the slur to carry on.
    It's more a team effort really, there's plenty of us involved, I'm just the big mouthpiece for the group :D

    well said mate and i can only echo what you have said.

    you shot well today and it was good to see you and the GSX doing the business

    The last three shoots have really been a good learing curve to me and like you im ready for the summer series, keen as mustard

    pete and a few others who always turn up early to set up the shoot always do a grand job and make the day possible for us all so thats something that is always appreciated..........well done @JackS'da............you did a good job today!

    thought you might like these pics

    honestly mate i doubt theres not one person who does not appreciate the effort and time that you put into planning and setting up the shoots, its brought a great bunch of likeminded shooters together.

    as for mouthpiece im not going to correct you i could hear you as i was walking down to help set up and i heard you before i saw you
