    #firstworldproblems Just aim at the bit in the middle? ;)

    Old sniper trick : use the tall finger on the trigger.

    OK lol! The point was it is harder to raise that finger as it's the middle two fingers that are "linked" not the first and second.

    Old sniper trick : use the tall finger on the trigger.

    The "coupling" of finger tendons is mostly between the middle (large) and ring fingers. To demonstrate this place your hand palm down on a table top. You should be able to lift all your fingers independently. Now flex your middle finger underneath so the finger nail is down towards the table...

    Old sniper trick : use the tall finger on the trigger.

    I understood the "trick" was more for speed than accuracy. Soldiers using bolt action rifles like the SMLE in WW1 using the middle finger for the trigger, could keep first finger and thumb on the bolt handle for very rapid reloads. British soldiers practiced the "mad minute", at least 15...

    Old sniper trick : use the tall finger on the trigger.

    I shoot FT with airguns, mainly springers, and I use exactly this pinch movement, except it's not pressing against the back of the trigger guard but part of the stock at the rear of the action. All my custom target stocks have a shelf for a "thumb up" position. For springers especially though...

    instructions prior to first clout shoot.

    I've been to about 4 clouts (AGB) and there were compounders there and prizes in that class too.

    Bow fishing

    Link to relevant Act of Parliament please? Also please quote the applicable section and subsection. Or, it's utter and complete bollox. So you don't know. :rolleyes: A lot of people "believe" a lot of weird and wonderful stuff, often stuff that other folks have just made up. This is...

    Longbow draw weight?

    Thanks Del, post was prompted just by curiosity. My LB is just for casual shooting at the moment, not really looking to compete with it. If I was, the only comps I'm likely to shoot it in the future are NFAS and possibly GNAS which it should be fine with.

    Longbow draw weight?

    Out of interest which events/organisations disallow bamboo backed longbows? I've recently got a nice laminate bow which is boo backed.

    KG Falcon - thoughts?

    I like the fact it's fine with my long draw. I shoot Timber Creek "traditional" carbons from mine. Shoots pretty flat too; must take chrono to the range sometime.

    KG Falcon - thoughts?

    That is quite odd, as my Osprey is the least handshocky bow I've ever shot. Apart from my oly recurve which has loads of extra mass and sticky out bits. What's also slightly odd is in 2016 you didn't describe any handshock from the Osprey, you just said it was "very nice indeed".

    KG Falcon - thoughts?

    Why not pop over to KG and try one out? I had a plan to do that with an Osprey, when I happened upon the used one I got. At some point I have a plan to do that and order a carbon Osprey at a higher draw weight.

    KG Falcon - thoughts?

    I picked up a barely used 36lb Osprey for a steal last year. Poor guy had only had it 18months and been shooting with it only 4 times due to a shoulder injury and then had to give up. His loss was my gain. Beautiful bow, so smooth and fast and not a hint of stack at my 32". I've not tried...
