Just an idea for the Committee/members to consider. Could it work?
Anybody got any ideas?. Either run it in conjunction with a winter comp date (PCP am, Springer pm)(handicap system for those who haven't got a Springer/pcp?) or maybe just one Sunday in between the comps- no need to reset the course, just respray the targets. Bacon butties & coffee at the break. Maybe even get the Committee members to take part. What do you think?

Good idea Nick,
count James and I in.

No doubt we'll shoot badly enough without a handicap but the bacon butties will be welcome!
Cheers,
Paul

I have been giving this idea some thought Nick but I am still sitting on the fence :thinking:/> . I think it will work for those who own a springer and a pcp, but probably not for those who don't. The reason I say this is because I don't have one (neither do I want one) so it would mean shooting the same course twice in one day with the same airgun (albeit with a handicap in the afternoon).

If such a comp were organised inbetween winter league dates I would be willing to give it a go just to see if it will work.

The more comps the better. :thumbsup:/>

Point taken, maybe just do a springer only comp one afternoon, just repaint the targets, no bacon butties though :cry:

One thing I have noticed Nick is the lack of response to your suggestion, is no one interested? Does the committee have an opinion?

Is there anybody there???

Obviously not!
I thought it might get newbee springer shooters interested in the comps, who may otherwise have been put off by shooting with/against pcp. Perhaps they are just not into competitions.
I'll just STFU. :lol:

Great idea for a comp. Suppose it will show just how bad we all are with a springer, not that I am much better with a PCP. Count me in.

Nick,

Have you given any thought to what the handicap might be for a PCP shooter? Is there a standard that other clubs use?

Not given it a thought at all, I was hoping others might chip in :thumbsdown:/>/>
I haven't read of any other clubs using a handicap system.
But looking at previous comps where I seem to remember Martin & Iain using springers & going on my performance today with a .22 springer for the first time -10 might be a starting point.
Next time we are there together, how about using that as a base & see how it goes.
Now that Iain has got an EV2 & has had more experience with a springer than the rest of us, its the only way I can see him winning a comp. :laughing:/>

Might be better if we had a .177 boinger in the mix aswell, Dave??

Hi Nick, just seen this again and it reminded me what a good idea I thought it was. Should try and get it organised for this summer, I will certainly be up for it. Question, does the club have a ratty old springer with iron sights for the HPA only's to borrow for the afternoon ? :smile:/>

I have an unknown make of springer I bought when I was about 16 and some other horrendous Chinese thing with a rusty barrel. I don't mind lending these out as it means I cannot possibly come lower than 3rd from last. I do hope I am not being hopelessly optimistic here!!!
