    Going to give pistol shooting a go

    After looking at @R93 's pistols for sale I've signed up for the Christchurch Pistol club day on 15 May, so any of you Chch members if you see a tall balding guy with a goatee, that's me.

    You will enjoy it I am sure.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    I will save the Shadow for you. You won't get a better entry gun for the price.

    It is basically a Shadow "Orange" without the slim grips and has all the original bits.

    Just be mindful that r93's grips are a bit longer than normal, to account for the 6th finger.....

    Does that mean there's one more round in the Mag?

    If I'm out I'll keep an eye out, although I doubt you will be the only tall balding guy so will look for the goatee

    Had a good time at the pistol club. Bit different shooting at a proper range rather than going for a blast down the river. Only got to fire 15 .22 rounds. 2 didn't seem to make it on the paper and the others were grouping to the right, so plenty to improve on. Good to have a chat to @Uplandstalker there.

    It is certainly a bucket load of fun Stug and quite interesting when you miss something at 25 metres that you can hit at 1000 metres with a long range rifle.
