    Cold King, I live in Massachusetts 19 degrees and snowing today… Yeah, I used to live in Sarasota. Winter can bring some chill.But in a day or two it can be 70 again.

    “chasdicapua”I’m a bit jealous of you guys living down in the warmer weather. Outdoor shooting year round. I’m down in my basement (20 yards) at least till April. I got some of the heavy duty official 25 meter cards and am thrilled to see the targets are considerably bigger then the ones that fit in the 8.5 x 11 sheets of paper. Maybe I’ll have half a chance when I move outdoors!
    Shot a 250 (second one) with 17x this morning. Happy with that, but I know the challenge will be in the wind. Enjoy the relative warmth down there wherever you all are. 
     

    
You should come to the Holbrook Sportmans Club https://hsc1.wildapricot.org/ on the first saturday of the month to shoot some indoor benchrest. it’s 25yds indoors and a lot of fun.  I missed this months match but will be there next month for sure.  If you can travel there will be another benchrest match in Salem NY the third sunday of the month at the Salem Pistol and Rifle club.  It would be Feb 20 this month.

    Of course Field Target starts a few months from now in NY also with this event  http://airgunnation.dev/topic/eftcc-spring-fling-an-aafta-grand-prix-qualifying-event-april-30th-and-may-1st/.  So there are plenty of opportunities to shoot with fellow airgunners in these colder months and busy FT season ahead.

    I’d die in that kind of weather! Today is warming a bit- low 50s– hate that! 
    Thanks for the invite John. I’d love to travel to events around the country –
    but gotta wait till I retire from this business 
    I’m 60 now- hope to do it soon 
    get a motor home and just do it!

    thinking of retiring to the Sarasota area-
    west coast of Florida has some of the most beautiful beaches- and Vistas look nothing like this side.

    Nice shooting guys! 
    I stopped in for lunch and decided to give er a go- but my plywood target backer kept blowing off its stand– really like riding a bucking bull today! Winds all over the place.
    very blustery conditions – but hell – good practice on holdoffs —

    ———-edit ——–

    Just measured the plug, 0.1975. The .177 cal pellets – 0.1790 and .22 cal pellets 0.2220 -but barrel is .217 diameter —

    My understanding is – as .177, .20 and .22 calibres can shot, therefore they are all plugged with a .22 plug, otherwise the .177  and .20 shooters are at a disadvantage. I also believe there is a standard to which plugs must comply when used in competition.

    of course it’s acceptable for the .22 plug to enlarge the hole. That’s what makes it fair for the .177 cal guys to shoot against the .20 cal and .22 cal guys.
    The .20 and the .22 make a larger hole to begin with and that would give them an advantage over the smaller  .177 diameter hole.

    You’re doing it right. You’ve just shot nothing but .22 cal for so long that you have to remember you’re now shooting .177 cal 😉

    Thanks guys – just thought visual with a magnifier and light box would leave holes in a Virgin state 😬
    I do wonder though if all the plugs are of standard diameter?
