Donít worry about it mate.
I donít think that you are looking at it in the right way buddy. You shouldnít be thinking that people have no faith in you buddy because they do.
Itís not about that mate at all and between me and you it was me and only 4 other regulars on here chatting about some of your posts privately via Pm, Nothing bad was written about you as a person and no one said that they didnít like you etc. It was only the contents of some of your posts were discussed between friends as they would do down the pub etc, so only a small percent of the section regulars and as I said no one was attacking you as a person mate.
I donít think that people donít have faith in the younger shooters at all buddy.
I for one welcome younger shooters and itís the only way that our sport will carry on after all the oldies have hung up their rifles (as a football player may say)
There is a young lad on here called Owen Vining, he is all of about 12 or 13 years old and I have been shooting with him 2 days on the run in the UK over Christmas.
That lad is a top young lad, very polite, very mature for his age, listens to what you teach him and puts it very quickly into practice, and boy can this lad shoot for his age.
You will meet him at Davys meet and his Grandmother and probably shoot against him in the HFT if he enters it.
I know for sure that out of the large list of regulars and non regulars attending that meet and entering that HFT that Owen will not be last place and in fact I have that much faith in him after watching him shoot that I would say that a lot of shooters will be beaten by him which when you watch him shoot you wont be embarrassed by it as he is bloody good.
Yep as you say no one knows everything and we are all still learning buddy so carry on with what you are doing.
Donít worry about my comments or anyone elseís comments. The forum is designed for comments and discussions and if everyone in the world always agreed with each other then I wouldnít be in a job and there would be no wars anywhere in the world.
You know what is true and whatís not mate donít you so who cares really what others think.
Iím leaving this here now mate as I feel that I have put a downer on your thread and others peoples enjoyment with my comments but if you want to chat more about it PM me your land line number and ill phone you if you are still upset and we can chat about it more buddy and put this to rest so we can get on to discussing hunting again.
