No need for bad language thank you. There are other words to describe things which are disliked.
Hardly surprising. I would never had fitted a cheap scope such as the Richter onto any of my full bores, even now with their new and much improved range I would still limit their use to air only and then to those with a proven low recoil action.
Personally I just don't see the point in spending more than necessary on a scope that gives no more accuracy than the more expensive ones and I suspect are bought more as a posing point than anything else. I tend to equal or sometimes even outperform some better equipped (in their minds) target shooters without all of their expense.
On the lighter side and for my own curiosity whilst I compose the thesis for my psychology course can anyone tell me why target shooters on the target only ranges tend to wear camouflage clothing? Most of the people I see and shoot with just wear casual comfortable clothing and they perform just as well or better. I can appreciate that when in the open country and it is a benefit when camo is worn but paper targets cannot see as far as I know making it unnecessary. Is it just another idiosyncrasy which makes them believe they will perform better dressed as hunters or is it a relaxing escapism fantasy play role? After speaking to lots of the general public the general consensus of the sight of someone seen to be wearing camo clothing and carrying a rifle causes them concern even in open country. When asked what they did the common reply was 'I telephoned the police to report it'. I do not doubt that this is the result of so much negative press caused by an irresponsible minority but little appears to be being done to put forward the more positive aspects adopted by the vast majority of responsible shooters. Target shooting is a recognized Olympic sport after all and provides jobs and income to the country.
I intend to research this subject further when (if) I receive my degree so all views are welcome.
