Default A shot in the dark.

TD and I are about 450 miles apart but occasionally our paths cross a bit closer. I was in London doing some building maintenance and we arranged to meet up. It was cold and dark by the time we got to TDs wood but with a bit of illumination we got shooting. TD got better and better. I started okay and got worse and worse. Here are some edited highlights just as TD was entering the zone with some gusto.

a good evenings shooting... the talent jim brought along i stole at the end... although i think the frame swap to a certian un natty natty courtesy of our resident racoon helped...
its a shame the cold stopped play a little earlier than i would have liked... but a few cups of tea back at the TD mansion sorted out the cold fingers...

so not just a great shoot, but also a good chat about all things forum related... and few non forum...

i eagerly await the next time when i hope the weather and daylight are more in our favour...

we still managed a few hours of night shooting...

liturally what you see on cam is all we had to work with...

also i showed off the trade shooters from everyone i have traded with...

the work and finish has been appreciated in person by now 2 slingshooters...

Who had more shots on target doesn't really matter. Two mates sharing some banter and shooting time is what it's all about. Good stuff chaps!

"And I got it on camera as well." Classic line.

I just love the sound of smacking a can. That looked fun!

It's great you guys can hook up now and then.

agreed... that hard hitting THWACK is on the list of the best sounds...

right up there with the V8 rumble and a baby's laugh...

but i rarely get to have a proper shoot with anyone... especially somebody as skilled as Jim...

and being able to talk tips and tricks all while shooting and having a laugh is a great experience... i highly recommend meeting up with a fellow shooter if you have not managed it already...

thanks again for paying me a visit Jim, always a pleasure

Great stuff guys. Love to see my slingshot brothers from across the globe hooking up to kill cans. Awesome!
