    This should be an excellent day, the report back from the Best Practice day held at Grizedale was superb, everyone ive spoken to who attended learned something no matter how experienced they were.


    One of the speakers on the forthcoming course Mr Govan is a wealth of info on ballistics, it would be worth going for me just to hear him,

    Going to attempt to get the day off...

    But no Best Practice handbook which I believe costs about £25 normally.
