I am taking a break from plinking with m RWS 34 while I am recovering from back surgery. The day before my surgery, a friend of mine (Steve) came over to shoot paper targets and silhouette's at 30-41 yards. Great day to shoot: virtually calm. I did my all time best at 40 yards (5/16" group at 40 yards, see attached). Steve shot some great targets, too, with his Marauder. Ended the shooting session by shooting a silhouette with a 1/2" kill zone at 35 yards. Steve and I manage to hit the kill zone about half the time.
I'm hoping to get back to shooting next week. In about 6 weeks, I am going to give a try at field target shooting. I need to master the freestyle sitting position. I am hoping that the removal of the large bulge on my L5/S1 disk will give me more flexibility. Any good UTubes on FT positions would be appreciated!
In the meantime, I would like to build a Field Target 'hamster' for my D34 to raise the gun a couple of inches on my resting arm. I was thinking of using the rear action mounting screw as the mounting point for the hamster. This will accomplished by using a longer rear stock screw (1 1/2" longer than the stock screw), a 1" long spacer, and a 1/2" piece of 3"X4" walnut with a slot cut in the front to accommodate cocking.
Any thoughts on this? Thanks!
