Advantages Air Guns Over Firearms

Is there really a place for Air guns compared to powerful Firearms?

Are Air Guns only suitable for shooting tin cans or putting holes in paper targets?

We believe that there is a place for modern air rifles. Air gun pellets are less expensive to purchase compared to firearm bullets.

A good air rifle is more accurate than a comparable firearm. Many modern are powerful and accurate, very suitable for the hunting of small game such as squirrels rabbits and birds.

Here are a few benefits of air rifles versus firearms.

  • The ammunition will not deteriorate over time, as air rifle ammunition is simply a pellet; there are no primers powders or cases to worry about.
  • It is easier to own an air gun, as most states in the USA don’t classify air guns as firearms.
  • A good quality air gun is actually more accurate than a firearm up to

Basics of Jousting

Positioning the Lance

One of the most difficult aspects of the sport is simply positioning and holding the lance, and maintaining proper positioning on the horse. Knights typically lean forward aggressively during a charge in order to minimize the target of their torso. Using the bicep, hold the lance 15 degrees above level and aim it squarely at your opponent’s chest. Use the other arm to hold your shield in the direction of your opponent.

The Quintain

To anyone starting out in this medieval sport, you will likely begin training by using the quintain as a training tool. In simple terms,, a quintain is some kind of target that you aim at while jousting, until you have developed sufficient skill to be able to face off with an actual opponent. This may mean using a sandbag hanging from a pole, a shield attached to a post, or a small ring … Read the rest


Find Elusive Football Draws

Well, in the British league season, most teams play close to ‘form’, but Cup matches are more of a lottery when ‘giant killing’ happens fairly frequently, and are best avoided if you are serious about winning the football pools. So, to start, we only bet when the odds are optimal, and that means league games. In fact, we don’t bet when ‘form’ is likely to be compromised – e.g. on Boxing Day.

With a good football draw forecast system, you will be able to keep track of form and eliminate those matches which are certain home wins – there could be typically 22 home wins, many of which will have been easy to predict. As to away wins, these are harder to predict, and there will be, on average, 13-14 away wins on the coupon each week.

So, let’s say that we can predict 90% of the home wins – … Read the rest


Info of Sports Charters

For example, we understand that the average sized rugby player may be quite different to the average sized football player; this must go into consideration when organising a private charter. It wouldn’t be feasible to have a 50 seat aircraft for 50 rugby players and staff members, as the weight would greatly restrict the amount of baggage available on the flight. If a team does not have the budget to facilitate a larger aircraft, then we would look at arranging scheduled flights for some of the non-team members to be able to have capacity for the team’s baggage.

Dietary requirements are important for sportsmen. You would not see a world-class sports player tucking into the standard plane food. Football players tend to have a high carb diet to ensure they have the energy to keep them operating throughout a game; spaghetti bolognaise is a very popular option for sports teams … Read the rest


Info of Gun Range Etiquette

  • Pay attention to where you are aiming your gun’s muzzle. Unless you are ready to discharge your weapon, your muzzle should always be pointed toward the ground. This is one of the most important rules to adhere to at a gun range, because no one wants to believe that you are pointing your weapon at their face on purpose.
  • If the range leader asks you to do something, immediately comply. The two words that should have you sprint to attention the quickest are “Cease Fire!” When you hear that phrase, immediately stop discharging your gun.
  • If you need to change your target, be sure to wait until all the other shooters have put their weapons down and the range is quiet. Proceed to the target and replace it quickly, and then return to your designated lane. Do not pick your gun up again until the range is declared hot again.

Indoor Sports Lighting

When arranging indoor sport lighting, it is very important to make sure that it is managed by experts. While some people don’t think lighting needs to be handled that seriously, this is not true. In fact, it must be made sure that the people who are taking care of this matter are experienced and know how to arrange the lighting equipment. For example, it needs to be made sure that the lighting is uniform and equal in all parts of the playing area. The alignment and location is extremely important, since it can directly affect the performance of the players. Obviously, you cannot expect a great game if the players fail to see what they are doing!

Therefore, it is very important to ensure that the lighting is convenient. The lights, for example, need to be placed at proper angles and heights so that they do not disturb the players. … Read the rest


Warrior Dash Race

RACE WITH FRIENDS

If you have friends you can convince to run in these races with you, it is that much more fun! Sharing in the experience will give you months of laughter and conversation! For my first mud run I could not convince anyone to join me in the run… but I could persuade them to come along, with the promise of live music, ice-cold beer, and giant turkey legs that you eat with your hands like the “Warriors” use to do… not sure that this fact has been proven… but hey, it’s fun to pretend!

For all of the mud runs that followed, all I have had to do was show the pictures and describe the race and I had groups of friends wanting to join me!

WHAT TO WEAR

I usually opt for a sports bra and leggings or shorts when I do mud runs… leggings if … Read the rest
