Thanks Tony! I believe they call it English scroll engraving. I read somewhere that the good engravers around the twenties/thirties in London, worked for different companies like Holland & Holland, Purdey, Watson Bros and were mostly self employed. They were hired externally by these companies.

I love to shoot these competitions. I also tried IPSC a couple of times which is also fun. Do you also shoot competition Chief?

I am basically right-handed with left eye dominant. When I started shooting in the mid-60's with the CU team, the coach had me wear an eye patch over my left eye. Later, in the service, I was taught to focus using my right eye and ignore my left.
Now, in my 70's, I have developed the habit of slightly squinting my left eye to focus on my right. Yeah, it causes fatigue and probably reduces my ability, but I still have fun.

I have a right lazy eye and when they discovered it, it was to late to patch it up. I was to old. I believe when you are older then eight, it doesn't help anymore. I don't have squinting eyes so my parents and the doctor didn't noticed it.

There are a lot worse things in life, so I am not complaining. Indeed having a good time while shooting is the most important. The fun thing is, that I can outshout practically everybody (if not everybody) with a pistol at our shooting club. Yes, I know that sounds a little arrogant laugh I can also give a very long list of things that I am not good at, so this keeps it a little in balance laugh

No I can't give it the time I think it deserves.
I shoot with a lot of police officers & former military that want me to shoot on their squad.
I shoot better than some of them often........but I think that practice & friendly competition & real competition are very different.

True, real competition ads stress. In my case I must sometimes go to other shooting ranges, where they are being held. That is always less fun then a competition on your "own" range. A few hours drive to shoot five or ten minutes and half or more of the day is gone... I sometimes do it (a lot more in the past) but mostly do friendly competition at
our own club.
