The Timneys go on sale on occasion through Midway, or wait for a 10-15% off coupon.
Right on Dr. Thanks for the PM also!!

But to get the thread back on topic, without out trigger time and practice, it doesn't matter what stock or trigger you put on it. I am going to have to try the coin trick. Makes for a fun competition for yourself. Shooting is just like any other sport, if you don't practice, you lose what you have learned after a while and develop bad habits. I have people out on the range that are qualifying and shoot great when they frist come in but after a year or so, you see their scores get lower and lower because they are not practicing. Those good habits that they had at first get lost and bad habits take their place.
For sure Korhil! Practice is where it's at. Even half-hearted practice doesn't make perfect-------PERFECT practice makes perfect.

With an emphasis on "proper practice".

If one is just a bundle of bad habits and continues to practice them, all you get is a shooter with deeply ingraned and well practiced bad habits.

As for the hogue, with that full length aluminum frame and bedding block you're right and they are just about fool proof. All that rubber also tends to naturally deaden much of the vibration as well.

Re: Trigger timing, training, practice

Main reason I bought my CZ 455 was simply to practice long range for cheap at short ranges. The drift of a .22 at 150 yards will teach you a ton about reading wind. There are no slippery high BC .22 bullets to compensate for a bad wind call. It makes shooting a 7mm VLD a piece of cake.

I have a similar Nikon Monarch on my little .22 as I do on my centerfire rifles. Same Nikoplex reticle with 2 MOA subtensions and same turrets with 12 MOA per revolution. Similar bolt and poundage setting on the triggers. Now if I could just find some more .22 ammo at reasonable prices.
