Back in the 50's and 60's the Calgary Police used to carry Webleys and they called them the "Wobbly Webleys."

I shot my Fosbury and a Mk IV yesterday at my club?s, ECSASS, monthly shoot. Also used my ?94 Marlin and a Model 24 Marlin. Only 10 of us showed up with but we all had a great time. I only had 2 misses with the Mk IV. I love that Fosbury. The difference between the WF and the Mk IV with the same exact load is tremendous. Feels like nothing in the WF but a real handful in the Mk. That and the extreme difference in trigger pulls are what contributed to my misses on the second stage. I paid more attention for the rest of the match and did fine. I?m thinking that the Fosbury and my 1911 would be the perfect brace of ?autos? for next months match.

Congrats Ed! First, on shooting well and secondly, for having the WF! I would be glad to sell a couple of our neighbor's kids to have one of them!
