March 2015

 
My focus is turning to Sport Pistol, as the spring / summer time fast approaches. The British Squad have just received great news that the Tunnel Target Sports Center near Charmouth have been reissued with their licence for Section 5 pistols. This means I can train in Dorset with my Sport Pistol, rather than only at Bisley. This is fantastic news, as only with training do you improve and it was the Home Office didn't renew the Tunnel's Section 5 authority after the Olympics.
It's still tricky to shoot either at Bisley or the Tunnel as you need the right people present, but it's a start!
I'm looking forward to my first Sport Pistol competition this season at the end of March. This will be at Bisley.

Doing it on the day, when it counts - that's what it's all about. Training is all about improving your physical ability and mentally delivering this ability when it matters. The British Pistol Club Championships were a prime example of my solid recent performance, finishing in 2nd Place on both days. Whereas the British Championships, not quite so much! But it's what you learn and how you move on. Trying too hard in competition is easily done, and doesn't help!!
 
The winter Air Pistol season is all good preparation for my preferred Sport Pistol event. Training has started with this and I'm really looking forward to what the season has in store.
