First shoot!

Post by Jwhelan939 on Wed Jun 04, 2014 6:21 pm

After years of contemplating, I am finally competing in my first match tomorrow night. I have read a dozen books, practiced at the range, and wore out some snap caps dry firing. I was just wondering if anyone has any last minute advice for me?

Have fun!

Each shot is it's own match.  NEVER focus on score.  If you focus on following your process on each shot, you will get A score--and it will be a good one.

Relax, focus on the shot you are taking, not the one before or the one after.  And ask questions if you are not sure.  Bullseye people are some of the best to be around.  Who else would help you beat them?

There are matches, and then there are training matches.

This is a training match.  Focus on learning how the flow of the match goes and have fun.

Thanks all. It was a lot of fun. Did pretty well with the 22, but horrible with the 45. Guess I know what I need to practice. Shot 2 matches and my worst both time was 45 slow fire. I was pretty happy with a 235 and a 230 on the 22 though.

Great! Keep training to ingrain the fundamentals. At some point the memories won't be about the scores, but the friends made.
