    What an enjoyable day it was! Even though I didn't shoot, the people make this sport awesome. I enjoy the people as much as I enjoy shooting - maybe a bit more.

    You are so right Phats. It's the people who make or break a sport. In the sport of field target, everyone I have known is willing to help you better yourself. I am glad that you enjoyed the shoot. Me thinks you are a bit cautious because Daniel will hand you your proverbial.

    Thanks once again to the Mildots club... ALWAYS well-organised, and I can only remember one stoppage the entire day.

    Thanks too, to the tireless ROs and range officer who ensure it all happens without incident.


    I managed to pick the mild tricky (at times) wind every time, so I cannot blame it for ANY misses.

    3 standers, one of them a bread-and-butter shot were a cause of shaky irritation (dehydration from the night before, methinks).

    2 targets where when my brain and dialing hand went to sleep and the other two were trigger finger going walkabout from the sometimes-awake brain, so I KNOW what to fix for next time.

    Overall, happy with my performance.

    Mike, the main reason I started to shoot (other than Daniel asking me) is so that I can motivate him to do better each time (and better than dad), become more dedicated to the sport, and above all LEARN.

    Also, my work (electronics) has always been my passion & hobby. I needed something else for a hobby, hence the shooting, which I really enjoy.

    At his age youngsters tend to get quickly demotivated if they have a bad day. My job is to teach him perseverance, and that all the top shooter, or achievers in anything, had to put in the hours and hard graft to reach the top.

    Blud (and others) gave plenty of advice on Saturday and Daniel started doing some of it - Saturday was his best score thus far.
    I tried to remember as much as possible of what Blud said, not only for Daniel, but for myself as well.

    Not shooting had it's perks. It gave me ample time to really watch the other shooters - how they approach and do things, how they sit, stand and kneel.

    As for Daniel handing me my own proverbial - most probably, but for now, I'm blaming my missing tooth.
