Re: SCATT - good idea for novice full bore target shooter?

Back in the day ... :roll: ... I moved from C grade to A in about 3 months, by practicing almost every day with an air rifle down the passage at home ... lunchtime ONLY, when SWMBO wasn't around.

I would certainly agree that it's easier to get people to try F Class than TR. Having "coached" new shooters on the mound (level 1 AIS) ... what with explaining breathing, hold, sighting etc etc etc. I'd need to double dose on the blood pressure tabs before trying that again ...

I asked if I could shoot a scoped rifle, I was told no,! i cured our old "fuddy duddies" of that attitude fairly quick. Although i was also interested in the open sighted jiggers, once i joined and had been a member for a couple months, I just brought along the scoped rifle any way. before too long...
