    Hi all

    Well after a few poor scores the self doubt has well and truly crept in :eek: in fact I fear my ego may
    shrink such is the rapid demise .....

    Have any of you OLD ' UN'S got any advice for a young slim fella with a full head of hair per chance ?

    many thanks indeed

    Dave

    I think I prefered the random crap posts :p

    You just need to start enjoying the shooting Dave, fook the scores for now, anyway you're that shite that you'll be forever beating yourself up :D

    Either that or just get yourself up to your land & practice a bit each week ;)

    I've just been lamping alot recently & not been to the club much as you know & I seem to be doing better for it :confused: ......... or maybe you don't have the confidence with the MPR that you had with the blinged 400 ??

    I've found that the more unhappy you are with your shooting the worse it gets, I try to just concentrate on shooting on the day, it's all you can do, if you have a working rifle & the aimpoints then if you miss it's down to your rangefinding, or ....... maybe you need a decent scope :D:p

    HTH

    Well, with words or encouragement like that from your fellow shooters and obvious fans, your scores can only go one way. . . . . in the general gravitational direction!

    what comes around comes around mate.

    You have it in you to knockout a decent score - sometimes outside factors affect us and we do not focus or zone in as much as we should :rolleyes:

    Just chill out and enjoy the fun of shooting - the scores will come :cool:

    It happens to us all - last week I scored a PB - last night I shot crap - my worst score ever and came totally last - what the hell - just enjoy it
