UCD July Airgun Open 2011

UCD July Open 2011Not the greatest match ever, and a heck of a disappointment after breaking the 570 in training.


MQS!It took 10 years & the last push has taken 8 months of physical, mental and technical work, but I finally hit the MQS score of 570 tonight.

A good evening's training, with a change to jacket buttons and a lesson learnt about the MEC Free rearsight.
