Oh, man, do I suck.

#1 Post by peejaybee » Fri Jul 06, 2018 2:47 am

So, I decided "Hey, I should shoot for the LGC Bullseye competition. Sure, my score is gonna be super-low, but it'll be fun!"

"Super-low?" Yeah, I guess zero qualifies! Obviously, I need to get to the range more. :D

Hey, at least you tried! Good for you for taking the first step.

That just means there's room for improvement. You don't want to shoot perfect all the time. That breeds complacency.

We grow as shooters through difficult challenges.

Keep at it.

Yeah, my first time was pretty dismal too. But keep practicing and keep pushing yourself and you are bound to get better. The whole point is the have fun while pushing your boundaries and learning something new.

You should take a lesson! Where do you live? There may be an LGC instructor in your area.

Good job trying it out! Keep at it and don't get discouraged. We all do it for fun and self improvement- scores don't matter. Put some targets closer in and get practice that way and build that confidence. Mostly, be safe and have fun. Hope to see you at the next one! :)
