Bookham Rifle Club air pistoliers attended a three hour training session with Olympic Air Pistol Champion Mick Gault on the new Air Range at the club. Four keen shooters started with some warm-up cards whilst being keenly observed by Mick who made adjustments to their stances. After some further practice, and modifications to one of the shooter’s air pistol, everyone sat down for a talk on technique. After tea (and Jeanette’s excellent cakes), everyone was able to practice and adapt their own technique, significantly improving their scores. One shooter shot a PB at 10m and another felt confident enough to fetch and shoot the first round of his summer competition cards! Everyone felt that they had gained a lot from the session and are looking forward to booking future sessions with Mick at the club.
