    Today is my final day. I shot in the morning and while it was okay I wanted to finish on a better note. So I came out again this afternoon:

    Fairly uniform spread. Can’t say I’m grouping anywhere. I’m just putting it down to inconsistent pouch grip and release.

    But hey! Who’d have thought I’d be popping cds at 10 metres?
    Drop the macho bands.
    Practise.
    Read / watch videos about technique etc.
    Be confident.

    I was planning to cut a can at ten metres. But instead I kept missing. And missing and missing. I’m rubbish thought I then remembered
    “Confidence is everything.”
    So I got in to about three metres and backed off with every hit. And I hit every time and made it to ten metres wondering what the problem was.

    Noticing a few bulls creeping in there. I’m still looking for a strong, comfortable pouch release with no speed bumps. Just messing about at the moment. 0EB9AE31-5768-490A-9DED-FFD0C3AF6B36.jpeg 31CA05E3-CB6E-472C-8E7F-487861D80D1C.jpeg
    Rain nearly stopped play in the morning and cold in the afternoon. Took to shooting a leaf when there wasn’t enough paper to see where the shots went. Just wish I could get a comfortable release.

    1. Bit sore but no speed bump. Bit awkward to position.
    2. If fingers more flexible this works quite well.
    3. Speed bump. Nearly always.
    4. Bit of a weak grip.
