Canadian Airgun Grand Prix - Day 1

Day 1 of the 2008 Canadian Airgun Grand Prix...

The nice thing about this event is it takes place right in the hotel. They take over the conference rooms and have a good setup for registration, equipment check, scoring room etc.

I checked in and got my registration package and had my equipment pass the gun check and went over to the main area to do some practicing.

During practice time I like to get a feel for the range; how the lighting is in the room, how the targets look, how the target carriers operate, where the washrooms are. Details.

Practice went well with about 30 shots taken. I don't really have a set number of shots I take during practice, it is more a case of knowing when things just feel right. The gun is sighted in and shots are going where you expect them to. No need to over do it.

My first match is tomorrow morning at 10:15 am EST and I'll post up results after.
