When most started shooting it was mostly about trying new rifles
or calibres on disciplines both on the field and target
 .......  But now, the challenge of making one shot count ! !

Shooting holes on paper targets is fine for proving a rifleís ability
but when it comes to the capability, the person behind the rifle is 'probably'
always at fault .
So many shooters / Hunters tend to blame equipment (or
ammunition)
when a shot goes adrift they do not look at themselves,but look elsewhere
......... This is where we can help
