10 meter air pistol competition announcement

Shooting competition when hearing the word “competition”. It’s a common mistake that people think competition is only for professional shooters and there is no room for amateurs. Well, there is no room for a beginner, but if you’re someone who knows and have been practiced shooting, you’re invited to join us. Keep in mind that shooting sports are for gun nuts.

People usually complain about how they are not good enough and that they need more practice for competitions. If you want to participate, just do it. No one cares about how bad you are. And, by participating alongside with other professional shooters, you will learn new things and improve faster than you have ever been. Most pro players learn quickly and become pro after competitions.
