Nationals 2016 was the first time I really felt like this was the sport for me. It was a large 4 day event that consisted of hundreds of shooters, it being my first year i felt very nervous. All these good shooters in one place, competing for the same podium and I’m h ave to shoot against them. Thats how i felt. And then while i was there i saw the companionship of having squadmates to pick up the slack if i wasn’t shooting on par. That was my first real experience at a large shooting event. Ive been three times since then and every year my shooting skills improve.
