Default Who's your inspiration?

Probably a post out of left field,......but when I first started shooting air rifle 20 years ago over in this distant land there was an organised FT scene already going in UK. We bought the Magazines imported by our sports shops (usually a couple months behind) and we sat at the club discussing who and what was happening in far off UK.

I was a keen follower of Mr Field Target back then, Nick Jenkinsen. I followed the inception of the World Champs, and after a few intervening years I am now going to see one close up. So I suppose Mr J was an inspiration to pick up where I left off shooting a decade ago when the kids all growed up and left home.

Keen to hear who has been your inspirational shooting legends over the years, and at what stage you picked up the game.......

I'll start:

Nick Jenkinsen in the beginnings, and over the last few years Andy Calpin, what a gent giving up his glass trophy at GP9!
