I'm not "really serious about taking it further", in the sense of going anywhere with it, Si.
I am starting at an age where many people are thinking, if not saying, 'I'm not as good as I used to be'.
I'm primarily doing it for quite obscure reasons, related to my health and well-being.
However, I'm prepared to put as much work and effort into it, as is necessary for me to achieve my goals.

However, I do want to improve. And I believe that I have the potential to be a lot better than I am at present.
I suspect that I will never be a good shot; but I would like to feel that I'm amongst my shooting peers, rather than everyone else being in the next county.
I have been warmly admitted into the shooting fraternity, and I do appreciate that very much. But would like to be able to consistently shoot around a course with a little more dignity, than I do so at the moment.

And I do have access to a very proficient coach: a good shot and fast becoming a very good friend.
And since I been under his tutelage, I have improved significantly.
My target is to get from being a C Grade to B Grade. If I can accomplish that I will be satisfied.
You're only young once - so it's best to make it last for the whole of your lifetime.
