Now, if the young man who won the worlds I'm assuming with a pcp and then shot and got the highest score with a spring rifle aswell, then yes no-one else would be a champion.
So what is the big problem mate!
I would have thought the same thing as sixshooter and I thought that whoever came 1st in there class is a world champion in that class but not the overall champion which I can appreciate.
Last year when Kyle won the recoiling section (No offence Kyle) we were all told he was the recoiling champion and hats off to him and to all who shoot springers and we all know how hard it is to shoot one compared to a pcp.
Anyway like I said im still buzzing from my 1st place win and until next year when someone else takes 1st place then im still a champion in the recoiling class at the worlds, Well im guessing I am anyway
Thanks all for you nice comments and its much appreciated and happy shooting to all
