Put it this way, I shot really well last year and won everything - Grand Prix Series (taking 1st at most of them), Paul James British Recoiling Championship, NEFTA Winter League, World Championships.

This year, I've won diddly squat.

Same gun, same internals, same batch of pellets.

The difference is, last year I practiced nearly every day, this year sometimes I didn't have any practice at all between GP's.

Having a nice gun can help make practice more enjoyable, but it won't win you any trophies without a boat load of practice.

If you've got time to fiddle with the internals of a gun AND practice every day, you'll be waaay ahead of the game. If you haven't got time - ditch the twiddling in favour of practicing.
