My family, friends and work colleagues who don't know anything about modern target shooting air rifles are always surprised at the non traditional aspect of my customised Steyr LG110. They almost exclusively held a mental picture of a clapped out, traditional wooden stock air rifle found at a fair ground.

Most are impressed that at adult level, irrespective of age, gender and disability, we all compete together on the same course. At the wrong side of 50, what is usually surprising to the non shooter, is that I have such a passion for our sport and its various aspects.

Of course I tend to be a little evasive when talking about costs of equipment, travel, fees and sundries just in case my significant other finds out just how much my passion costs over the year!
