yep, we've got quite a few paper punchers on here (Sir Huckle, Chasemore, Hadlington to mention a few), they tend to be the quieter of the mob... would be good to see more of the paper side.

there's also the DSRPA paper league that i mention now and then, a postal air 10m & 6yd pistol and rifle comp, that you can enter anywhere in the UK.

I think many would be amazed at just how hardcore paper punching is... it might be a generalisation, but I think many see it as geeky or that the gear does the work, or that somehow it's not such a test of a shooter... but I think those exposed to it realise that the shooting principles need to be refined to an incredible degree to compete at the top. Athlete is a very fitting term.

we do have enormous talent out there in airgun shooting, it's nice to see it in all disciplines.
