Have a look at Clive's scores in the SHS for 2007/2008.
Fair enough fella. I see lads shooting springers at local clubs and they are miles better shooters than me. I haven't seen the SHS scores ... where will I find those? I looked at last year's UKAHFT scores and saw that Clive won most of the rounds. I can't get access to them at the mo so can't check what his average score was.
You will always get one offs mate ... and Clive is obviously a superb shot with a springer. I'll still stand by the fact that 'on average' a guy who shoots both will get a few more points with a pcp.
