do people honestly think its about practice day in day out? i will be honest and say i very rarely practice now, since ive been working and not at school i shoot once a week probably on average. i think at the beggining when you dont know your kit or you starting in the sport i can see the need to practice a lot because you have a lot to learn but after that its about gaining experience imo. although i would be better if i practiced because i would know my kit better i guess.
and with the grading i cant see any problem with it as long as the gradings were at the right benchmark
