I would like to think that I always try and give some help when I am squaded with lower grade shooters. It depends on how I read them and if I think they will take the advice well

Triigger technique is normally a problem that I see and will point out ways to improve.

I have even advised people to lay off coffee right before a shoot as they commented that they struggle for the first few lanes and then seem to settle down - they had put it down to nerves but caffein could as easily been the problem.

I was lucky when new to the sport - I shot with people like Calps, Bainsey, Ian Taylor, Trev Ryan - all of them would give advice even though they knew you would be snapping at their heels one day
