AAR – Tarata Medium Range Shooting Competition

I haven't traditionally done an AAR (after action report) for shoots - but have decided (or realised) that it's a great way of reflecting on how I shot, what I did well, what I could do better.

PSNZ22 Rimfire Competition

Our second #PSNZ22 rimfire field shoot is done! 30 shooters turned up for another challenge but fun day of rimfire shooting.
