Results from Daisy National Championship

Congratulations go out to the FIRST team from Rockingham County to go to a NATIONAL competition!  After two long days of competition, including a 50 question safety test, the Rockin’ Shots came home in 47th place.  Rockin’ Shots was awarded the Eddie Harper memorial trophy which goes to the team that improved their score the most from their state qualification match. Most impressive was the fact that the top 5 shooters improved their score from the state qualification match 148 points!!   The team members were Abigail Showalter, Jacob Craun, Derek Liddle, Gabbi Hensley and Chandler Jordan.  The two alternates were Kevin Wanger and Shianne Nesselrodt.

Some of the highlights include:

  • Several shooters improved personal scores of over 30 points at some of their positions

  • Almost ALL of the shooters improved their scores on the 50 question safety test

  • We had several shooters in the top 200 in individual positions and one shooter score in the top 100 in one of her positions

  • Only 2 of our top 5 shooters were returning shooters, the remaining shooters were first year shooters!

Way to go ROCKIN’ SHOTS!!

Supported Sling Shooting

In competitive shooting it is important to take advantage of every opportunity to improve your performance.  One of the great options you have available in most positions is a sling.  It can be used in the Prone and Knelling position for Air Rifle and for BB it can also be used for the Sitting position.  An easy way to remember when you can use your sling for both disciplines is that you CANNOT use it in standing, all other positions allow it.  Using a sling provides you with an additional anchor point to lock in your Natural point of aim and it helps you retain accuracy between shots.  Watch this video for an excellent example of proper sling usage:
