All is not peaches and roses in shooting land.
Its time for all you Masters and Highmaster shooters to look inward to see what you have done for shooting lately. I received the following thoughts from a disgruntled sharpshooter today, and I think it bears some reflection about us and our sport. Here is the excerpt
that is pertinent to us all.
"....... I personally think the masters and high masters don't do enough for the new shooters. They should be the ones putting teams together, running the practices, putting together teams to go to Perry and recruiting new shooters. Instead they provide terrible pit service, nit pick other shooters incorrectly about rules and do nothing to make a new shooter want to come back to a match. I try to get squaded with non high master because of these reasons...."
Does this bother me--- no, not much, I've been called High Master scum by experts. (where is Coby D. these days?) However, it's hard to even argue with someone who thinks this way. So, lets use this a teachable moment, and try to see what it is that newer shooters expect from us, even if they are not totally aware of who gets a lot of the work done in shooting sports. I'm sure that we can all work a little harder for the benefit of the newer shooters.
