Air Arms Field Target Captain James Osborne is discussing his passion for competition shooting and everything he is looking forward to in 2018.
What was your favourite competition of 2017?
Without a doubt it has to be the World Championships hosted by Wales. A well organised and run competition with enjoyable courses and good company.
Which competition are you most looking forward to in 2018?
I’m not sure yet, I’m trying hard not to think about the year ahead too much. But, I think (assuming I qualify) that the Masters and Showdown weekend should be fun and oddly enough it’s in Wales at Blaenau Gwent; must be something in the water…
Which was your most challenging competition of 2017?
The slog of the BFTA Grand Prix series, it is getting harder each year to try and keep focus throughout the series.
What is the hardest part about shooting in competitions?
What advice would you give to someone who will be shooting in their first competition this year?
Be nice and don’t beat the likes of me with our fragile egos
