Feltham, London -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/24/2015 -- The results recently released from the March European 10m shooting championships have excited much comment from industry experts, including justairguns.co.uk.
18-year old Seonaid McIntosh won silver in the air rifle - the first junior medal in 35 years for shooting. Her use of an air rifle was also the case in the Commonwealth Games, where she had been a representative for Scotland.
McIntosh was thoroughly pleased with her performance – which in itself indicated that there is much promise and engagement in terms of the growth of pistol shooting as a productive sport.
The use of air guns as a sport involves discipline, education and practice, which are desirable qualities in any competitive environment. Furthermore, the use of air guns in a controlled way within sport can be a way to engage young sportspeople.
"We think the news of a rising junior presence in air gun sports is highly positive," a spokesperson from Just Air Guns enthused. "Furthermore, this news follows up from Seonaid and her sister representing Scotland at The Commonwealth Games.
"We think this really highlights air pistol shooting as a competitive sport which is engaging, and is not limited by age or gender. A variety of people can enjoy air gun sports and the rise of facilities due to the greater publicizing of the sport means that prospects are better than ever.
"Shooting itself is a skilled and ultimately rewarding process through which you can progress – developing aspects such as aim and ability, as well as the prospect that there is always new technologies and developments to try out.
"Gun technologies, safety and security measures are also increasing and approving accordingly which means that the time has never been better to get involved in air gun shooting. We aim to provide the best guns tailored to the requirements of the individual, as well as a range of equipment to really help people be on point in the sporting world."
