The next day we did the French shooting test, if you don't know what the French shooting test is I explain it here. As some incentive to do well one of our coaches, Jean, said that if anyone has a score of 500 or better he would buy them a coffee and a treat in the airport on the way home. Scoring a 500 is never easy in this test but it was going to be even more difficult today because wind was blowing pretty good, about half a flag to the right. Then as soon as we started the first part of the test the wind changed directions and started blowing about half a flag from the left. The precision part of my test was not terrible, but not my best either. After the first part, precision, I took an additional 5 shots to re-zero before the speed parts. This helped me to do pretty well in the test but not quite good enough to get treated by Jean. I scored a 497 only 3 points short of the sought-after 500, none the less it was still a good score.
