How are you shooting under stress?
My shooting is terrible at the moment:-) I tried a real biathlon-track for the first time this weekend. Skis, Anschutz .22 straightpull, etc. The track was 7.5km with 5 shots prone at 2.5km and 5 shots standing at 5km. I got 2 out of 5 prone and 2 out of 5 standing... Runningtime is classified + 6 minutes penalty. Junior shooters, girls and boys, used me as a pylonmarker out on the track. Very sobering.
Torsten: You've got to try this...( don't bet with anyone!)

I know what you mean, I have not tried it on ski´s, but I have
signed up for our Reserve State Championship team and trained with them.
Summerbiathalon is the killer, no downhill coasting.
We shoot with a G-3 with a Platic training bolt to fire 7,62 Platic Training Ammo at 25 Meters, at a Bullseye Target.

neat posting on biathalon shooting, while sipping my morning expresso latte' and scrolling the newspaper I darn near choked on my biscotti.

So you've been to "Shooting and Winterwarfare Trainingcentre" at Elverum. I've been there several times. It's a cold place...
You were shooting Norwegian produced H&K G3's.
I think ski-biathlon is more difficult. You are wearing out your arms with the ski-poles on the track. They have no "juice" left for the shootingrange.
BTW. Ski-biathlon is the most entertaining shootingevent. Especially
the 4X7,5km relay. You americans should go to Salt Lake City Olympics in
2002 and watch it live.

point taken on the long arms thing, exept that we run with the rifles in hand, but thats still not working them in Skiing fashion.
I went to our Winter Warfare training in Mittenwald, I hate Mountains, you know, thin wind and such!
Norway would be nice though, now if I could just get the wife to
come along !
